Since 2008, Turenchalk Planning Services has provided land use services to clients in Santa Barbara County and throughout California.  We are currently looking for an Assistant Land Use Planner to help with all aspects of our business. Position can be full-time or part-time and salary will be dependent on experience. 


The successful candidate will be an energetic, positive, flexible, ethical professional.  The position will require you to work independently on various tasks, ranging from assisting private property owners through the application and permitting process at various local, state, and federal agencies to providing due diligence and policy research and analysis to potential buyers of property.  An important part of this job is the ability to build relationships and work respectfully, tactfully and creatively with clients, other consultants, and staff at governmental agencies.

While we have some clients throughout the State, most of our clients are based in Santa Barbara County.  As such, the ideal candidate will have land use experience within Santa Barbara County and/or the Cities of Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria.  Experience with the California Coastal Commission, CA and US Fish and Wildlife, US Army Corps of Engineer and Regional Water Board a plus.  However, we are willing to train the right person.
