Martin County is ideally located in Florida halfway between Miami and Orlando. The County contains 556 square miles bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the East, Palm Beach County to the South, Lake Okeechobee to the West and St. Lucie County to the North. This “Treasure Coast” jurisdiction values and protects its pristine natural resources which include America’s most diverse estuary system and 81 miles of protected inland waterways. Martin also offers excellent residential communities and a full complement of quality of life amenities. Growth management is the primary issue facing the County.

Martin County operates under a commission-manager form of government. Accordingly, policy is set by a 5-member Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) which appoints a County Administrator to implement policy to manage the functions of the government for which the BOCC is responsible. The County employs approximately 1,650 and operates on a FY 2006 total budget of $202.1 M.

The Community Development Department is a new Department responsible for the Community Redevelopment Agency, Affordable Housing and the Hurricane Housing Recovery. A primary focus is the proper execution of the County’s seven established CRA plans. Also, critical is the development of affordable housing both through neighborhood revitalization and the development of new housing. The departmental budget for FY 2007 is $2.87 M and it is staffed with 11.25 FTE’s.

The Community Development Director reports to an Assistant County Administrator. Requirements include a four-year degree (master’s preferred) from an accredited college or university in planning, architecture, public or business administration or a related field and six (6) years of progressive experience in a field closely related to this work such as land use planning, urban development or redevelopment. Must be skilled in research, written and verbal communications, leadership and management and be adept with modern planning and office technology applications.
