The Rancho Santa Fe Association was incorporated in July of 1927 as a California nonprofit corporation for the purpose of managing the planned community of Rancho Santa Fe, a community with a rich history. The exclusive, secure, rural character of the community, combined with its proximity to the ocean, are what sets Rancho Santa Fe apart as being a highly desirable place to live. The Association is seeking a proven leader to serve as the new Building Commissioner. The ideal candidate will have outstanding organizational and planning skills; a strong understanding of the historic architectural significance of Rancho Santa Fe and the community character; demonstrated strength in documentation and mitigation; and experience in Common Interest Developments, including the required legal governing documents. Candidates must have knowledge of principles and practices of urban planning, architectural design, civil engineering, and landscaping. A Bachelor’s degree, or the equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree, is required from an accredited four-year college or university with major coursework in planning, architecture, landscape architecture, or a closely related field; and at least five (5) years of progressively responsible experience in municipal planning/community development, including one year of project management experience and work on more complex planning issues. Prior planning experience in a California municipality and a background in architecture and design will be highly desirable. The annual salary range for the Building Commissioner position is $120,000-$140,000; placement within this range is dependent upon the qualifications and experience of the selected individual.
