Landscape Designer

Job Description:

The City of Eugene Public Works Department is hiring three Landscape Designers to help implement an updated vision for Parks and Open Space in Eugene.

The vision for Parks and Recreation in Eugene is a system of beautiful, inspiring places that foster personal, community and environmental health while upholding four core principles:

Care for and make the most of what we have.
Serve the entire community.
Create more connections.
Build better partnerships.

This is the foundation of the recently completed Picture. Plan. Play. A Vision and Implementation plan for Eugene’s Parks and Recreation System, which can be found at www.eugparksandrec.org. Eugene voters recently passed two ballot measures to implement this plan, providing additional funding to maintain and renovate existing parks and recreation assets and to expand the system into underserved areas of the city.

Three additional Landscape Designers are needed to assist with these and other important City priorities. One position will reside in the Parks and Open Space Division of Public Works and the other two will work in the Engineering Division of Public Works. While the duties, skills and qualifications are generally shared, the focus of work varies based upon which Division the position resides. In the Parks and Open Space Division, the focus is on public land management, park repair and renovation, conceptual level park design and public engagement. The focus of work in Engineering is on final design development, construction documents and specifications, project bidding, and construction inspection. Work may also include support, assistance, and consultation on other City projects, including green stormwater infrastructure development and natural resource improvement projects.

These positions perform a variety of complex support duties involved in the coordination of public review, design, permitting, planning, and construction of City parks, open space, and related facilities; coordinate landscape architectural activities with other divisions, departments, agencies, and the public; may act as project manager of assigned projects; and work as a team member with Landscape Architects, other Landscape Designers, and Engineers.
