Lake County is located in the beautiful north coast region of California, just a short drive from Sacramento, the coast and the Bay Area. With a population of around 65,000 and covering over 1,300 square miles, there is plenty of room to recreate in Lake County. Outdoor activities abound, including cycling, hiking, fishing, water sports, birding, off-roading and horseback riding. Clear Lake, perhaps the oldest lake in North America is ranked by Bassmaster as one of the Top 10 bass fishing lakes in North America. Try our many streams and reservoirs for fishing and recreational opportunities throughout Lake County on most weekends, including the wildly popular Catfish Derby, Sprint Boats, Seaplane Splash In and the gorgeous boats of Wood & Glory, the largest antique boat show on the West Coast, to name just a few.

The new Deputy Community Development Director will be a hard worker who can accomplish critical objectives while also supporting the work of others. The ideal candidate will be a leader who can make the changes necessary to keep Lake County a desirable place to live and do business. The County is looking for a seasoned community development professional who can offer exceptional customer service to both internal and external clients.
