San Francisco Planning Dept. – Planner II (Preservation Planner)

The San Francisco Planning Department (CPC)  is seeking to fill a vacant TPV Planner II – Preservation Planner position.  Under the direction of the Principal Planner (Planner IV-Environmental Review), the 5278 Planner II – Preservation Planner performs mid-level preservation-related environmental review work pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).  The core work of this position entails determination of whether properties contain historic resources under CEQA and, where such resources exist, whether proposed projects would have significant adverse effects on the resources.  Projects reviewed include development permits, infrastructure projects, area plans, legislation, and other approvals.

This is an opportunity to work in a dynamic, interdisciplinary, and innovative department and share in our vision to make San Francisco the world’s most livable urban place – environmentally, economically, socially and culturally.

Essential duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Conduct archival and field research.
  • Scope, review, and direct technical reports and other documents prepared by professional historic resource consultants and others.
  • Prepare historic resource evaluation responses (HRERs) that evaluate historic resources and analyze the potential impact to a historic resource of a proposed project under CEQA, including review for compliance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
  • Coordinate with and assist other Environmental Planning staff in the development of scopes of work and review of the historic resource components of background technical documents and CEQA determinations, including exemptions, negative declarations, and environmental impact reports.
  • Maintain project schedules while meeting requirements for adequate review.
