Urban Planner/Zoning Officer position

With the current Zoning Officer leaving, the City of Harrisburg has an opening in the Planning Bureau for an Urban Planner/Zoning Officer.

I’ve attached the advertisement and job description. With graduation around the corner (or has it already passed?), I’m hoping this is an opportune time to get applications from students. Although it’s pretty well laid out in the job description, I am particularly interested in students with strong GIS skills – I want the Bureau to be more efficient, technical, and responsive to the public, which I believe requires heavy use of GIS and related software.

Please pass this on to the necessary staff so that it gets circulated at Gettysburg. Thanks man!
