The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission

Largo, MD United States

The Prince George’s County Planning Department of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission has two exciting opportunities in the Placemaking Section of the Community Planning Division!

Do you have experience revitalizing underutilized public spaces? Do you have a passion for connecting with the community through the canvas of the built environment? Do you have project management and time management skills? If so, we are looking for you! Join our innovative team dedicated to transforming spaces into vibrant, inclusive communities. At the Prince George’s County Planning Department, we believe in the power of placemaking to enhance the quality of life for individuals and foster a sense of belonging. Our Placemaking Section specializes in creating dynamic environments where people can live, work, and play harmoniously.

You will use your creativity as you work with the Placemaking Section to shape the work program for the coming year and beyond. Taking your cue from existing plans and studies, along with interactions with community groups and leaders, you will craft meaningful placemaking activations that will help show how placemaking can achieve local goals, short and long term. You will lead interdisciplinary teams, including community-based organizations, artists and entertainers, staff, consultants, and agency partners, in the development of these Placemaking activations. You will help us continue to build the brand of “Placemaking Prince George’s” as we seek to build capacity in our local communities, from the urban areas on the edge of Washington D.C., to the very rural areas on the outer edges of the county, and everywhere in between. The County has a rich cultural heritage, as reflected in the diversity of its residents and business population. You will get the chance to build lasting relationships with different communities, and spearhead innovative and exciting projects. We look forward to hearing from you!
