Job Description

Dear Santa,

This year, all we want for Christmas is a super awesome Planning Manager to add to our really cool Planning & Community Development Team.  Let them know Baytown is really growing and they’ll get to be a part of our community’s bright future. Oh yeah and let them know they’ll love the benefits, especially the 2-to-1 match in their stocking for retirement.

We’ll be sure to leave milk and cookies for you in the office. If you don’t like milk, there will be Dr Peppers in the refrigerator.

Love, The Planning & Community & Development Team

P.S. Also give them our website  so they can send us their applications. And please send us a snow day.
