Job Description

The City of Greenbelt, Maryland (pop. 24,555), an easily accessible suburb of Washington D.C. located in Prince George’s County, was created in 1937 as the first “greenbelt” town or garden city created inside a ring of woodlands. The homes in Greenbelt were grouped in "superblocks," with a system of interior walkways permitting residents to travel from their homes to the town center without crossing a major street. Pedestrian and vehicular traffic were separated, and two curving major streets were laid out upon and below a crescent-shaped natural ridge, with shops, school, ball fields, community buildings and the like grouped in the center.

A diverse community, Greenbelt has expanded to include new housing and commercial areas just outside of the historic core. The City still maintains its small-town atmosphere, parks, playgrounds, cooperative spirit, and some of the most distinctive and affordable housing in the Washington area. Greenbelt is committed to promoting and participating in environmentally friendly causes to help make the City better for the future.

The City of Greenbelt is seeking a visionary leader committed to excellence in public service to serve as their next City Manager. As Chief Administrative Officer, the City Manager reports to the City Council and oversees the following departments: City Clerk, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Planning and Community Development, Police, Public Information and Communications, Public Works, and Recreation. The City Manager also oversees Greenbelt CARES, the social services program, serves as an adviser to the City Council, prepares a budget for City Council’s consideration, and carries out the council’s policies.

The starting salary for this position will be $165,000 to $185,000, depending upon qualifications and experience. The City of Greenbelt offers a comprehensive, competitive benefits package to include medical, dental, prescription, life insurance, retirement (401a and 457b), Maryland State Retirement Pension, vacation, sick, and holiday leave, long term disability, and other voluntary ancillary benefits. Relocation expenses are negotiable.

The position requires a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in Public Administration or a related field, and a minimum of five years progressively responsible municipal experience, or any combination of education and experience that demonstrates the skills and abilities to perform the work. Candidates may distinguish themselves with a master’s degree.
