Job Posting: Cache Metropolitan Planning Organization Planning Manager Position

From: "Jeff Gilbert via Utah Chapter APA Listserv" <utahapa@PROTECTED>
Date: August 14th 2023

The Position:

As a small Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the successful candidate for this position will have the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of diverse planning and administration functions. The Cache Metropolitan Planning Organization (CMPO) is the regional transportation planning and intergovernmental coordination agency for a large portion of Cache County in Northern Utah.

Minimum Qualifications:

A bachelor’s degree in planning, public policy or administration, landscape architecture, transportation planning, civil engineering, or some other field directly related to transportation planning.

Two (2) years of responsible experience performing the above and related duties.


An equivalent combination of education and experience sufficient to successfully perform the essential duties of the job such as those listed above.

Ideal Candidate:

In addition to the above requirements, the successful candidate will possess the following: Practice positive working relationships and collaboration with fellow employees, elected officials, other agencies, and the public. Be accountable to the CMPO Executive Council and other employees; valuing integrity, open communication, and professionalism in all interactions.  

This is a full-time appointed exempt position generally working Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Employment will be directly with the Cache Metropolitan Planning Organization (CMPO) and not Cache County Corporation (however, the CMPO is currently housed at Cache County). Benefits are provided by the CMPO (not Cache County) and include participation in the Utah Retirement System (URS), health, life and dental insurance. As a local government agency, the CMPO has opted out (and does not participate in) the federal Social Security program. Instead, the CMPO pays the equivalent employer paid portion of Social Security (6.2%) to each CMPO employee to invest in their own individual retirement account as they see fit.

Interested candidates must complete an application on the Cache County Website,

Jeff Gilbert, Executive Director
