Placer County is comprised of over 1,400 square miles of beautiful and diverse geography, ranging from the residential and commercial areas of South Placer, through the historic foothill areas of Auburn, Foresthill, and Colfax, and to the County's jewel of the North Lake Tahoe basin. Placer is a great place to live, work, play, and learn! For more information about Placer County, please visit www.placer.ca.gov.
Few matters are of greater urgency to Placer County than forest management and wildfire prevention. Due to the County’s geography connecting the valley floor to the Sierra Nevada mountains, the foothills are one of the most high-risk areas in the State to experience a major wildfire with loss of life and structures. Over the years, the County has strategically advocated for proper forest management through financial partnerships with state and federal agencies, with a focus on watershed protection. This position will leverage that work with other County efforts currently underway in the County Executive Office, the Public Works Department, the Office of the Agricultural Commissioner, and the Office of Emergency Services (OES) for a broadened multi-disciplinary approach to this critical challenge.
Under direction from the County Executive Officer or designee, this position will lead the County’s multi-disciplinary strategies to work in collaboration with state and federal agencies to manage forested lands that pose a risk to Placer County residents, property, and critical infrastructure. This will be a multi-year initiative with the potential to involve many County partners and Placer County elected officials. As per the Board of Supervisors 2020 legislative direction, this position will effectively integrate and coordinate related departmental initiatives across the organization with state action, federal agencies, and a potential coalition of Sierra foothill counties facing similar challenges.
