Interested in becoming the City of North Plains' next Public Works Director?

By joining our team, the Public Works Director has the opportunity to give new strategic direction to the department and work on a large array of interesting projects and developments. Our small but talented staff of under 25 City employees throughout five departments are proud to serve in an open, supportive, and flexible environment where we work to provide services, solutions, and outcomes that help our community to thrive. North Plains is a small, growing semi-rural city 17 miles west of Downtown Portland on the edge of Oregon’s innovative Silicon Forest, and less than an hour from the Oregon Coast. With over 3,400 residents and 160 businesses, our gradual and thoughtful growth over the years has helped to maintain a friendly, small-town atmosphere. Residents enjoy the benefits of a well-managed inventory of improved streets, parks, bike/pedestrian infrastructure, and water systems, as well as easy access to major employers, recreation, entertainment, and nature. The City is investing in our municipal infrastructure with a goal of becoming a complete community, and the right Public Works Director will be essential in helping the City achieve this goal. We have a tight-knit and supportive office culture, an employee friendly PTO policy, and are looking for an enthusiastic and innovative individual to be part of our team.
