Remote Work Available
The Arizona State Land Department manages more than 10,000 leases, permits, rights of ways, sales and other contracts relating to the management use and disposition of 9.2 million acres of State Trust lands. State Trust lands are lands granted to the State of Arizona pursuant to the federal Enabling Act. The Trust lands are held in Trust for the common public schools and 13 other public institutions. Any use or disposition of Trust lands must benefit the Trust's beneficiaries.
Under the supervision of the Planning & Engineering Section Manager, the Land Development Engineer applies professional engineering knowledge and skills to a variety of moderate to complex civil and environmental engineering assignments that can be diverse in scope. The position requires independent judgement, initiative and the ability to effectively present and explain moderate to complex professional engineering evaluations and recommendations to non-technical audiences and decision-makers.
The Land Development Engineer’s role is not regulatory in nature but is focused on managing and reviewing land development proposals. Responsibilities include managing consultants preparing and reviewing infrastructure assessments to determine what off-site wet and dry utility and transportation infrastructure is available or needed to serve eventual development; reviewing applications for lease, sale or rights-of-way to ensure that proposed uses will ultimately retain or enhance the land values; evaluating drainage reports to consider on- and off-site impacts; managing and reviewing permit applications including Sections 404, 401 and 208 of the Clean Water Act; reviewing applications for Certificates of Convenience and Necessity; reviewing dam safety reports, and reviewing site plans and transportation corridor plans.
