Caltrans Is Looking for a New Transportation Planning Division Chief

Screen Shot 2016-11-01 at 3.31.29 PM

Long-time Caltrans planning chief Katie Benouar is retiring, so there's a job opening up at the top of the transportation planning division.

Given Caltrans' recent upper level shifts in focus from a “highway department” to one that focuses, or tries to focus, on all transportation userseven bikes—this is a key position. It needs someone who can work well with others, including other state agencies and departments, to oversee planning, funding, and technical assistance programs that affect air quality, climate change, energy use, and public transit—in short, every aspect of California's transportation system.

Can we get someone great in this job, please?

The job is located in Sacramento, and the application is due November 18.
