      Strategic Planning Intern - Volunteer
      City of Oakland
      Community and Economic Development Agency – Planning and Zoning
      Division

      The City of Oakland Planning and Zoning Division is seeking a
      part-time volunteer intern to help staff with long-range planning
      projects. On-going projects include updating the City's zoning
      regulations (Citywide Zoning Update), Food Policy (mobile food vending
      and urban agriculture), the Lake Merritt BART Station Specific Plan, the
      Broadway-Valdez Specific Plan, and the West Oakland Specific Plan, among
      other projects. The internship provides a great opportunity to learn
      about long-range planning at the City.

      Skills and Abilities: Minimum qualifications include at least one year
      of academic and/or work experience in City & Regional Planning or a
      closely related field, proficiency with Microsoft Word and Excel, and
      strong graphic and mapping capabilities. Interns should be comfortable
      using ArcGIS, which would include, at a minimum, having skills in basic
      map design and experience performing attribute and spatial queries.
      Advanced GIS skills or advanced skills with other graphics programs
      (e.g. Illustrator, Photoshop, Publisher) are desirable.


      Compensation: This is an unpaid position. For current students, it may
      be possible to earn academic credit for the internship work.


      Availability: Interns should be available to work at least 15 hours per
      week during regular business hours. Days of the week and hours are
      flexible. We are aiming for a start date in mid-September.

      Please send a resume and cover letter to the attention of Holly Pearson,
      AICP.
