DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION Exam Title : Regional Operations Manager - Regional Park and Open Space District (RPOSD) Exam Number : D8773B-R Type of Recruitment : Open Competitive Job Opportunity Filing Dates: Applications will be accepted starting Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 8:00 A.M. (PT) until Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 5:00 P.M. (PT). With more than 10 million residents, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the nation. As the largest employer in Southern California, over 112,000 employees in more than 36 Departments provide vital public services as diverse as law enforcement, property assessment, public health protection, water conservation, cultural activities and many more. Named to Forbes' 2019 list of "America's Best Employers," Los Angeles County offers broad career growth, outstanding benefits, and competitive salaries. We are the largest employer in Southern California with opportunities for you to make a difference in the lives of our 10 million residents. About the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation owns 182 beautiful parks including natural areas, wildlife sanctuaries, lakes, trails, arboreta and botanic gardens and local, community and regional parks. The Department also operates the largest municipal golf system with 20 courses at 18 locations and owns great cultural venues including the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre and the Hollywood Bowl. The mission and goals of the Department are accomplished through unwavering support from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, County Chief Executive Office, partnerships with other County departments, Friends Groups, Foundations, non-profit groups and other organizations and agencies and through a team of talented and dedicated employees and volunteers who understand completely how Parks Make Life Better! About the Department's Regional Park and Open Space District Since its inception in 1992, the Department's Regional Park and Open Space District has awarded more than $1.5 billion in grants to cities, County departments, state and local agencies and community-based organizations for projects to improve and rehabilitate our parks, recreational facilities, trails, and open space land. In 2016, Measure A passed by an overwhelming majority of Los Angeles County voters. With the passage of Measure A, voters of Los Angeles County chose to continue their support for local parks, beaches, open space, and water resources by approving an annual parcel tax of 1.5 cents (subject to adjustment) per square foot of development, excluding exempted properties. The estimated tax for the owner of a 1,500 square foot home is $22.50 per year and is included on the annual property tax bill. Generating approximately $100 million per year, Measure A replaced dedicated funding from the voter-approved Propositions A of 1992 and 1996 which expired. Measure A provides funding to acquire and improve public spaces and park projects, to create and maintain neighborhood city parks, to assist in reducing gang activity, to create safe play areas for future generations, and to conserve and protect local water sources and undeveloped natural areas. In order to serve park needs and address the inequities highlighted by the 2016 Parks Need Assessment, unprecedented grantmaking components and initiatives were introduced by Measure A, including competitive grant solicitations, technical assistance, and a citizens' oversight committee. We believe in outstanding ethics in the work environment! BENEFITS INFORMATION Click here to see a list of employee benefits.
