Jefferson County Greenways Superintendent 

01-15-2024 16:34

Jefferson County Greenways Commission seeks an extraordinary leader to steward the region’s greenways, parks, and recreational areas.  

The Jefferson County Greenways Commission (Commission) was established in May 2023 to oversee Red Mountain Park, Ruffner Mountain, and Turkey Creek Nature Preserve, signaling a significant shift in the management and care of parks within Jefferson County, Alabama. Jefferson County surrounds and includes Birmingham, Alabama, a progressive, affordable, and revitalized small city with a rich history of change and progress, including as the forefront of the Civil Rights movement that reshaped the nation.

The Commission is a first-of-its-kind parks system model. Park responsibility has traditionally rested with individual municipalities, but the expansion of the County’s beloved nature parks requires a collaborative, cross-jurisdictional approach to effectively manage on a regional scale. With this position, once again, Birmingham will play host to groundbreaking change. This unique model offers an opportunity for a park leader to implement a pioneering unified management strategy.

We seek an individual with a high degree of independence who will be the driving force behind turning the Commission’s vision into reality. The Superintendent must efficiently manage the protection of the Commission’s cultural and natural resources, real property, plans, and procedures to provide quality service and experience to the public. They must maintain cooperative professional relationships within the community and ensure clear, direct liaison with local, county, and state governmental entities.

The Superintendent will bring park leadership expertise and extensive experience in park operations, capital improvement projects, and personnel management. They will lead an established team, collaborate with the Commission and key stakeholders, and manage the parks’ fiscal and operational health. The ideal candidate is people-focused, skilled at developing staff, and experienced in creating and tracking progress toward clear strategic objectives. We seek an expert implementer to maintain overall operational excellence; align strategic direction, vision, and policy; and uphold the parks’ integrity and fiscal sustainability.
