The Ideal Candidate

Mount Pleasant is seeking a new Director of Development Services to join their dynamic municipal team to help encourage and guide the development in the growing community. The next Director will bring a proven history in city planning to this multifaceted role, collaborating with key stakeholders to ensure a coordinated, successful end-result for a variety of projects. The Director of Development Services must be a strategic and creative thinker, possessing exceptional leadership and management skills, and must be ready to embrace and maintain strong partnerships with our development community to prioritize smart, sustainable growth and enhance the quality of life in Mount Pleasant. Primary areas of responsibility include Planning, Building Inspections, and Code Enforcement, as well as working to establish strong zoning ordinances and implementing the comprehensive plan. 

The Community 

Located in Northeast Texas along Interstate 30, Mount Pleasant is an easy drive to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Shreveport and Little Rock. Yet, there’s no reason to leave this thriving Micropolitan community where tall pines and a rolling terrain create a beautiful and serene setting for the county seat and largest city in Titus County. Mount Pleasant’s diverse community enjoys an enviable Texas lifestyle. Boating, fishing, skiing, hunting, riding, hiking, running and organized sports are all options with 10 city parks, including the new 150-acre Mount Pleasant Sports Complex opening soon. Within minutes are the acclaimed Lake Bob Sandlin State Park and Lake Cypress Springs offering top-notch water sports, camping and picnicking. Mount Pleasant Country Club, overlooking Town Lake, is another great place to be outdoors with its 18 hole championship golf course, tennis courts, pool, full restaurant and bar.

In the heart of the city is the historical Downtown District, which holds the distinction of being both a National and Texas Main Street City. Centered upon the Titus County Courthouse, built in 1895, Downtown Mount Pleasant is a charming destination where citizens and visitors enjoy shopping and dining. The city celebrates Christmas in a big way, with the largest lighted Christmas Parade in Northeast Texas! While Mount Pleasant’s quality of life exceeds the norm, the housing and cost of living is significantly lower than the national average. Home choices range from historical renovations near Downtown to newer family-friendly neighborhoods. Students are served by Mount Pleasant ISD (Go Tigers!) as well as the Hart Bluff and Chapel Hill ISD’s. Higher learning and trade/tech training is also available locally at Northeast Texas Community College, and quality medical care is ensured by the Titus Regional Medical Center and related medical practices based in Mount Pleasant.
