Jeff Smith, Senior Parks Planner 

Jeff has worked for Parks since 2019.

How does your position impact the community?

! get to plan and design meaningful outdoor spaces that people can use every day. Whether it’s a neighborhood park that is used by children for playing, or a community center used by adults and seniors for exercise or programs, or even a greenway trail for anybody who wants to get out and explore nature or find a different way to get to work. From sports facilities, to pools, to the zoo, I try to help provide something for everybody here in the community.

What have you learned since working at the City?

There are a lot of extremely smart, talented people working for the City. Everyone is always willing to help out and work together. Whenever I get to work with another department, it is always an enjoyable experience, and I always learn a lot from it.
