The Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR)—the leading non-profit organization in the U.S. devoted exclusively to championing land cleanup and reuse—seeks a new Executive Director, to be based at their headquarters in Oakland, California.
CCLR’s mission is to enable communities to develop sustainably and equitably by restoring underutilized properties to productive reuse. The organization serves as the major non-profit thought leader in the area of land recycling, and convenes, consults, and collaborates with communities, government agencies—including the U.S. E.P.A. and state environmental agencies—and the private sector to encourage the development of impacted land in ways that reduce inequity and increase community wellbeing.
CCLR serves as a trusted advisor, facilitator, and project manager focused on the various aspects of urban infill and brownfield redevelopment. Our work builds local capacity to create job-generating redevelopment, restore the environment, and build more equitable, healthy and prosperous futures.
CCLR has experienced substantial growth since its founding in 1996, and since 2015 has evolved from its West Coast roots to become a national organization with offices in Oakland and New York, supporting robust local programs in New York, New Jersey, and Puerto Rico as well as California, Nevada, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
In addition to its state-specific programming, CCLR is a national thought leader on land recycling and a leading advocate for funding and improved land reuse policy at the state and federal level. The organization has been nationally recognized (including recognition by the U.S. E.P.A.) for its leadership on community revitalization, and for its focus on social and economic equity. In 2018 alone, CCLR provided 265 communities with individual technical assistance, and served over 3000 with webinars and workshops.
CCLR offers a competitive salary commensurate with experience and qualifications, and a generous benefits package, including medical and dental benefits, a 401k plan, and PTO.
