A day in the life of a Land Entitlement Manager
As a Land Entitlement Manger your day-to-day work will focus on advancing projects through the entitlement stage after Land Investment Committee approval.  That could entail pursuing site plan approvals, bonding and governmental or environmental permitting. You will spend most of your time in the divisional office coordinating between the internal team, local governments and our consulting and contractor trade partners to design, approve and permit each individual neighborhood. As you move throughout your day, you will attend meetings with other internal departments such as sales, purchasing, production and architecture, to communicate planning and design assumptions that evolved, and may affect other departments within the home selling and building process. You may find on some projects, planning, design and permitting activities take patience and perseverance while working with external partners and local governments to move the process forward. You will manage external consultants by compiling, executing and recording legal deeds of subdivisions, easements and creation of neighborhood HOAs. Each day you are evaluating project costs for tasks that you are assigned and managing parts of the overall development budgets for your assigned neighborhoods. Some days will take you out of the office to attend building industry association chapter meetings and municipal stakeholder meetings to establish positive working relationships with key industry trade partners and government staff to aid in the entitlement process. You will also be learning more about the land development and homebuilding processes by interacting with your peers onsite in the field.  By visiting active projects, you will increase your understanding of construction best practices which can then be applied to forward planning and design of your future projects. Your ability to start new activities when needed and initiate meetings and relationships benefit you in this role.
