In an effort to increase public participation and receive additional requests for amendments to the 2024 Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan, the deadline for submittals is extended through Sept. 15, 2022.
Public requests for reclassifications and other amendments may include urban growth area sizing, property zoning, goals and polices as well as County Code. Examples could include:
- Zoning changes that increase the amount of housing or development allowed on a property.
- Zoning changes that allow commercial or industrial uses on a property.
- Code changes that impact the development of certain uses in a specific area.
Submission forms, along with a link to schedule a virtual appointment with staff to answer submittal and process questions, are available at the Comprehensive Plan Update website at kcowa.us/compplan.
Kitsap County began soliciting requests last June in an effort to increase public participation and receive specific requests for amendments as early in the process as possible. Proposals will be reviewed for potential inclusion in land-use alternatives or draft documents that will be approved by December 31, 2024.
The Comprehensive Plan establishes the direction for Kitsap in addressing land use, environmental protections, employment, housing, transportation, and other facility and service priorities over the next 20 years. The Board of County Commissioners use this document to guide decisions on policy, County Code, and development review.
