The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners is now considering an ordinance to resolve an appeal of a 2018 Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan amendment. That amendment adjusted the southeast boundary of the George’s Corner Limited Area of More Intensive Development (LAMIRD), which is located in North Kitsap around the intersection of SR-104 and Miller Bay Rd. The proposed ordinance will re-adjust the southeast boundary of the George’s Corner LAMIRD and rezone portions of two parcels.  The amendment will not change the previous removal of 0.87 acres from the southern boundary of the LAMIRD adopted in 2018.  A final decision on this amendment is anticipated in November 2019.

The Comprehensive Plan influences the future of our communities – you are encouraged to participate!

The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners will receive oral and written testimony during a public hearing on October 28, 2019 at 5:30 PM in the Commission Chambers on the 3rd Floor of the Kitsap County Administration Building (619 Division St, Port Orchard).

What is the Comprehensive Plan?

The Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan describes the 20-year vision for unincorporated Kitsap County and how that vision will be achieved.  The plan covers land use, economic development, environment, housing and human services, transportation, capital facilities and utilities as well as parks, recreation, and open space.  The Comprehensive Plan is mandated by the Washington State Growth Management Act (RCW 36.70A).

How often does the Comprehensive Plan get changed?

Major Comprehensive Plan updates are mandated by the state every 8-years. The last major update of the Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2016.  Between major updates, the County may choose to consider minor amendments to the Comprehensive Plan on an annual basis.  Other amendments, such as to resolve an appeal, can be processed at any time.
