The Invitation
You are invited to join the March Monthly Project Update Meeting this Thursday, March 18th,
from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Kitsap County is conducting a required periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP), and we want to hear from you. To promote timely information sharing and transparency throughout the SMP periodic review process, the County will be hosting monthly project updates via Zoom Webinar through Spring 2021.

What We’ll Cover
Monthly project updates are a chance for you and other community members to learn about the SMP periodic review as it progresses and ask project staff questions as part of a moderated community Q&A.

Please note, comments on the Department’s draft proposal need to be submitted through the formal public comment process to be included in the record for consideration by the Kitsap County Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners.During this month’s meeting, the County will provide an update on work with the Kitsap Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners following the closure of the SMP public comment period on March 3, 2021.

The work includes the County’s review and consideration of public comments, a briefing with the Board of County Commissioners, and preparation for two Planning Commission deliberation meetings scheduled for March 16 and April 6, 2021.
