The Invitation
You are invited to join the April Monthly Project Update Meeting this Thursday, April 15th, 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 hosts 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 that comments on the Department's draft proposal and subsequent Kitsap County Planning Commission recommendations need to be submitted through a formal public comment period to be included in the record for consideration prior to final action by the Kitsap County Board of County Commissioners.

During this month's meeting, the County will share their responses to public comments received during the 30-day comment period. The County will also provide an overview of upcoming work, including deliberations of the Kitsap County Planning Commission's proposed changes. Following approval of the Planning Commission's Findings of Fact and Recommendations, the Board of County Commissioners will host a second public hearing and opportunity to provide additional comments. Please sign-up for upcoming notices or visit the project website for upcoming public meetings and hearing dates.
