Keyport Community Begins Planning Study
KEYPORT, WA—Beginning in February 2007, Kitsap County Department
of Community Development staff, in conjunction with local citizens will
begin work on a planning study for Keyport, with the goal of preparing a
community plan. Keyport has preliminarily been identified by the County as a
candidate for a designated “limited area of more intensive rural
development”, or LAMIRD, which would recognize Keyport’s identity under the
Washington State Growth Management Act as a rural village with historical
boundaries while preventing urban-type sprawl.
The initial meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 13th,
2007, at the Keyport Bible Church located at 15270 Washington Ave NE,
Keyport, WA 98345. The meeting will include a discussion of the planning
process, community and planning background, community boundaries, and future
goals. Subcommittees may also be established in the future to study specific
issues. It is anticipated that a draft plan will be completed to be
submitted to the Board of County Commissioners by the end of 2007.
