Applications open for Planning Commission and other Kitsap advisory boards

(Port Orchard, WA) - With a new year comes New Year’s Resolutions. Resolve to get more involved in your neighborhood, community or county in 2016. Kitsap County advisory groups provide an opportunity to have a say in how local parks, programs, transportation and development are funded, developed and reviewed for local citizens. Broad and diverse public input is vital in county government as is the talent, experience, skills and knowledge that advisory group members contribute to improve services and help Commissioners and staff make decisions.

Applications are being accepted for 2016 vacancies on the following advisory groups: Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council; Central Kitsap Community Council (youth representative); Developmental Disabilities Advisory Board; Ferry Advisory Committees (Bremerton, Bainbridge Island, Southworth); Manchester Citizens Advisory Committee; Noxious Weed Control Board (Bremerton, North Kitsap); Planning Commission (Districts 1 and 3 – north and central Kitsap); Suquamish Citizens Advisory Committee; and the Veterans Advisory Board.

For an online application and more information, go to or contact Kitsap County Volunteer Services at 360.337.4650 or .
