Please note that the Kitsap County Department of Community Development has postponed updating parking area requirements to allow for additional public engagement and to develop additional alternatives.
The Kitsap County Community Development Department is developing revisions to Kitsap County Code Chapter 17.490 Off-Street Parking and Loading to encourage and require new development and applicable redevelopment to install facilities for bicycle parking and electric vehicle charging. This project builds on suggested changes for bicycle parking presented by the Kitsap County Non-Motorized Facilities Committee in early 2021.

Program and Project Information
This update was postponed due to Covid-19 and will resume during the Comprehensive Plan Code Update for 2024.
In late December 2018, the Kitsap County Department of Community Development introduced draft changes to Kitsap County Code (KCC) Chapter 18.16 Timber Harvest. The proposed changes will enable Kitsap County to assume sole regulatory authority from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) over Class IV-General Forest Practices in accordance with RCW 76.09. Assumption of authority through permitting and enforcement will help to ensure forest practices in the County adhere to the requirements of the Forest Practices Act, the State Environmental Policy Act, and implement the County Comprehensive Plan. Additionally, the program will streamline permitting and monitoring practices.
