PORT GAMBLE REDEVELOPMENT PLAN

Notice of Availability, Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Kitsap County is providing this public notice that the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Port Gamble Redevelopment Project: Performance-Based Development (PBD) is available for review and comment. The intent of the Draft EIS is to address potential impacts and mitigation at a project level, conducting an analysis of the elements of the natural environment, land use, aesthetics, historic resources, and traffic/transportation in the project area. The proposal includes three alternatives in the DEIS. 

Consistent with SEPA rules, the County is conducting a 45-day comment period on the Draft EIS from September 17, 2019 to 5 p.m. November 1, 2019. All responses to comments, clarifications, and corrections will be included in and considered for the Final EIS and analysis of the Preferred Alternative.


COME TO THE TABLE - 2019

Kitsap County needs your help to streamline the requirements for what can be built in your neighborhood and the process to obtain approval to build. Do you want to see a coffee shop or grocery store in your neighborhood? What about a factory or tavern next door to your home? Some things are compatible, some are not. We want to understand where you feel housing, businesses, and services should be built across the county.  Your feedback will help the Department of Community Development draft proposed changes for further review later this year.
