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 30-day comment period on the Draft EIS from September 17, 2019 to 5 p.m. October 18, 2019. All responses to comments, clarifications and corrections will be included in and considered for the Final EIS and analysis of the Preferred Alternative.

Bridletree Neighborhood Designated as a "No-Shooting Area"

The Bridletree neighborhood requested a ‘no-shooting’ area designation as code allows (see KCC Sections 10.25.010 – 10.25.040 at No-Shooting Areas - County Code ).  The petition for the designation achieved a greater than 50% certification by the County Auditor’s Office and was approved by the Kitsap Board of County Commissioners by resolution on April 22, 2019.  On May 13, 2019 the Board approved the ordinance that designates Bridletree neighborhood as a no-shooting area to be identified in KCC 10.25.020.

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.
