The purpose of the following Design Standards is to help implement the physical aspects of the Kingston community vision for downtown areas that evolved out of the Kingston Community Design Study developed in 1993. These standards are intended to promote Kingston’s small town character and support local economic vitality while accommodating the impact of existing regional transportation and tourism issues. The intent is not only to provide some assurance to the community of basic conformity to the vision statement but also to encourage creativity.
Typically projects are designed from the requirements of Kitsap
County Code, Title 17 Zoning (Title 17.420.050) and the Urban Village Center design criteria, however
since your parcel falls within one of Kitsap County’s design districts you will
also need to follow the KIngston standards.
If there is a
conflict in requirements the more restrictive will apply.
