In all permit-related decisions, the Official Kitsap County Code governs.
The intent of the low-intensity commercial zoning is to promote mixed uses – retail, hotel, office, services, or attached residential in horizontal or small-scale vertical patterns – and commercial uses designed to maximize shoreline views and allow streamside and shoreline public access where appropriate. A new development pattern reduces impervious surfaces, promotes marine waterfront and creek restoration, promotes landscape and streetscape improvements, promotes pedestrian safety and comfort, and improves vehicular access.
A. Mixed use development patterns will be focused west of SR 3, while commercial development will be focused in areas east of SR 3 along Sinclair Inlet, both areas having smaller impervious footprints interspersed by trails, parks, and habitat.
B. Additional requirements for development within the LIC zone may be included in Chapter 17.400.
