The purpose of design standards is to guide the general character and the look and feel of a designated area, this includes: structures, landscaping, signage, etc. Standards are baseline requirements for the design of development projects. Some guidelines are recommendations that are intended to further define the desired character of development within the districts.
Typically projects are designed from the requirements of Kitsap County Code, Title 17 Zoning (Title 17.420.050) however since your parcel falls within one of Kitsap County’s design districts you will also need to follow the standards shown below. If there is a conflict in requirements the more restrictive will apply.
Kitsap Mall is a regional shopping center with an enclosed pedestrian concourse and significant open space in the form of surface parking lots adjacent to the mall. The center borders the west edge of Silverdale Way for approximately 1,200 feet, presenting an opportunity for future building and landscape design that can relate directly to Silverdale Way and Clear Creek Village.
Kitsap Mall Center will continue to be a regional shopping center with expanded functions to include office, retail, residential and a transit hub. Kitsap Mall itself will expand as a mixed-use center, connecting its pedestrian concourse with Silverdale Way, Kitsap Mall Boulevard, and Randall Way NW at a minimum. Infill development will relate building activities and orientation to both the expanded interior/exterior pedestrian concourse and to Silverdale Way. The southern and eastern portions of the mall site will contain landscaping and pedestrian features that physically and visually connect the mall to Silverdale Way and the greater downtown Silverdale area to the south and southeast, providing significant private/public community gathering places.
