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.
The neighborhood as a whole has views to the eastern wooded slopes and Dyes Inlet and is bounded by Highway 3 to the west and north. A wooded slope runs north/south generally along the west side of Silverdale Way and Randall Way.
Currently, academic facilities share the hill with residential uses to the north of Strawberry Creek and Silverdale Loop Road. Medium density housing exists along the eastern edge and slope of the neighborhood.
The neighborhood's natural and physical features include Strawberry Creek and a forested ravine between Munson Street to the south, Silverdale Way on the west, Silverdale Loop Road on the north and Anderson Hill Road on the west.
