Zoning Use Table Update

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 in early 2020.


Your comments are encouraged!

A public comment period regarding the Department Recommended Draft

will open soon
