Do you want to have a say in whether the Kitsap Shoreline is developed or kept natural? You can affect what direction it goes by participating in the Shoreline Master Program update, which starts 17 Dec. 2020 (and then occur on the 3rd Thursday of each month).
From the Kitsap County Kitsap County Department of Community Development/DCD:
“Kitsap County is conducting a required periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) and we want to hear from you. To promote timely information sharing and transparency throughout the SMP periodic review process, the County will be hosting monthly project updates via Zoom Webinar now through Spring 2021.
“What will meetings cover?
Monthly project updates are a chance for you and other community members to learn about the SMP periodic review as it progresses and ask questions of staff. At the December project update, the County will provide an overview of the SMP periodic review timeline and process, highlight public engagement opportunities, and introduce the online open house.
“Meeting participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during a moderated community Q&A.
“Please note, comments on the Department’s draft proposal need to be submitted through the formal public comment process anticipated in February 2021 to be included in the record for consideration by the Kitsap County Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners.
Thursday | December 17, 2020 | 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
Meetings will take place the third Thursday of every month from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
