Your partner in building safe, resilient, and sustainable Kitsap County communities!
Kitsap County Department of Community Development (DCD) partners with residential and commercial customers to provide guidance and assistance through the design, building, and project review process. In each of the efforts, we are committed to ensuring our residents' safety, facilitating the construction of reliable and sustainable communities, and preserving our county's uniquely beautiful natural resources.
DCD is results-driven, continually evaluating what we do and how we do it through a prism of process improvement. We are committed to fulfilling our stewardship responsibilities to the people, communities, lands, and waterways of Kitsap County in the most effective and forward-thinking means possible.
In addition to helping our citizens and stakeholders navigate land-use and building code guidelines, DCD also strives to engage those we serve in meaningful and useful ways. Open comment periods surrounding community planning & zoning updates, customer service surveys, focus groups, and advisory groups are examples of this ongoing effort.
