Bicycle and Electric Vehicle Code

Bicycle and Electric Vehicle Code 2022

About the Project

The Kitsap County Community Development Department has developed revisions to Kitsap County Code Chapter 17.490 Off-Street Parking and Loading to encourage and require new development and applicable redevelopment to install facilities for bicycle parking and electric vehicle charging. This

The project scope includes: 
• Guidance for bicycle parking for new construction and applicable redevelopment in urban areas, Rural Commercial and Industrial zones, and LAMIRDs only, and for electric vehicle charging stations throughout the County
• Establish minimum standards and encourage provision of additional facilities with incentives 
• Establish location, dimension, material, design, numeric, and other standards 
• Revise/add applicable definitions as needed in 17.110

The objectives of the Bicycle and Electric Vehicle Code Update include:
• Increase non-motorized and low/no emission transportation options
• Improve public health outcomes via cleaner air and active transportation
• Reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions and help support Puget Sound Regional Council Vision 2050, Countywide Planning Policies, Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan, and Kitsap County Climate Change Resiliency Assessment goals and outcomes
