Community Planning

The Community Planning Team guides the development of the County’s 20-year Comprehensive Plan and development regulations to set the stage for future growth, development, and quality of life in Kitsap County. They work to ensure that all elements of the built environment, including land use, transportation, housing, energy, and infrastructure, work together to provide sustainable places for living, working, and recreation.

Buildable Land Program

The Buildable Lands Report is a "look back" to review consistency between actual and planned densities.  It answers if development is occurring as envisioned by the Comprehensive Plan and if there is sufficient land supply for population and employment growths.
