I have read with great interest about the various plans Jon Rose and OPG have for Kitsap County. I believe Rose’s vision is based only on the profitability of his corporation, not the well being of the residents of Kitsap County, nor the long term economic viability of the Native Americans that depend upon the health of the environment.

I am stunned. I find it amazing that the leadership of our great city of Poulsbo has postponed the annexation of property located in the urban growth area again. If the urban grown areas were some new concept, sure, I would understand. That is not the case. Urban growth areas have been around for more than 14 years. They were virtually dictated to us back in the 90s by the state. The grand plan then was to locate all the new growth in and around the existing cities. Almost all the property outside of those areas was down-zoned to one unit per five acres. In some cases they were down-zoned to one unit per 20 acres.

Since the conception of the Growth Management Act, our mini-governments have had their hands full. Citizens have to realize that the same city staff that handles your annexations also handle the aftermath.

The Kitsap County Commissioners are elected to act on behalf of the citizens of this county. They have relegated their responsibilities to an unelected layer of quasi government, the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC). Yes, they are elected and have the authority to govern for the people residing in Kitsap County. They should not give their power to PSRC.

Recently, NKSD announced Capital Program Public Meetings, as they have $1.2 million left from the 2000 capital facilities improvement. First, when did North Kitsap High School’s renovations reach completion? I drop my daughter off everyday and there is only the 1st phase currently looking as if it might be completed by the end of summer (the library and one of the classroom hallways). There is much left to do. Why would we be considering what to do with the $1.2 million “leftover” when we have not even finished NKHS yet? I sat through many board meetings where change orders were being submitted and the School Board had to approve more funds.
