City asking for citizen input on McCormick development

New document to be an offshoot of 2003 county plan

PORT ORCHARD — The City of Port Orchard is asking citizens to participate in developing a planning document that will guide the long-range development of a McCormick area urban village of residential and commercial, retail and service businesses.

Officials said the development plan for this growing area will work in conjunction with a long-range plan for the McCormick Woods, West and North areas, known as the ULID6 Subarea Plan, which was completed by Kitsap County in 2003 prior to the area’s annexation by the City of Port Orchard.

In a statement posted on social media, city officials stated that “Consistent with the initial plan, the City seeks to work with the community in concert with McCormick Communities, LLC, to develop a planning document that will guide the project. We encourage citizens to participate by completing the following survey to provide input on desired services, amenities, and residential preferences.”

Officials said the survey will be open for comment through May 31 at
