The Port Orchard City Council and the city’s Planning Commission will conduct two special joint meeting to discuss the 2016 Comprehensive Plan Update.
The meeting at set for 7 p.m. on April 15 and April 23, at City Hall Robert Geiger Council Chambers, 216 Prospect St.
Development Director Nick Bond said the first meeting will be to present progress to date on the Comprehensive Plan and to provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions, and for the council and Planning Commission to hear any questions while together.
“The second meeting will be more of a joint work-study where the Planning Commission can hear from the council first hand and consider council input as they review the plan,” said Bond.
Bond said the next steps for the Comprehensive Plan process relate to the preparation of technical documents including the water and sewer element, the Critical Areas element, and the Transportation elements.
“We have consultants working on these documents and should have them to the Planning Commission for review later this summer,” Bond added.
The draft introduction, Land Use & Housing, and Economic Development Elements, which are to be discussed, can be viewed online at www.cityofportorchard.us/2016-comp-plan-update or at the front counter of the Department of Community Development at City Hall.
