PORT ORCHARD — It’s no joke — beginning on April 1, all Kitsap County Community Development applications must be submitted through the county’s online permit center.
According to the Department of Community Development, the change means there’s no need for more paper forms, driving to Port Orchard or waiting. The permits can be applied for online at www.kitsapgov.com/dcd/Pages/onlineapp.aspx.
Those who might have questions about the new process can call for help at 360-337-5777 or email at email@example.com. The Community Development office has a self-service kiosk in the permit center lobby at 619 Division St. in Port Orchard. It also has a permit technician who can walk you through your first online submittal.
Five in-person live demonstrations will take place in the commissioners’ chambers on Thursday, March 29, from 12-1 p.m.; Wednesday, April 4, from 9-10 a.m.; Friday, April 20, from 11 a.m. to noon; and Tuesday, April 24, 5-6 p.m.
