Meeting on sex offender housing set for Dec. 13 in Poulsbo

A community meeting at Poulsbo City Hall has been scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 13 at 6:30 p.m. to address public safety concerns related to group housing for level-three sex offenders in the 17000 block of Poulsbo’s Viking Way.

Kitsap County Commissioner Rob Gelder and Rep. Sherry Appleton (D-Poulsbo) are expected to be present for the meeting as well as representatives from the Washington State Department of Corrections, Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Kitsap County Department of Community Development, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and West Sound Support Services — the contracted business operating the group home.

During a Walk and Talk event in Poulsbo on Saturday, Dec. 1, Commissioner Gelder was met by a group of some 50 concerned citizens, many of whom voiced their opposition to the possibility of more offenders being relocated from the McNeil Island Special Commitment Center to the group home on Viking Way.
