Agriculture code proposal Open House and Planning Commission hearing set for July 7

(Port Orchard, WA)   Kitsap County's Department of Community Development is holding a Public Open House regarding a proposed agricultural code on July 7, 2015 at 4:15 pm in the Commissioners Chambers of the Kitsap County Administration Building (619 Division Street, Port Orchard).

Local agricultural interests and county planners developed preliminary draft agriculture code which addresses primary, accessory agricultural uses, and agritourism. The purpose of the proposed code is to support agricultural interests while balancing agricultural uses with other rural and urban land uses in Kitsap County.

Following the open house, the Kitsap County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed code on July 7, 2015 at 5:30 pm located in the Commissioners Chambers in the Kitsap County Administration Building.

Written and verbal public comments are encouraged and will be accepted during the Planning Commission through the public hearing process. The Board of County Commissioners will also receive public review and comments once the Planning Commission forwards their final recommendations. The code is accessible here:
