City Hall extends comp plan deadline
June 12, 2008 · Updated 9:39 AM
Port Orchard residents now have additional two weeks to apply for changes to the citys comprehensive plan.
Joanne Long-Woods, city
planner, extended the deadline due to the busy beginning of summer.
We wanted to catch everyone and we know that its the beginning of vacation time, Long-Woods said.
Residents are able to
make applications request-ing changes over matters such as parcel zoning.
Long-Woods said that often a propertys designated zone does not match the comprehensive plan.
The city will also submit a number of changes to the comprehensive plan, including minor updates to the capital facilities.
The previous plan did not include the current changes to the marquee, and those will also be updated.
The plan will not need to include new information about the citys Downtown Overlay District, since the concept is already referenced in todays docu-ment.
Long-Woods said the plan is need of minor adjustments because it has not been updated since around 2003.
