City Hall extends comp plan deadline

Port Orchard residents now have additional two weeks to apply for changes to the city’s 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 it’s 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 property’s 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 city’s Downtown Overlay District, since the concept is already referenced in today’s docu-ment.

Long-Woods said the plan is need of minor adjustments because it has not been updated since around 2003.
