Central Kitsap Community Council – “Our Voice in Kitsap County”

I don’t know about you, but lately I feel like our elected officials in Washington DC have lost touch with their constituency. Our country has lost it’s sense of representative form of government and the voice of the common citizen falls on deaf ears.central-kitsap-community-council

Fortunately though, here in Central Kitsap, we do have a meaningful structure and process to bridge the communication gap between residents and local government.

The Central Kitsap Community Council is an advisory body created by the Board of County Commissioners through a resolution in 1998 and was tasked with the following purpose:

Facilitate and improve communication among the Central Kitsap community and the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC)

Promote a sense of community

Advise the BOCC and government agencies of the desires and concerns of the community

Bring to the Central Kitsap community issues and projects of the County and convey the community response as requested by the BOCC.

The Central Kitsap Community Council (CKCC) exists to represent the citizens of Central Kitsap (defined as those living within the Central Kitsap School District boundaries, but excluding land within the City of Bremerton).

The charge given to CKCC is to review and make recommendations on growth management issues such as land use and zoning, public utility service delivery, transportation improvements, parks and recreation, design standards, public safety, taxes and fees, environmental protection, and other related matters.

The CKCC meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Water District Office at Dickey and Newberry Hill roads from 7:00pm – 9:00pm, except for April and October Town Hall meetings.

The next meeting is January 20th.
