Planning Commission Endorses Manchester Design Standards

The Kitsap County Planning Commission has given its seal of approval to design standards for future development in Manchester. The decision brings a revision of the 2002 Manchester Community Plan (Manchester Sub-area Plan) one step closer to completion. The plan must be approved by the county’s Board of Commissioners. Some planning commission members criticized the design standards for being too restrictive on developers, and the final vote was 5 to 3 (Lary Coppola was absent). On Sept. 11, the commission upheld a 28-foot limit on building heights. Both actions favor a guarded approach to development in the waterfront town.
