Starting a new month, which means another go-round of meetings. Here’s what’s slated for this week:

Kitsap County Board of Commissioners (meet at 619 Division Street)

Monday, May 3

10 a.m.: The board will be in executive session until 11 a.m. to discuss the performance of a public employee. The open part of the meeting will kick off with the approval of minutes, following by information sharing and then board review of calendars and agendas. Meeting should adjourn around noon. (Sounds like there won’t be much information to share this time around…)

2 p.m.: Following minute approvals the meeting will get started with an hour-long legislative debrief from Tom McBride; Eric Baker (special projects manager) will follow up with his 15-minute economic stimulus update; then Angie Silva (also a special projects planner) will discuss a Port Orchard stormwater inter-local agreement for roughly 30 minutes; the board will consider a resolution authorizing the condemnation of private land and adjourn shortly after 4 p.m.

Wednesday, May 5

8:30 a.m.: After approving minutes the board will review the agenda for its May 10 regular meeting (this usually takes about an hour); they’ll do information sharing from roughly 9:20 to 10:05; then hear from Maxine Schoales about open space classification and forest land classification for the next hour. Shortly after 11 a.m. they’ll take a five minute break, then discuss planning commission rules of procedure with DCD planner Scott Diener for 20 minutes. The meeting will end with the board recessing into executive session at 11:30 a.m. until noon to discuss real estate matters.

The council has no general business items for the night, but its public hearing docket is as follows: public hearing and release of easements to Harrison Medical Center; public hearing and ordinance amending Bremerton Municipal Code Title 20 of the zoning code related to the comprehensive plan/zoning code consistency and community facilities; a proposed public hearing and resolution adopting the 2011 CDBG/Home Policy Plan.

Tuesday, May 4

1 p.m.: The meeting will likely immediately recess into executive session following approval of the consent agenda. The session will be closed to discuss real estate and potential litigation. The meeting will reopen with reports from the organization’s executive director Tony Caldwell, as well as update reports from the organization’s management team; the relocation of the agency to the Norm Dicks Government Center is next (although last time they didn’t say much here because they already discussed it in executive session); and the meeting will end with an update from Kitsap County on the status of KCCHA properties listed for sale. Adjournment should happen around 3:30 p.m.

Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council (meet in main chambers of Norm Dicks Government Center, 345 6th Street)

8 a.m.: The meeting will start with a study session looking at projections of population / housing units and distributions from the state’s Office of Financial Management. The regular meeting will begin at 9 a.m. with citizen comments.

On the agenda: a public hearing on the Community Development Block Grant Program regarding the 2011 application and policy plan; the work program report includes an update on the revenue-sharing/Urban Growth Area discussion (Read the story about a meeting of the minds on this between Port Orchard and Kitsap County here); followed by a report on transportation that is scheduled to take 40 minutes — the report includes recommendations from TransPOL on 2009 “left over” ARRA funding, PSRC rural corridors program project applications; it also includes information on non-motorized facilities and recommendations from the ad-hoc trails committee and information on the project selection process to receive transportation enhancement funds for FFY 2010-11; the next work program report is on city and county roles and a report from the Kitsap Economic Development Alliance/Kitsap County Community Development Corporation.

After all that the member agency’s will be able to give their comments, citizens may or may not get the chance to comment again (agenda says “as time permits”) and adjournment should fall around 11 a.m.

Alright folks, my brain is mush after translating/transcribing all those meeting agendas, so I’m signing off. Hope I didn’t miss anyone and I can’t wait to do it all over again next Monday morning. See ya then. Au Revoir.
