Manchester Plan Update: Public Hearing Set for Oct. 23

Katrina Knutson, the Kitsap County staff member who has been shepherding the update of the Manchester Plan, presented the proposed final draft to the county’s Planning Commission today. The commission will take public comment on the plan (your second to last chance) Oct. 23. The county commissioners are expected to vote on the plan before the end of 2007 (with one more public hearing before that board). The plan is the result of a year’s worth of work on the part of county planning staff and a citizens’ committee.

Here’s the notice about the meeting, and how to see a copy of the draft plan:

A public hearing on the proposed update of the Manchester Community Plan will be held before the Kitsap County Planning Commission at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23 in the county’s administration building, 614 Division St., Port Orchard.
