Due to the increased volume of permit applications and the increased amount of development within the City Limits our workload has significantly increased. We do not have a definite time frame of when the permits will be ready for issuance. Plans are reviewed in the order they are received and the plans examiners are reviewing as quickly as they can. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
We work with all members of the community to make Bremerton a place of social, economic, and physical health by providing collaborative planning processes and responsive development services to achieve our community's desired future.
