The City of Bremerton is considering updates to its Zoning Code in order to permit additional housing types. Proposed Zoning Code Amendments would ease current housing restrictions in order to promote the creation of affordable housing options in Bremerton. The City Council will be considering updating housing regulations including:
Cottage Housing – Allow for multiple small homes on a single lot within the Low Density and Medium Density Residential Zones.
Duplex & Townhomes – Permit these housing types within the Low Density Residential Zone, as long as maximum density requirements are met.
Density Bonus - Codify a State required density bonus for religious organizations providing affordable housing, and extend this entitlement to the Bremerton Housing Authority.
Please join us at the Public Hearing on September 21, 2022 at 5:30 PM. This meeting will be held virtually. Once information on how to participate is available, it will be posted online here.
