The City of Bremerton Department of Community Development proposes to perform a city-wide periodic update of the Bremerton Comprehensive Plan as required by the Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA). The Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year vision and roadmap for Bremerton’s future. The plan guides City decisions on where to locate new jobs and residences, how to improve our transportation system, and where to make capital investments such as utilities, sidewalks, and parks.

An environmental impact statement is required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c) and will be prepared. The EIS will evaluate a no-action alternative and three different planning alternatives. The three alternatives will evaluate geographical areas that will absorb forecasted population growth, those alternatives include: 1) Existing Centers (Downtown, Wheaton Way, Charleston, etc.) and other existing higher density zones, 2) the Low Density Residential zone, 3) A city-wide increase to density in all zones. DEADLINE FOR COMMENTS: JANUARY 27, 2023. Agencies, affected tribes, and members of the public are invited to comment on the scope of the EIS.
