DCD Review Team Meetings

Due to a significant influx of permit applications, responses to requests 
for staff review meetings may take longer than normal.

DCD staff members assist applicants in processing and evaluating their permit applications. They each serve a unique role in the permit application review process. DCD staff members are available virtually and through in-person meetings in the lobby. 

Please Note: Information and guidance are advisory only and based on the customer's information. This is not intended to be an exhaustive review of all potential issues. Any discussion or information provided shall not bind or prohibit the County's future implementation or enforcement of all applicable laws and regulations. No statements or assurances made by County representatives shall relieve the applicant of their duty to submit an application consistent with all relevant requirements of county, state, and federal codes, laws, regulations, land use plans, and other requirements.

Paid Meeting Options

Staff Consultation (Residential Only)  

A by-appointment, 30-minute consultation meeting with a cross-functional mix of DCD Review Team members to help you identify potential requirements for developing a single residential parcel. Review Team members provide general advice on your proposed project and possible requirements. A bulleted list of comments shared during the meeting is noted and provided to the applicant. Examples of projects for this meeting type include: residential projects; development of a vacant residential parcel with a single-family residence or duplex, an accessory structure or outbuilding on a residential parcel, or an attached/detached accessory dwelling unit.

Hourly Meeting 

A by-appointment meeting to focus on a specific area of Kitsap County Code or project conditions. You select which DCD Review Team disciplines will attend and they will research your questions or project in advance. Each staff charges time by the quarter hour (1 hour total minimum). Meeting notes are taken by the applicant. Examples of projects for this meeting type include: development of a multi-family dwelling unit(s), a commercial/industrial development, other complex residential projects.

Pre-Application Meeting 

A by-appointment meeting with DCD Review Team members to provide a detailed analysis of your proposed project or issue. Review Team Members will review the proposed project (including before the meeting), and a detailed meeting summary letter is provided to the customer soon after the meeting, targeting a response within a couple weeks. Examples include large developments of multi-family dwelling unit(s), commercial/industrial development, other complex projects. New dock or mooring projects require a Pre-Application Meeting. 

 A request for paid meeting options requires payment to be made along with the request.
