Kitsap County is required to adopt and continually review a
Comprehensive Plan under the state Growth Management Act (RCW 36.70A). Major Comprehensive Plan updates are mandated by the state every 8-years (formerly every 10-years), which require a complete review of the Comprehensive Plan and implementing development regulations and may result in significant changes to the Comprehensive Plan. The last major update of the Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2016.
This page provides an archive of all the major updates to the Kitsap County Comprehensive Plans since the Growth Management Act was adopted in 1990.
In-between major updates, through an annual amendment process, the Board of County Commissioners may choose to consider adjustments or additions to the Comprehensive Plan that are consistent with the existing Comprehensive Plan. Annual amendments will be added to this archive soon.
