Subarea Plans

​​Subarea Plans

A subarea plan is a type of long range planning for a limited geographic area within a community.

These subarea plans focus on goals and policies to form the framework for the plan as well as specific goals and policies for land-use, environmental protection, and transportation.

These chapters are also available in the 2016 Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan located here.
