Bainbridge Island accepting comp plan changes

The city of Bainbridge Island is preparing to take a good look at its comprehensive plan and is asking the community to weigh in.

The city’s comprehensive plan is the island’s guide for handling growth and development over a 20-year time span, and is aimed at protecting the unique character of Bainbridge. It includes chapters of policies on land use, housing, transportation, utilities and other topics.

The public has been invited to submit proposed amendments to the comprehensive plan in January-February 2013.

A pre-application conference with city officials is required to submit an amendment.
