Review continues on proposed shopping center

The Bainbridge Island Planning Commission will continue its review of the controversial shopping center that’s planned near Highway 305 and High School Road at the commission’s meeting this week.

Commissioners began their review of the site plan for the Visconsi project earlier this month.

The Visconsi proposal includes a 61,890-square-foot shopping center on a little more than 8 acres of land directly across from the McDonald’s on High School Road. The center would include 261 parking lots, a medical center and a Bartell Drugs store. The project has been opposed by many islanders who are worried about more traffic and other impacts from the development.

The Planning Commission will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 at Bainbridge Island City Hall.
