Volunteers are needed to fill three positions on the steering committee for the Island Center Subarea planning process.

The city of Bainbridge Island’s Planning and Community Development Department is currently working on the subarea planning process for Island Center, and community involvement is essential, city officials note.

The steering committee includes representatives from residents and property owners in Island Center, as well as other island residents and business owners.

The steering committee was formed in November 2017 and members are working through the subarea planning process to address issues such as current and future land uses, natural resources, transportation, trails and other non-motorized facilities, utilities, and public facilities and amenities.

City officials said the result of a subarea planning process will be a subarea (or neighborhood) plan which will be incorporated into the comprehensive plan, the city’s 20-year plan that guides growth and development on the island.

Officials expect the Island Center Subarea planning process to continue for a year. Members of the steering committee meet at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of every month at Congregation Kol Shalom, located at 9010 Miller Road.

All meetings are open to the public, with opportunities for public comment.

Applications for the Island Center Subarea Planning Process Steering Committee can be found on the city’s website at www.bainbridge wa.gov, and applicants are due by 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7.

Committee interviews will take place in late September.
