2024 Comprehensive Plan Periodic Update


The City of Port Orchard is commencing its required 2024 periodic update to the City's Comprehensive Plan. The City is envisioning a light refresh to its existing plan addressing new Growth Management Act (GMA) requirements, Vision 2050, and updated Countywide Planning Policies. Much of the work to update the Comprehensive Plan will focus on new planning requirements including but not limited to climate, equity, and housing affordability.

The City of Port Orchard proposes to prepare its 2024 periodic update to the Comprehensive Plan, a housing action plan, a subarea plan, an update to the critical areas code for best available science, and updates to development regulations to implement these plans.

Every eight years, as required by the GMA, cities are required to update their Comprehensive Plan. Port Orchard’s last major update was conducted in 2016. The process of this update is expected to take about two years to complete.

The first step in updating our Comprehensive Plan will be the development of a public participation plan to gain feedback on what is important to the community to address in the update. Public outreach will begin in late Summer, early Fall of 2022. All work on the Comprehensive Plan periodic update will be done ensuring thorough and continuous public participation and outreach.
