2018 Proposed Applications
Application No. P-10-30-17-01: Parks

This application includes two site-specific amendments to the City’s Land Use (Figure LU-1) and City’s Zoning Map. The request is to re-designate and rezone a:

  1. 2.68-acre property located at 20831 Bond Rd NE from Residential High to Park. These properties were recently acquired by the City of Poulsbo and will add to the Fish Park complex.
  2. 1.85-acre property located at 20523 Little Valley Rd from Residential Low to Park. This property was donated to the City of Poulsbo and is now home to Poulsbo Pump Track.
Application No. P-10-31-17-02: Anspach

This application includes both a site-specific amendment and a text amendment:

  1. The site-specific amendment request is to re-designate a .64- acre property located at 19589 Front St NE from Shoreline Residential to High Intensity. If the site-specific amendment is approved, a map amendment to Figure NE-6 (Shoreline Master Program Map) will be required. The request is being made due to an error in the initial adoption of the Shoreline Master Program.
  2. The request also includes a text amendment to Poulsbo Municipal Code 16.02.240 C.2., to alleviate inconsistences between the zoning designation and shoreline jurisdiction.
Application No. P-10-30-17-02: Capital Improvement Projects

This application includes a text amendment to Chapter 12, the Capital Facilities Plan, to update Table CFP-4 (the City of Poulsbo 6-Year Capital Improvement Projects) to reflect the proposed projects listed in the 2017-2022 Capital Improvement Projects.

The Growth Management Act (GMA) requires the City to develop and maintain a 6-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) as part of its comprehensive plan. The 2017-2022 CIP has been prepared to meet these requirements. Table CFP-4 is proposed to be updated to reflect funding priorities through the annual budget cycle, as well as any new projects added to the 6-year CIP.

Application No. P-11-18-17-01: Transportation Chapter

This application includes text amendments to Chapter 4, Transportation, to better integrate complete streets policy, non-motorized transportation goals, and regional transportation plans.
