Kitsap County Regional Coordinating Council

Revenue Sharing, Urban Growth Boundaries and Employment Allocation Project

BERK worked with the Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council, in partnership with Kitsap County and the cities of Bremerton, Poulsbo, and Port Orchard to review and analyze urban service delivery challenges for unassociated urban growth areas (UGAs) within the county. A collaborative process among project partner resulted in two reports.

An Association Analysis Template Report provides guidance on how to analyze and understand urban service delivery challenges for unassociated UGAs and fiscal implications to respective jurisdictions. The Central Kitsap UGA Association Analysis used an unassociated UGA north of Bremerton and south of Silverdale as a pilot study area to test and refine the template.
