Boundary Review Board recommends against Silverdale incorporation

PORT ORCHARD — Silverdale should not incorporate, at least not right now. That was the recommendation from the county’s Boundary Review Board at a meeting Thursday night where members reviewed a proposal to incorporate the county’s retail hub.

The board voted 3 to 1 in favor of the recommendation. Regardless of the board’s decision, the proposal to incorporate will go before voters likely in February. Ultimately it will be up to the people living within the proposed boundaries to decide if Silverdale becomes a city. The incorporation proposal met most of the criteria required by state law, but the majority of the review board said it couldn’t recommend supporting the effort because of the public testimony it received.

  1. CUFS followed all the procedures to the letter. We bent over backwards to work with Kitsap County, as they changed the UGA boundaries and various people who objected to the effort to allow the local people to determine their own future. The citizens in Silverdale will get to determine what they want to do with their city and the future of their community. Local accountability and control will be on the ballot February 2013 for those who live in Silverdale.
