The community of Bainbridge Island is invited to participate in an online survey to help identify priorities for the future of Island Center.
The City of Bainbridge Island and the Island Center Subarea Planning Process Steering Committee, made up mostly of people who live and work in or nearby Island Center, want to know how you think and feel about the future of this neighborhood center, located at the crossroads of Miller and New Brooklyn Roads near a gas station, auto repair shops, Bainbridge Rental, Sawatdy Thai Cuisine and Bainbridge Gardens, among others.
The Island Center Neighborhood Center is a “designated center” with goals and policies in the Comprehensive Plan supporting a subarea planning process, which allows for more detailed planning and community involvement in a much smaller geographical area within the City.
The subarea planning process recognizes the special characteristics of Island Center and will examine:
- Place and identity
- Business and economy
- Natural resources, and more.
In 2017, the City Council identified Island Center subarea planning as a priority. The Council then appointed a steering committee, which has been meeting and gathering information. As part of the process, the committee is now looking for public participation. Please take a few minutes to complete the five-question survey to help us begin identifying priorities for this neighborhood center. The online survey is open until Sunday, July 15.
In addition to the online survey, please join us for “Envision Island Center – A Community Kickoff” on Monday, June 18 to learn more about the planning process and to contribute ideas. The discussion will include a presentation and have time for questions and answers. The June 18 event will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber at City Hall.
