Are you interested in the look of future development on the Island? If so, please get involved in the discussion on design guidelines.
The City of Bainbridge Island is seeking input to update its design guidelines to improve the quality of design in the community and support the vision for Bainbridge Island as a sustainable and thriving place.
The City's design guidelines are a method of guiding development and enhancing the quality of buildings, sites and the public realm. Some of the guidelines include: streetscape design, public space (plazas and courtyards), and building design (proximity to street, materials, roof appearance, etc.). The core purpose of design guidelines is to produce higher-quality development that reflects the Island's values and character. The design guidelines are used by the Design Review Board to assess the merits of a project's design.
As part of the project, a public meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30 at City Hall. The purpose of this meeting is to gather public input and present findings of the existing conditions analysis, best practices, and opportunities for the design guidelines update.
