Featured Speaker: Kitsap County District 1 Commissioner Steve Bauer
Bauer first addressed the issue of the ferry reservation system, which has beendelayed for Kingston until at least 2015 while it is tried more extensively in the SanJuan Islands. He said that regardless of the state’s decision regarding the reservationsystem for Kingston he got the state to agree to keep the local advisory group activeand informed.Regarding the Kingston Downtown Master Plan, Bauer said he realizes it was abig effort on everyone’s part to create the plan and understands people’s frustrationwhen the plan got to the county commissioners and it didn’t pass muster.The commissioner expressed three points of concern about the plan: that all thecommunity know about it and embrace it, that a structure for installing and paying forany necessary stormwater system changes or upgrades be established, and that adistrict-wide solution to parking be addressed.KCAC members and audience members shared their thoughts and feelingsabout the process by which the Downtown Kingston Master Plan was created, theresources available, and the results.Bauer, the KCAC board, and the Kingston Downtown Master Plan committeemembers agreed to meet before the Feb. 3 KCAC meeting to begin to iron out theissues that forestalled complete approval of the plan.
