Silverdale incorporation election expected this summer

Citizens United for Silverdale, the committee supporting Silverdale cityhood, filed a Notice of Intention with the Boundary Review Board last month and the next steps will be for the board to hold a public hearing on the incorporation effort.

Initial discussions revolved around a spring ballot measure to go to voters, the committee is now planning for an August election, Marcus Hoffman, committee spokesman said Tuesday.

Once the committee’s Notice of Intention is considered sufficient, a date for the public hearing will be set, said Carolyn Gourley, the review board’s chief clerk. She said Tuesday that she is waiting for a few corrections to the notice.

“Chances are, the hearing won’t be this month, could be next month,” she said.

Hoffman said the committee continues to give presentations on the benefits of Silverdale incorporation to different groups.

“We want people to contact us to present to their group. It doesn’t have to be a political group, but most member should live in Silverdale,” he said.

For more information or to arrange for a group presentation, Hoffman can be reached at (360) 308-2233.
