Transportation speeds to front of CKCC agenda

From county road updates to impeding projects such as additional traffic lights on Bucklin Hill Road and more stop signs in Old Town, a plethora of transportation issues will be discussed at tonight’s Central Kitsap Community Council meeting.

“Transportation seems to be one of the biggest concerns from citizens in Central Kitsap,” said Hank Mann-Sykes, CKCC president. “The county is doing a good job of paying attention to Central Kitsap in this instance.”

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Fire and Water Headquarters on Newberry Hill Road and the public is encouraged to attend.

“A status report is what I asked for and the opportunity for people to ask questions,” said Naomi Pursel, CKCC member.

Kitsap County Public Works employees Jon Brand, Dusty Wiley and Dave Smith are scheduled to provide information regarding county transportation projects. The CKCC also is hoping to have an update given by Gordon Roycroft of the Washington State Department of Transportation on the SR 3/303 interchange.

Additional stop signs in Old Town are one of many area projects that Mann-Sykes would like to see completed.

“Old Town is pedestrian-unfriendly right now and I hope the addition of stop signs will change that,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the attempt to make Silverdale a walkable community.”
