What do you envision for our Island Center neighborhood? All islanders are invited to participate in the upcoming “Envision Island Center — A Community Kickoff” at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 18 in the Council Chamber at City Hall.
In this podcast we hear from Jennifer Sutton, senior planner for the City of Bainbridge, and Micah Strom, co-owner of Modern Collision Rebuild and Service, about this planning process.
Island Center is the neighborhood located at the crossroads of Miller and New Brooklyn Roads. It includes a gas station, auto repair shops, a community hall, Bainbridge Rental, Sawatdy Thai Cuisine and Bainbridge Gardens, and a variety of natural resources.
In 2017 the City Council identified Island Center subarea planning as a priority. 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.
Micah is part of the steering committee, which was appointed by the Council and has been meeting and gathering information. As part of the process, the committee is now looking for public participation.
There are many ways to get involved.
You can complete this short online survey to help identify priorities for the neighborhood center. The survey will be open until Sunday, July 15.
You can participate in the upcoming “Envision Island Center — A Community Kickoff” at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 18 in the Council Chamber at City Hall. All are invited to learn more about the planning process and contribute ideas. The discussion will include a presentation and time for questions.
