The Port Orchard City Council adopted design standards for new and modified single family residences, duplexes, and residential fences on June 27, 2017. The standards will be effective on September 1, 2017. The Council worked with the Planning Commission and City staff for approximately 8 months to create these standards, which are intended to promote the development of high-quality and attractive residential neighborhoods as the City continues to grow. Public input was solicited during this time, and a public hearing was held by the Planning Commission in April 2017.
