About the Ruby Creek Project

The City of Port Orchard is working on a subarea plan for the area located near the intersection of Sidney Road SW and SW Sedgwick Road, which had been known as the “Sidney/Sedgwick Center”.  The new name “Ruby Creek Neighborhood Center” was selected to highlight this significant environmental feature located in the neighborhood.  Its boundaries are generally SR-16/Blackjack Creek to the east, Birch Road to the north, the City limits to the south, and a critical area (wetland) complex to the west.  The Ruby Creek Neighborhood is approximately 166 acres in land area, and contains areas zoned for commercial, mixed-use (commercial and residential), and greenbelt uses. Currently, the neighborhood contains 464 residents in 232 apartments and 8 houses, and provides 371 jobs in approximately 213,638 existing square feet of commercial space.

Residents will be able to walk and bicycle to the neighborhood grocery store, restaurants, and businesses providing other goods and services, as well as to Sidney Glen Elementary School and Cedar Heights Middle School.  The Ruby Creek central business district will consist of walkable shopfronts along Sidney Ave SW.  Natural environmental features and park and recreation amenities along Ruby Creek and Blackjack Creek, along with this central business district, will form the heart of the neighborhood.  At buildout, it is estimated that the neighborhood will contain approximately 1,800 residents and 652 jobs. The draft plan includes the current and proposed status of the Ruby Creek Neighborhood, the proposed zoning and regulatory requirements for the subarea plan, and designs illustrating how a built-out Ruby Creek Neighborhood would look and function.
