PSIC Planned Action Ordinance
Puget Sound Industrial Center Planned Action
Modified SEPA Environmental Checklist
urpose of checklist:
On August 1,
2012, the City of Bremerton adopted Ordinance 5189, establishing a planned action designation for the Puget Sound Industrial Center (PSIC)
Subarea (formerly the South Kitsap Industrial Area (SKIA)), pursuant to the State Environmental Policy Act. Environmental review for the PSIC Subarea Plan
was conducted through preparation of a Planned Action EIS (Draft EIS dated June 9, 2011 and Final EIS dated March 29, 2012).
WAC 197-11-172 establishes the procedures for project-level review within the planned action area, stating that “Review of a project proposed as a planned
action is intended to be simpler and more focused than for other projects.” Verification that probable significant impacts of the proposed project have been
adequately addressed in
the EIS is established through review of an environmental checklist. The Second Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill (2ESSB) 6406, as
adopted during the 2012 Washington State legislative session, establishes that a city may utilize a modified checklist to determine consistency with a
planned action ordinance. The City of Bremerton has adopted this modified checklist as part of the PSIC planned action ordinance.
Instructions for applicants:
environmental checklist asks you to describe basic information about your proposal. Answer the questions briefly, with the most precise information
known, or give the best description you can. You must answer each question accurately and carefully, to the best of your knowledge. In most cases, you
should be able to answer the questions from your own observations, project plans, or the PSIC Subarea EIS without the need to hire experts. If you do not
know the answer, or if a question does not apply to your proposal, write “do not know” or “does not apply.” Staff will review and comment on specific items of
this checklist, as appropriate.
Questions about environmental elements that were analyzed in the SKIA/PSIC Subarea Plan EIS ask for confirmation as to whether the proposed project is
consistent with analysis in the EIS. In order to respond to these questions, the EIS is available online at www.sustainableskia.com or at Bremerton City Hall, 345
Street, Suite 600, Bremerton.
