The Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council
(KRCC) is the local council of governments
for Kitsap County.

Its members are:

  • Kitsap County

  • Port of Bremerton
  • Kitsap Transit (non-voting)
  • Suquamish and Port Gamble/S'Klallam Tribes (non-voting)
  • Naval Base Kitsap (non-voting)

The Regional Council facilitates dialogue among its member agencies in the areas of land use, transportation, and growth planning. The Council is responsible for the Kitsap Countywide Planning Policy required by the WA State Growth Management Act; for allocating federal and state funding for transportation; and for information sharing and collaborative action on a wide range of regional issues.

The Council's Collaborative Strategies Program reaches beyond its member agencies to school, fire, transit, water, sewer, library, and other districts to discover efficiencies and better ways to provide services to Kitsap residents.
