MCC ~ Manchester Community Council

The Manchester Community Council (MCC) was a community group created in 2005 to serve as a liaison between the citizens of Manchester and the Kitsap County government.

The council took its origins from the Manchester Subarea Plan, a document designed and implemented in 2002 by the Kitsap County government and a volunteer group of 42 Manchester residents.

The Subarea Plan designates Manchester as a 'rural village,' and was created as a means of establishing legal guidelines for Manchester's "land use, densities, transportation, public facilities, public infrastructure, natural systems and open space."

This Plan was updated in 2007, as part of a joint effort between Kitsap County and the citizens onf Manchester. Having fulfilled it's mission, the MCC disbanded in 2010.

Visit the Kitsap County web site for complete details of the Manchester SubArea Plan.
