Kitsap County and the Port of Silverdale are each planning several projects within the Old Town Silverdale area. Kitsap County Public Works is planning to improve the function and look of the pump station adjacent to the Silverdale Waterfront Park and Port Properties. The Port of Silverdale is updating its Comprehensive Plan. The County and Port are working together to solicit perspectives on what people would like to see their Old Town Silverdale waterfront look like far into the future.
