Quality Bainbridge was formed in the summer of 2013 by group of Island citizens who believed there was a need for an organization devoted to supporting the core values that so many of us Island residents share. You can read more about our Steering Committee members here

Our City government, as well as other organizations, play an instrumental role in sustaining what we love and want to see grow here on Bainbridge Island. Every January, our City Council begins a new year with a roster full of work - including new and ongoing projects.
