What do we love about Bainbridge?

We choose to live here because of our vibrant, creative and caring community, our island’s extraordinary natural beauty and our wonderful neighbors. 


We believe that we deserve an open, transparent, effective City government, rooted in local control, which is supportive of our common island goals and values. 


Our safety and the protection of our Environment 


Continued funding and construction of safe paths to bike and walk

Continued growth of open and connected spaces island wide


Well maintained and cost-effective water, sewer and stormwater systems that safeguard our environment for our residents
 and visitors 

Maintaining and improving our infrastructure to meet the changing needs of our community and those who serve it 


Our Community Assets:

We began Quality Bainbridge in summer 2013 as Island citizens who felt there needed to be an organization that was devoted to supporting the values that so many of us share.

Our City government, as well as other organizations, is instrumental in sustaining what we love and want to see grow on this Island. 

Every January our City Council begins a new year with a roster full of work - including both new and ongoing work. Their agendas can be found here
