Evaluation Process:

The New Project teams have gone before the KPFD Board for a pesentation of their projects, based on the four main goals identified above. The Board Meetings were video recorded and the presentations are available on the Kitsap PFD YouTube channel:


   February 25th:   Central Kitsap Event Center
                             Port Gamble Heritage Park

   March 11th         Port Orchard Event Center

                             Poulsbo Event & Rec Center

   March 25th         Bremerton Pendergast Park
                             BI Parks Pool Aquatic Center

   April 22nd           Port of Bremerton/Circuit of the NW

  (or click on the project title to view the video presentations)


The Board discussed the seven projects during meetings in June and July. They were discussed individually in the order as above - the order they presented to the Board. At the conclusion of these considerations, the Board ranked the projects to determine the funding preference. The ranking took place during the July 29th Board Meeting.


NOTE: The Ranking Table for determining the Funding preference is attached here.


The Project ranking order was -
     1) Port Orchard Community & Event Center*;
     2) Poulsbo Event & Recreation Center*;
     3) Port Gamble Heritage Park*;
     4) Port of Bremerton/Circuit of the NW**;

     5) BI Parks District Aquatic Complex;

     6) Central Kitsap Events Center; and

     7) Pendergast Park, Bremerton.


The top project teams (designated with *) have negotiated ILAs (Interlocal Agreements) with the KPFD in order to receive funding for their projects. The ILAs for the top three projects have been approved by the KPFD Board. Two of the three have approved by our public partner. (**Note: the POB ILA for the Phase II portion of the CNW project was already in place.)


Now these are in place, there will be meetings of the Steering Committees between the two partners on a regular basis and the progress reported to the PFD Board. This will cover estimated costs, community and economic benefits, contributions to costs from other private & public partners and details of proposed construction schedules.


The new ILAs will be available in a couple of weeks on the new Documents section of the archives page where the Minutes of the meetings are usually found.

The PFD has begun a months long submission period for New Projects to be funded in 2019 and beyond. Legislation passed in 2017 gives the Kitsap PFD the ability to sell bonds against future income between 2027 and 2041 that could amount to $15 million or more.

Preference may be given to projects in South Kitsap or on Bainbridge Island. but not limited to those areas of the County. They would have to be sizeable projects, amounting to $10 million or more in scope and value. There would also have to be a match of dollars, land or labor from a public partner equal to at least a third of the project value.
