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


The Board will further discuss the seven projects during the meetings in June. They will be discussed individually in the order as above - the order they presented to the Board. At the conclusion of these considerations, the Board will rank the projects to determine the top 3 or 4 projects. The ranking took place during the July 29th Board Meeting.


NOTE: The Ranking Table for determining the Finalists 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 will negotiate ILAs (Interlocal Agreements) with the KPFD in order to receive any funding for their projects. After those are in place, they will go before the KPFD Board in a final round of considerations of all estimated costs, community and economic benefits, contributions to costs from other private & public partners and details of proposed construction schedules.


Final announcement of the funding awards to two or three of the final projects may be announced in the fourth quarter. A revised meeting schedule for the remainder of 2019 has been approved and it can be found in the meeting section above. A new meeting schedule for 2020 will be discussed at the October 28th meeting.

NOTE: There may be feasibility studies to be performed and heard before the final decisions can be made. This may push the funding awards into early 2020.


An additional notice will be posted if and when that occurs.
