April 2019: after a months long period of presentations and questions, the PFD Board is ready to get down to busness - evaluating and selecting New Projects in whihc tio invest millions of dollars of PFD capital. It will be some months yet before that final decision is made.  There is also the finalizaion of the bonding and financing research, to determine which firm will be the bond underwriter and which will be the financial advisor in the process of financing our selection. We have heard from capapble teams presenting some excellent projects, it will be a dificult process to determine which will be the final choices.

February 2018: A new Director has been appointed for the County's South District, Erin Leedham of Ollala. She will be officially appointed by Resolution at the Feb 12th BOCC meeting. Erin is the General Manager of the Kitsap Mall and has years of experience in commercial coonstruction projects and facilities management. She will be in attendance at our Feb 26th KPFD Board meeting.

August 2017: So quickly we have to say goodbye to Adrienne Breznau, as her husband has taken a new job in Minnesota. However, we are pleased to announce the addition of an experienced veteran of politics, Boards of Directors and economic development, former county Commissioner and Port of bremerton Commissioner, Bill Mahan. Bill will be attending his first meeting in September.

June 2016: Adrienne Breznau will be the new epresentative from Port Orchard and she will attend her first meeting in September. The new Officers for 2016-2018 are Daron Jagodzinske, Chair; Patrick Hatchel remains as Vice-Chair; and Walt Draper has another term as Treasurer.

May 2016: Jeff Braden,our Board Chair for the last two years, will be leaving the Board after his last Board meeting on June 27th. He will be replaced by a new Director recommended by Mayor Putansuu of Poulsbo and ratified by the County Commissioners earlier in June. Three other Directors, whose terms also expire at the end of June, Patrick Hatchel, Rick Smith and Tom Bullock, will be reappointed to the Board. The Board will elect new officers at the June meeting for their two year terms.

June 2015: We are pleased to have Walt Draper come back onto the KPFD Board representing Bremerton. He spent 10 years on the Board previously and is returning for more exciting development at our facilities.

January 2015: New member Tom Bullock attends his first meeting, only to find out that Anita Albright would be leaving the Board, leaving us with yet another vacancy. Mayor Lent will have to fin another volunteer. The Board chose to postpone the Strategy and Planning meeting until the Board is fully staffed.

December - The County Commissioners approved the appointment of our final Director, Tom Bullock of Bainbridge Island. He will be completing the last two years of the term vacated by Anne Blair. Tom will attend his first meeting in January, when we consider EventFund applications for 2015.

July/August - A new slate of Officers was voted on by the Board at the July meeting - Jeff Braden is the new Chairman of the Board; Patrick Hatchel the new Vice-Chair; and Anita Albright is the new Treasurer. Sadly, after only one meeting, Laurie Rice has had to resign from the KPFD Board because of a family relocation so a new representative will need to be nominated. Daron Jagodzinske was nominated by Mayor Erickson to represent Poulsbo and was confirmed by the Commissioners.

May - Laurie Rice has been nominated to represent Bainbridge Island and is awaiting a confirming Resolution from the Commissioners on May 12th. The other nominees should be submitted by the 23rd of May for appointment in June. Their four year terms would begin in July. We are pleased to announce that Teresa Osinski, the Board Chair, has been approved to be re-appointed for the position representing South Kitsap Commissioner's District.

April - Another Director, Russ Shiplet, representative from Poulsbo, tendered his resignation unexpectedly because of a job change to Texas. A search has begun in Poulsbo for a replacement. The representative from Bremerton, our Vice-Chair Roy Runyon, has indicated he will not seek re-appointment, so a search has also started for the Bremerton position.

March - Our treasurer, Anne Blair, representative from Bainbridge Island, tendered her resignation from the Board and a search has begun to replace her.

KPFD Guiding Principles for Projects & Facilities:

Economic development:

Ability to generate revenue by bringing regional and small national conferences (vendors, participants and guests) and sports tournaments (organizers, participants, families and fans) and all the attendant media coverage into Kitsap County.

Efficient use of public and private money:
Both the Kitsap Conference Center and Kitsap Fairgrounds & Event Center
-Used state sales tax rebate managed by the KPFD to produce capital investment funding from bond sales.
-Garner multiple funding sources from inside and outside Kitsap County, including

• $1.5 million in federal and state grants for the tournament quality lighting for the Kitsap Pavilion, new baseball fields at Kitsap Fairgrounds and the fountains on the public plazas at Bremerton Harborside
• $18 million from City of Bremerton
• $1million matching funds from Kitsap County.

-Spur private investment in Kitsap County. To date these investments include:
• nearly $20 million from Opus Development Corporation for the Kitsap Conference Center and public plazas at Bremerton Harborside
• $30,000 in-kind contribution from RainStorm for the rainwater/underground recycling system in the Fairgrounds parking lot.

The newest construction technologies in parking lot construction are being used at both projects, resulting in
• water recycling and operating cost savings (approximately 40% or $50,000 a year) and avoidance of runoff problems at the Fairgrounds
• safety and earthquake damage prevention through rebar and tension-framing in the Conference Center underground parking structure.

he Kitsap Conference Center, North Kitsap Regional Event Center and the Kitsap Fairgrounds & Event Center all feature multi-use facilities:
• At the Fairgrounds and Event Center, baseball fields have soccer fields in the outfields and share parking, lavatory and concession facilities among four fields.
• The Pavilion houses basketball, wrestling, volleyball, tennis badminton or community events with removable sports equipment and bleachers, as well as permanently lined sports flooring.
• The Conference Center meeting spaces are appropriate for conferences and meetings, weddings and community receptions, and commercial and cultural exhibits.
• The artificial turf fields installed by the PFD and its partners at NK Stadium, Strawberry Field and Gordon Field are multi-purpose, all-weather fields and can all handle soccer, lacrosse, football and, in a pinch, rugby, and in all kinds of weather.
