The Kitsap Public Facilities District (KPFD) is an independent municipal corporation managing Washington state sales tax rebate funds allocated to Kitsap County. It partners with other public entities (Cities or the County) to build public facilities for the benefit of the residents of the County and to generate revenue for the County through taxes and use fees.
All facilities are funded based on four guiding principles:
- #1 – Promote economic development
- #2 – Ensure efficient use of public sales taxes
- #3 – Be innovative and meets the needs of the community
- #4 – Allow for multi-use purposes and made available to the public
Details and examples can be found on the Facilities Projects page.
The initial facilities selected to receive funding from the KPFD included:
Kitsap Conference Center at Bremerton Harborside
Kitsap Sun Pavilion at the Fairgrounds & Events Center
North Kitsap Regional Events Center
The economic impact of these facilities, and the benefit to residents and the communities of Kitsap County are impressive. Click here for more details.
