A Dream for port orchard
South Kitsap has been in need of a central gathering place for decades, a venue to provide a multitude of functions and uses that would serve the public and business needs of our community. Too often we hear that Port Orchard and South Kitsap have so much potential - we agree and are committed to seeing that potential fulfilled. This will start with the development of a Community Events Center that will provide amenities with a full range of options for small and large users, while attracting visitors from throughout the region.
UPDATE: Monday, July 29th, in the Commissioners’ Chambers, the KPFD Board of Directors voted to decide with projects would receive funding. The South Kitsap Community Events Center was voted the #1 project, ensuring we would be funded! Thank you all for signing petitions, sharing posts and attending meetings in support of the SKCEC. #imagineportorchard
Over the last few months, several proposals have been put forth to the KPFD for community projects seeking funding. Remember back to March, when we rallied in Silverdale? 100+ people from SK filled the room as we presented our project. The last few months has been a waiting game as other projects presented their requests for funding. THE WAIT IS OVER and we now have home field advantage for the very first time! The decider meeting, the meeting where the finalists will be revealed is in PORT ORCHARD.
