Blossom Hill development in limbo


The large Blossom Hill commercial and residential development that’s been taking shape in Lynwood Center appears to have stalled, and few involved with it are talking.

Blossom Hill’s owners, including its key developer Bill Nelson, did not return phone calls. Subcontractors, bank representatives and city leaders were also mute.

At least 10 liens worth about $900,000 were filed in the Kitsap County Auditor’s Office against the development by construction subcontractors who performed work but were not fully paid.

About 80 hillside homes and a block-long line of commercial units on Lynwood Center Road were part of the development’s plan.
