Port Considers Bremerton Waterfront Property

April 14th, 2009 by Steven Gardner

The Port of Bremerton is interested in buying waterfront property near its Bremerton Marina. The Kitsap County Consolidated Housing Authority once had plans on building more condos and hotel space next to its two Harborside Condomoniums building. It’s now taking offers, though. Rachel Pritchett has the story on what the port might want to do. Boaters would like parking. It’s the one thing boaters have always said was a weakness of the new site. Parking isn’t the only option, commissioners say.

By the way, all three commissioners are interested. Larry Stokes, who regained his former commissioner spot in large part because of his disgust with how the marina was funded, nonetheless has said that now that the marina is here, he wants it to succeed.

    Maybe the Port should buy some boats and lease some slots to itself.

    It makes you wonder what the Port of Bremerton really uses to think or plan the future. It must be a dart board with various ways to irritate the taxpayers. Now that they have dumped millions from the 150% increase in taxes into a very empty marina, they want to spend more for parking spaces for the marina tenants. Whats next? Are we in South Kitsap going to pay for a covered downtown garage for Mahan? Are we going to pay to pull KCCHA out of its financial quagmire? For a organization who is supposed to build economic development within its boundaries they seem to have gone off track. They want to build SEED up but can even rent a building we as taxpayers are paying to keep now. If I remember right, it’s Kincer in 2010 and Mahan in 2012. As long as Stokes tries to be more taxpayer friendly it is only a few years before real change can happen in the Port of Bremerton.
