New Bremerton Courthouse in the Works?

I confirmed with Bremerton City Attorney Roger Lubovich today that yes, a new courthouse property is getting a serious look.

City officials are currently studying the Kitsap Bank location at Sixth Street and Park Avenue, Lubovich said.

But it’s not yet time to slam the gavel down on a project long in the works. Kitsap Bank President and CEO James Carmichael told me Tuesday that despite having also having two other locations on Sixth Street (including the former West Sound Bank at Sixth and Pacific, which was once a candidate itself for the courthouse), his company is still getting good use out of the Park Avenue location.

The property is not for sale, but Carmichael said they’re getting a building appraisal. The city is having an appraisal completed as well on the approximately 12,000 square foot building, Lubovich said.

I’ll have a full story in Wednesday’s edition.
