  1. This is how it starts, first it’s slow, then it builds up a pace that can’t be stopped. Fast ferry being another piece of this slide down a slippery slope.

    Next thing you know they’re putting apts up all over the place coupled with million plus homes on private lots transforming Kitsap into just another over priced suburb of Seattle with the “hired help” left renting these.

    1. I agree I’m am one of the residents that will lose their housing for the Seattle over growth we are very scared there simply is not enough housing for those of us who live here and want part of the issues which are on there way so sad very sad

  2. This is inevitable. Supply a nd demand, people.

    The same forces that made Bainbridge Island pricey are going to move right along through Kitsap. Some will win…most will lose.

  3. Supply and demand my left foot. It’s called greed, plain and simple. I’ll ask it again: At what point do we stop and say, “Enough!” How many people have to be homeless in Bremerton and throughout Kitsap County before we finally acknowledge the problems with too high rents?

    The people who get kicked out of their apartments and find they can’t afford any other place to live don’t say it’s supply and demand. The people who have to move away from their hometown and from their friends and families because they can’t afford to live here any longer never say it’s just the economy. Their economy isn’t being benefited from higher rents. Nor is the economy of Kitsap county.

    People are spending 50% or more of their income on housing. That extra 20% they have to pay for rent is money that is not being circulated in the community. It’s not being spent at local businesses or being put into savings accounts. It’s money that isn’t used for bills, clothing, utilities, or health.

    It’s time we start capping rents. No, not controlling them, capping them. We need to make the highest rent in the county at 30% of what a person would make on minimum wage. When minimum wage goes up, rents go up, but only by the same percentage.

    As it is, we currently have a whole segment of the population who could be productive and contributing citizens, but instead are being ground down under the debt of housing. It’s as if we’ve thrown out all those people and walked away from them. And when they lose in the battle for housing, we all lose.

    So we better start learning to count our losses.

    1. Economics does not bear your theory out. New York City, Santa Monica, both practice rent control. Are these places affordable? No.
      You complain about apartments being built. That is the one thing that may actually ease rents. If you have caps on rent, then you incentivize landlords to convert to condos, and for existing landlords not to maintain property.
