BREMERTON-Four groups have submitted competing project proposals to the Kitsap Public Facilities District this week in an effort to secure state funds for their building plans.

The facilities district aims to greenlight a project in order to cash in on a 33-cent sales tax rebate on every $1,000 the state collects. This rebate initiative requires the district to come up with a $10 million project, provide at least $3.33 million in local matching funds and break ground by Jan. 1, 2003.

Throwing their hats into the ring this week were the City of Bremerton, the Kitsap County Parks and Recreation Department, McCormick Land Co. and the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce.

Bremerton intends to construct a conference center for as many as 250 people along with a privately-funded waterfront hotel with 100 rooms and 75 condominiums. Silverdale wants to build a similar waterfront conference center adjacent to the West Coast Silverdale Hotel. McCormick Land Co. is proposing a conference center nearly double the size of the Bremerton and Silverdale projects, along with a hotel at McCormick Woods in Port Orchard.

The county’s parks and recreation department plans call for renovations to Thunderbird Stadium, the Kitsap Pavilion and Presidents Hall.

District officials will hear public presentations of each plan next week and are scheduled to give a thumbs up to one group in early September.
