Citizen comments to help shape SKCEC design

PORT ORCHARD — City of Port Orchard officials are seeking input from residents about the South Kitsap Community Events Center proposed for the downtown area.

Port Orchard officials are soliciting citizen input through Oct. 16.

The project, to be built partly with $12 million in funding supplied by the Kitsap Public Facilities District, is in the design stage as envisioned by Bremerton architectural firm Rice Fergus Miller. The Port Orchard City Council selected the firm in July to create conceptual designs for the facility.

According to a news release from the city, “Rice Fergus Miller in Bremerton is leading the design phase and they want us to think big and get creative. We encourage you to spend a few minutes to express your vision for the facility and share the survey with your friends and families.”

The survey can be accessed at The City of Port Orchard has provided residents with a webpage to view that has information about the SKCEC and the design and development phase:

SKCEC is being designed to provide a multi-purpose meeting space for the South Kitsap community and a new location for the Port Orchard branch of the Kitsap Regional Library.

After the community input process is completed, the city “will correlate public comments with planning data and hold a second iteration that will build on what we have learned and present the public with additional information and next steps.”
