Help Bremerton chart course for revitalization

City received $300,000 grant from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

BREMERTON — The City of Bremerton was recently awarded $300,000 of grant funding by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to study four specific areas for revitalization — Wheaton Way, Callow Avenue, Anderson Cove and the Downtown Core.

Here is what will be discussed: The impacts of brownfield sites on neighborhoods and how to transform them.
