Personalized tiles and bricks to be sold by Port Orchard

PORT ORCHARD — City Hall’s main entrance off Prospect Street and in front of the police department on Bay Street soon will be paved with tiles and bricks that have messages commemorating friends and loved ones — or yourself.

The city clerk’s office said it will begin selling commemorative 6-by-6-inch tiles with three-line messages of no more than 15 characters or spaces each. Each tile is $100. They will be located in front of the main entrance off Prospect Street. Commemorative 3.5-by-7-inch bricks, to be placed in front of the police department, will be sold for $75. They will display a two-line message of no more than 18 characters or spaces each.

Additional proceeds from the tiles and bricks, the city clerk’s office said, will go toward purchasing holiday and event decorations for downtown Port Orchard.

Tile and brick applications can be found on the city’s website at or by calling the city clerk’s office at 360-876-4407.
