Project to receive $2.5 million in funding

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed $2.5 million in new federal funding to support the City of Bremerton’s Quincy Square Project, which aims to revitalize a downtown street into an active, housing-based urban center with focused arts, entertainment and evening-centric retail spaces.

The 12-bill governing funding package, which passed with bipartisan support, included the Quincy Square Project funding to assist the construction phase, which will include street reconstruction, landscape and stormwater improvements, water improvements and relocations, lighting, pedestrian and festival amenities, art, signage, engineering and project management.

The legislation, which was championed by U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer of the 6th Congressional District, was expected to be approved by the U.S. Senate and signed by President Biden. Kilmer led the effort to secure funding for the project through the House Appropriations Committee’s Community Project Funding process.

“The City of Bremerton appreciates Congressman Kilmer’s support of this vital investment in our community,” Bremerton Mayor Greg Wheeler said.
