The Kitsap Public Facilities District (KPFD)

KPFD is an independent municipal corporation managing Washington state sales tax rebate funds allocated to Kitsap County. It partners with other public entities (Cities or the County) to build public faciliites for the benefit of the residents of the County and to generate revenue for the County through taxes and use fees.

The first facilities selected to receive funds from the KPFD have included the very successful Kitsap Conference Center at Bremerton Harborside; the refurbishing of the Couty's largest event space, the Kitsap Sun Pavilion at the Fairgrounds & Events Center; and the first stages of the North Kitsap Regional Events Center.


The economic impact and benefit to residents and the communities of Kitsap County are impressive. Please click here to read more details.







The Future:
The next facilites to be funded by the KPFD were selected by the Board of Directors from projects submmitted to the Board in 2019 and are listed with the Public entity that will own the facility:


1) South Kitsap Community Events Center (SKCEC) - Port Orchard

2) Poulsbo Events and Recreation Center (PERC) - Pouslbo

3) Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park (PGFHP) - Kitsap County

4) Circuit of the NW (POB/CNW) - Port of Bremerton


These new facilities are under development and some of the first phases will be under construction in 2021.

NOTE: In the new sections of the Archives page, a new section has been added where the Meeting Packets of documents for the 2021 Board Meetings can be found. Document packets for the 2020 Board Meetings will be added over the next month or two.


It also contains other pertinent documents that may be of interest - Bylaws, PFD RCWs, ILAs, etc.


This is an ongoing effort, so check occasionally to see what may have been added. If there are other documents you feel would be helpful, let me know.
