Kitsap Public Facilities District (PFD) unanimously passed a motion on Monday to provide funding for two projects at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.
Kitsap PFD will pool their money with funds from the county for a $400,000 paving project for the parking lot of Gordon Field and $150,000 for 500 seats for the Bluejackets baseball field. PFD will use $350,000 from their $600,000 in new bond revenue. Combined with $200,000 of the countys money the total price of $550,000 for both projects will be funded between both parties. The 500 seats are in addition to 600 bleacher seats that are already in PFDs initial budget.
