Officials begin combing through Nascar details

Myriad details need discussion in order to lay the groundwork for the proposed Kitsap County Nascar racetrack, independent of any financial or legislative considerations.

“There are key steps we need to take and key issues we need to face,” said consultant Hugh Spitzer, who was hired by Kitsap County to filter through the vast amounts of information generated by the proposal. “Legislation is a big hurdle. After that point, we will need to create a new governmental entity, one that will determine how land-use and permitting will fit in.”

Spitzer was one of several speakers at a Monday meeting in Bremerton’s Norm Dicks Center, dubbed “Leadership Summit: Proposed Nascar Speedway.”

The meeting attracted elected officials, county staff and local economic experts.

Spitzer said the acceptance of the racetrack represents the beginning of the process, such as which requirements to impose and when to invoke them.
