SKIA / PSIC - Bremerton

South Kitsap Industrial Area (SKIA) has been renamed Puget Sound Industrial Center - Bremerton (PSIC - Bremerton). 


The City of Bremerton has prepared a subarea plan for the Puget Sound Industrial Center - Bremerton, commonly known as PSIC - Bremerton (formerly South Kitsap Industrial Area or SKIA). The project supports green economic development, ensures that future development will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions, promotes sustainable low-impact development and environmental stewardship.

Due to the distinct context and potential for development in PSIC - Bremerton, the creation of a subarea plan was necessary in order to provide targeted guidance for future development.

Another important piece of the planning efforts undertaken for PSIC - Bremerton is the preparation of a Planned Action EIS. A Planned Action EIS supports streamlined environmental review for qualified projects. An EIS, or Environmental Impact Statement, is an in-depth analysis of alternatives options for achieving the proposed project. In the case of PSIC - Bremerton, the EIS considered 3 alternatives for how development might occur in the future.

Together these 2 documents effectively position PSIC - Bremerton as a compelling option for industrial development and are important elements in creating new jobs for our community.  For more information view our Documents page.
