The Puget Sound Industrial Center – Bremerton (PSIC-Bremerton) (formerly known as SKIA), located in southwest Bremerton, contains about 3,700 acres planned for industrial development and use. Within the Puget Sound Region, PSIC-Bremerton is recognized as an important industrial employment center. The Puget Sound Regional Council’s Vision 2040 Plan has designated PSIC-Bremerton as one of eight Manufacturing/Industrial Centers (MICs) in the region. Vision 2040 recognized MICs as important employment locations that serve both current and long-term regional economic objectives and calls for the provision of infrastructure and services in MICs necessary to serve intensive manufacturing and industrial activity.
The US Department of Commerce has designated more than 500 acres of land in Kitsap County, at the Port of Bremerton’s industrial park and at Bremerton National Airport, as part of Foreign Trade Zone(FTZ) 216.
Another important piece of the planning efforts undertaken for SKIA 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 SKIA, the EIS considered three alternatives for how development might occur in the future.
