years later to the newly constructed Bremerton Boardwalk. The festival has remained
there ever since and continues to grow each year with vendor booths being sold out
within two weeks of opening the application process. She provided a schedule of 2014
events highlighting some of the main activities and explained how they are giving back to
the vendors for their support over the past 25 years. The Board thanked Ms. Atkinson for
her diligence and hard work managing the festival over the last 25 years. In response to

because you cant get rid of blackberries and Labor Day was the best timing because
blackberries are in season.

AGENDA SUMMARY

Agenda Item No: Action Item #1
Subject: Right of First Refusal Agreement
Exhibits: Agreement document; properties map
Prepared By: Jim Rothlin, CEO
Meeting Date: September 9, 2014

Summary:
The Port has been in discussions with Roger Jensen, President of Nordic Properties, Inc.
regarding properties owned by Nordic Properties along SW Bay Street in Port Orchard (see
attached properties). Staff believes that these properties which have waterfront as well as
ownership of tidelands could be a useful site for potential tenants requiring water access.
Although the Port has no client in mind at the present, it does from time to time work with
companies looking for water accessibility. The Port is interested in the ability to purchase
and develop this site, should there be a need in the future. Mr. Jensen has approved a right
of first refusal agreement that would give the Port the right to purchase this property should
an opportunity come along that would benefit the community by the Port taking ownership
of the property for the purpose of economic development and job creation. The intent is not
to prevent others interested in the site, but to create an additional marketing opportunity
for a business who may be interested in using the site, but not owning the property.
Fiscal Impact:
There is no fiscal impact at this time for the execution of the contract. Any financial impact
would not occur unless the commission was to decide to later act on the agreement and
purchase the property. The amount is not specified at this time, but would be fair market
value determined at the time of the purchase.
Recommendation:
Staff recommends at this time for the Commission to approve the right of first refusal
agreement between the Port of Bremerton and Nordic Properties, Inc. for parcels stated in
the agreement, and to authorize the CEO to sign all necessary documents to execute this
agreement.
Motion for Consideration:
I move to approve the right of first refusal agreement between the Port of
Bremerton and Nordic Properties. Inc. for parcels as stated in the agreement,
and to authorize the CEO to sign all necessary documents to execute this
agreement.
