There won’t be a business incubator at the Port of Bremerton in Bremerton, Wash., any time soon, but how about an RV storage facility for the port?
Port leaders, eager to find something that makes a little money for the port, are putting out feelers for just that, according to the Kitsap Sun.
It would be in the port’s Olympic View Industrial Park across Highway 3 from Bremerton National Airport. Three pieces of land in the park would be candidates, some large, some smaller.
The port wouldn’t get into the recreational vehicle storage business directly, but instead would enter into a business arrangement with a private party. The private party would lease land from the port and manage the facility for the port, according to information just posted on the port’s website.
Port leaders already have had talks with an RV businessman and have come away believing there are not enough RV storage facilities in the area, according to Tim Thomson, director of real estate and industrial park development for the port.
And with the port’s other business endeavors — the airport, industrial park and marinas — not breaking even, leaders hope this would at least be a step in the right direction.
“And frankly, it’s a way to generate some revenue for the port,” Thomson said, adding it wouldn’t take much money to set up.
