The Poulsbo Events and Recreation Center (PERC) is a concept for a multi-use recreational, educational, and events center.

With the financial support of the Kitsap Public Facilities District and the encouragement of the Kitsap Community, the City of Poulsbo is undertaking the development of this new regional center.

UPDATE – October 15, 2021: The PERC Site Design Concept has undergone refinements through focusing on event center and outdoor recreation, based on the robust input received from the Community Steering Committee, the input received from the Poulsbo community, and findings from the PERC Market Analysis Report. ARC Architects team members presented updated programming options, and a preliminary site and building design to the Community Steering Committee on Thursday, September 9, 2021.  Check out the September 9th summary packet by clicking hereopens PDF file .
