Plans for conference center get big push The Sun, Dec.14, 2001; By Sally Farhat

Bremerton may be a step closer to getting a conference center, parking garage, hotel and restaurant on its waterfront.

Convention center must grow, says panel, Seattle Times, Friday, April 4, 1997.

"Bellevue's 3-year-old downtown Meydenbauer Center should be nearly doubled in size to attract larger conventions and make it more competitive, a citizens advisory committee has recommended."
