Central Kitsap Reporter

Central Kitsap Reporter

The Central Kitsap Reporter, founded in 1983, publishes local news every Friday covering the Silverdale, Keyport, Seabeck, Belfair, Allyn, Tracyton and Bangor communities. Silverdale, an unincorporated town adjacent to the Bangor Submarine Naval Base, includes a large military population as well as retired veterans who call the area home. Silverdale managed to enter the 21st century with some undeveloped land – pastures, roaming deer and old-time barns – and you can still find a solitary, tree-lined avenue or a quiet park; relaxing spots can be found in the Silverdale waterfront park, on the Clear Creek Trail and Island Lake County Park. With a circulation of 14,809 newspapers every week, the Reporter is popular with readers in each of the communities that make up Central Kitsap.
