As the story has been passed down through generations, it is said that the city of Bremerton had inadvertently built portions of its wharf, an important commercial and transportation hub, over privately-owned tidelands. The property owner's threatened lawsuit prompted a signature-gathering campaign by citizens to put the formation of a port district within the city of Bremerton's boundaries on the ballot in the hopes of resolving the dispute.

The next 100 years the Port pledges to continue to leverage every tax dollar the Port receives through wise investment in job-generating facilities, infrastructure, and programs, and continue its collaboration with public and private partners in the interest of long-term economic and recreational benefits shared throughout Kitsap County and the West Puget Sound region.
Over the last 100 years, Port of Bremerton constituents have selected port commissioners with a strong commitment to making decisions in the vested interest of the people they represent. The port district is divided into three commission districts, each with an elected official that is elected to a six-year term. The Board is represented on various organizations and committees related to Port activities.
