BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - A long-planned Department of Veterans Affairs clinic in Bremerton has been delayed so organizers can find a new location for the facility.
The Kitsap Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2kaDgQm ) that VA Puget Sound Health Care System announced Thursday that it terminated a lease of a potential new space because the building does not meet seismic requirements.
A search for a new site is tentatively scheduled to begin in February and that process is expected to take between 6 months and a year.
Losing the chosen site, which was selected in 2015, is a blow for the planned facility which has been in the works for years. A new clinic will not be open for at least 18 months.
