Landscape Architect Jim Gerlach and Dr. Chris May assisted with the initial concept site designs. These concepts were discussed and recommendations provided by the Leadership Team of the Section 319 grant process, KHBF Secretary Art Castle, Mike Brown the Project Site Development Manager and by the Home Builders Association Board of Directors.

A variety of ideas were explored in developing the site design including closing the Auto Center Way entrance, a variety of configurations of location of bioretention cells and rain garden planters, replacing the existing shed and the types and locations of pervious paving to be used.

A Landscape Committee consisting of Jim Gerlach, Landscape Architect; Peg Tillery, WSU Cooperative Extension; Jim Trainer, Kitsap Treez; and Lisa Phipps, JL Scott Real Estate, Silverdale. The committee provided recommendations for the types and quantities of native plants and trees to be used, where to acquire and place the plants and have been instrumental in the planning of the project. In 2007, Ben Cooper of Ben Cooper Landscape Construction, Inc. joined the committee and provided detailed planning of the soil amendment, assistance in acquiring the plants and will be responsible for the new irrigation system and site preparation for planting after the final grade is complete.

In addition, the City of Bremerton has installed pervious concrete sidewalks around the Showcase site as part of their Auto Center Way road widening project.
