Suquamish Tribe opposes Filipino cultural center
The Suquamish Tribe of Washington is opposing plans for a multicultural in Kitsap.

The tribe says the proposed Filipino community center is too close to Clear Creek. The tribe fears the development will hurt salmon.

"Community centers are not an appropriate rural use and should be located in urban areas where the majority of the people are located," a tribal biologist wrote of the plan, The Kitsap Sun reported.

The Northwest Ilocandia Association center is being reviewed by Kitsap County. A decision is expected in May.
