Tulalip Tribes eye $250M in economic development projects

The Tulalip Tribes of Washington are considering $250 million in projects at the Quil Ceda Village, Chairman Mel Sheldon said.

Cabela’s, a hunting, fishing and outdoor supplies store, is due to open in April at the village. Sheldon said the company is hiring 250 people to work there.

The tribe is also expanding the 100-store Seattle Premium Outlet Stores at the village. The project includes a parking garage that will pave the way for 40 more stores.

Additionally, the tribe is looking at placing a justice center, an event center and a convention center at the village. “As long as we keep our business healthy we can continue turning dreams into reality,” Sheldon told the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce, The Snohomish County Business Journal reported.

The tribe employs more than 3,500 people.
