TULALIP VIES TO BE HOME TO AMAZON’S “HQ2”

Tulalip offers Amazon sites in the first tribally chartered city in the United States
Tulalip is participating in this regional proposal with Snohomish and King County

 

TULALIP, WASHINGTON – Tulalip Tribes have partnered with regional leaders to persuade Amazon to build “HQ2” in Washington State. The Tulalip Tribes are offering large sites in Quil Ceda Village, the first tribally chartered city in the United States, as part of the joint bid announced on Thursday.

Tulalip Tribes leadership is confident Quil Ceda Village is a prime location for Amazon. It boasts buildable and appropriately zoned land, with a full suite of utilities and a location easily accessible to I-5. The Tulalip Tribe has also worked extensively with County and State officials to increase transportation capacity in the region.

“Amazon has proven themselves as forward thinking and the areas where they do business flourish,” said Marie Zackuse, Tribal Chairwoman. “We feel strongly that Amazon’s commitment to job growth, talent retention and their generous philanthropic culture aligns with Tulalip’s philosophy of looking forward, not only for our success, but for the success of our neighboring communities. “Amazon has been touted as ‘the world’s most customer centric company,’ and that generous focus on the long-term relationship with people, rather than short term profits, fits right in with our style of business, Zackuse continued.

“The Tulalip Tribes believe we all benefit when innovative companies make their home in our communities, Zackuse said. There are a wealth of positives for everyone involved that will occur from Amazon locating their second headquarters in our region, and this is why Tulalip is participating in this regional proposal with Snohomish and King County.

“Our teams are ready, the real estate is ready, and all that is left is a business that would best complement our ideals and our economy. We strongly believe, with Amazon, we’ve found that.”

Assuming the helm: Theresa Sheldon talks about the Quil Ceda Village Council

Quil Ceda Village is far more than the economic arm of the Tulalip Tribes; it’s a municipality in its own right. In fact it’s only the second federally recognized city in the nation. Founded in 2001, the QCV, like any other city, is governed by a city council and city ordinances. On June 16th, the current council, including newly appointed president, Theresa Sheldon, was sworn in along with Marie Zackuse and Glen Gobin.

“Historically the board members who did not hold an executive seat on council where assigned to represent the Quil Ceda Village Council,” Sheldon explained. “Since I have no businesses myself, it makes me extremely unbiased when considering the types of development policies and laws that we should enact in the village therefore making it easier for me to accomplish the role of President of the city.”

The Consolidated Borough of Quil Ceda Village has undergone a metamorphosis in the last two decades. Once a munitions dump, then leased to Boeing, this 2,000 acres is now home to over 150 businesses and sees over 60,000 visitors a day.

“Thankfully our past leaders put this city into motion over two decades ago to ensure we have the prospering economic development of today,” Sheldon continued. “I’m grateful for the confidence of the board to fulfill this duty. Quil Ceda Village President is a one-year appointment, I was appointed with unanimous support from our tribal council.

“The role of the council and the president is laid out really well in the charter. My duties are very straight forward, I preside over the monthly QCV council meetings, I’m the spokesperson of the village council, but I have no regular administrative duties or authority in the day to day operations. However, unlike the chairman of the Board, who only votes in case of a tie, I am a voting member of the Quil Ceda Village Council.”

At the June 16th meeting the discussion ranged over a variety of topics including roads and infrastructure, tribal enterprises, and police and court services.

“We received an update on the 116th overpass construction project which will be an 18 month project and will begin in July,” said Sheldon. “We will begin to replace the existing bridge with a wider bridge to provide an additional through lane in each direction and a double left turn to the I-5 ramps.

“This work includes additional pedestrian pathways across the interstate, will improve LED lighting, new signals and signage. Tulalip has been working on increasing capacity on 116th Interchange since 2001 and the Tribe has put in $23 million for this interchange. We have worked closely with WSDOT to ensure all safety measures will be covered as this project is considered massive with a lot of concrete, dirt, and gravel being brought in.”

The Tulalip Market, formerly a simple gas station located on 116th Street at the North end of the Village, will now become the Tribes’ drive-through smoke shop, deli, and gas station.

“It was interesting to hear about the product choices and details of the enterprise,” said Sheldon. “We take for granted things like point of sale systems. When you go to a store, they just work. There are a lot of logistics that go into placing the systems. We use Chevron’s system for gas sales and a different system for merchandise. All those systems have to speak to each other and seamlessly integrate for accounting purposes.

“I’m so thankful that we have staff in place looking at all the details as well as the big picture; I want to raise my hands to our Quil Ceda Village staff for working together to ensure we have a successful opening and a successful store, t’igwicid. The store will officially be open for business during the second week of July.”

Like many other municipalities, the City pays for police and court services rather than retaining a city police force or operating its own court system. In this instance the Tulalip Police Department and Tulalip Tribal Court provide the services. In May alone, the Tulalip Police Department responded to 532 calls for services and conducted 72 traffic stops within the Village.

“From the beginning of the year until now, a lot of the calls were for suspicious vehicles (242 calls), shoplifting (279 calls), traffic stops (411) and trespass (110),” said Sheldon. “We averaged 3.6 assaults per month and 1.8 hit and runs. Anytime someone is hurt, it’s a big deal, but for the amount of visitors we see (60,000 daily), these are relatively low numbers.

“One of the ongoing concerns for tribal police is the transient encampments. Transient camps are a concern because they often have unsanitary or unsafe living conditions, and property damage can occur when squatters move into vacant buildings and properties. There’s also a safety concern from visitors about aggressive panhandling.

“The Tulalip Tribes and Quil Ceda Village staff believes in offering respect to every person, regardless of their path in life,” declared Sheldon. “We also absolutely support Tulalip Police in making decisions to address safety concerns.”

Of the cases filed at Tulalip Tribal Court approximately 28% of criminal cases, 33% of drug cases and 44% of “miscellaneous” criminal cases (mostly theft and trespass) originate in Quil Ceda Village.

“Tribal Court and the Prosecutors Office will be using the funding they receive from Quil Ceda Village to hire additional staff this year. Thankfully our court system runs effectively and our court staff does a great job making sure that all cases are processed and heard in a timely manner.”

Reflecting on the meeting, Sheldon said she looks forward to creating a new strategic plan for the Village and encourages more Tulalip citizens to become involved if they would like to learn more about the cities operations.

“All Quil Ceda Village Council meetings are open to the public,” she said. “We hold monthly meetings, typically the 2nd Tuesday of each month. I want people to know we conduct these meetings in an open and transparent way and that we are constantly thinking of our future generation with every decision we make.”

Tulalip Tribes and Quil Ceda Village Defend Right to Tax Tribal Economic Development

Source: Tulalip Tribes Public Affairs

 

Tulalip, WA–June 12, 2015–The Tulalip Tribes and its political subdivision, the Consolidated Borough of Quil Ceda Village, filed suit today in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington asking the Court to permanently enjoin the State of Washington and Snohomish County from imposing and enforcing sales and use, business and occupation, and personal property tax on economic activities within the boundaries of the Quil Ceda Village, to the extent of similar taxes imposed by Tulalip.

”With its own resources, the Tulalip Tribes transformed over 2,000 acres of vacant land into Quil Ceda Village, one of the premier shopping and entertainment destinations in Western Washington,” said Mel Sheldon, chairman of the Tulalip Tribes.  “Today, Quil Ceda Village has over 150 businesses, creating more than 6,000 jobs, attracting up to 60,000 visitors a day, and contributing hundreds of millions of dollars to the North Snohomish County economy.”

Information from the Washington Department of Revenue reveals that Quil Ceda Village generates approximately $40 million in tax revenues each year, but none of these taxes go to Tulalip or the Village.  Instead, the state and county collect one hundred percent of the taxes, with the vast majority going to Olympia.  “This is a grave injustice,” continued Sheldon.  “Like any government, Tulalip must generate tax revenues to fund the infrastructure and local government services it provides, which benefit not just Village businesses and patrons, but everyone in Snohomish County.”

“As a matter of federal law,” said Sheldon “Tulalip is entitled to collect its own Tribal taxes on business activities in Quil Ceda Village and Tulalip will defend its right to function as a sovereign government.”  Tulalip cannot do this as long as the state and county continue to impose and enforce their taxes because businesses and customers in the Village would be subject to dual taxation.  The United States has long recognized that tribal taxing authority is an important aspect of tribal sovereignty and self-governance.

For well over a decade the Tulalip Tribes has requested to work together with both state and county officials to reach a fair resolution on this issue, but these requests have been ignored.  “It is critical for the continued growth of the Village that we take action now,” said Chairman Sheldon.

The most influential business executives of the past 35 years: No. 34 knows a thing or two about economic development

 

john-mccoy*600

By Steven Goldsmith Managing Editor – Print- Puget Sound Business Journal

 

This is one in a series where the Puget Sound Business Journal counts down the top 35 most influential business leaders of the last 35. The countdown is part of the PSBJ’s 35th anniversary celebration.

As a leader of one of the nation’s most economically active tribes, Snohomish County’s Tulalips, John McCoy is a national as well as regional business figure.

McCoy, 71, recently retired as general manager of the tribes’ bustling Quil Ceda Village shopping, casino and hotel complex, but still serves in the state Legislature (10 years in the House, two in the Senate).

He was recognized as the Business Journal’s 2005 Executive of the Year for the dynamic business environment he helped foster.

It all started 20 years ago, when McCoy — a no-nonsense negotiator who sports a bolo tie and a crew-cut — returned to his tribe after serving 20 years in the Air Force and several years as a computer technician at Sperry Univac and the White House.

McCoy helped move the reservation from a communications system that he described as “one step above smoke signals” to a state-of-the-art. That program evolved into Tulalip Data Services, which installed networking infrastructure on the reservation and provides technical support to tribal departments.

The shopping complex near Marysville became a triumph of planning, vision and commitment on the part of the Tulalip Tribes — one of many still working to parlay gambling revenue into a more diverse and sustainable prosperity.

In addition to the popular hotel-casino, Quil Ceda includes a business park, the 125-tenant Seattle Premium Outlets, and stores such as Cabela’s and Home Depot.

For the Tulalips, much of this traces to McCoy.

“As you course your way through history, you see common people doing uncommon things,” Bob Drewel, head of the Puget Sound Regional Council and a former Snohomish County Executive, told the PSBJ in 2005. “John believes himself to be a common person, and he does some very uncommon things.”

TULALIP – Tulalip tribal council members and  Quil Ceda Village planning staff joined Jayson Levich, equity partner with Panera Bread for the Seattle region, to break ground for a new Panera restaurant on Thursday, August 14.

According to Quil Ceda Marketing Manager, Teresa Meece, the Tulalip Tribes and Panera Bread have signed a lease agreement to build a 4,300-square-foot restaurant. The new restaurant will be located on a vacant lot near the Home Depot in Quil Ceda Village on the Tulalip Indian Reservation and will feature the Panera menu of sandwiches, salads and baked goods, as well as a drive-through window.

“Panera Bread is a perfect addition to Quil Ceda Village,” said Meece. “In addition to their amazing food they share our values of giving back to our community. We are really excited and can’t wait for their doors to open.”

Wilcox Construction is currently completing prep work at the site. The restaurant is slated to open December of this year.

“It is very critical and important decision in who we partner with,” said Tulalip Tribal councilwoman Deb Parker shortly before the groundbreaking. “When we make these decisions we do it all together with one heart and one mind.”

Interim Quil Ceda Village General Manager, Martin Napeahi, explained that the Tribe carefully selects businesses for the Quil Ceda Village business park to continue building the local econcommunity. The lot that Panera will fill has sat vacant, waiting for the right business to present itself.

“How blessed we are to have been accepted as a partner after 15 years of searching for the right partner for this lot,” said Levich at the groundbreaking. “I feel humbly confident that our team will bring in the things that you want to see out of this partnership. We pride ourselves in taking great care of our customers and providing exceptional service, and quality food. On behalf of Panera Bread I am honored to become partners here and thank you for welcoming us. This is our going to be our 24th location in the Northwest and I am proud to say that it will be our very best.”

McCoy appointed to fill Harper’s state Senate seat

by Noah Haglund, The Everett Herald

John McCoyEVERETT — Democratic state Rep. John McCoy of Tulalip changed titles on Wednesday after the Snohomish County Council picked him to fill former state Sen. Nick Harper’s seat.

The vote was 5-0.

After becoming Washington’s newest state senator, McCoy pledged to continue the work he’s performed in the House for more than a decade.

“My top three priorities haven’t changed, which are elders, children and working adults,” McCoy said.

McCoy is interested in serving on senate committees dealing with appropriations, the environment, energy or transportation, among others.

The appointment will last until McCoy or another candidate is certified as the winner in the 2014 general election. He intends to run next year.

Councilman Brian Sullivan, a former state lawmaker, said McCoy’s experience would ensure a “seamless transition into the senate.”

An immigrant-rights activist who was on hand for the appointment also looked froward to seeing McCoy in his new role.

“We need more legislators like him who get out of the office and into the field,” said Nina Martinez, vice chair of the Latino Civic Alliance.

The County Council chose McCoy from a list of three nominees submitted by the Democrats of the 38th Legislative District which includes Everett, Tulalip and part of Marysville. Elected precinct committee officers voted on Tuesday night.

Their top pick was McCoy, with 16 votes. Next was state Rep. Mike Sells, D-Everett, with six votes, followed by Kelly Wright of Marysville, a former aide in the state House and one-time Marysville mayoral candidate. He received three votes.

During interviews, Sells and Wright urged the County Council to honor the party officers’ vote and to support McCoy.

McCoy, 70, is the retired general manager of Quil Ceda Village. He was first elected to the House in 2002.

McCoy is a member of the Tulalip tribes. His online biography says he served 20 years in the U.S. Air Force before retiring in 1981. He then worked as a White House computer technician from 1982 to 1985 before embarking on a management career in the private sector. He began his job at Quil Ceda Village in 2000.

Harper, 34, announced his surprise resignation on Nov. 9. He was elected to the 38th Legislative District senate seat in 2010 and would have been up for his first re-election next year.

Harper won his seat in a controversial race against incumbent Sen. Jean Berkey, a fellow Democrat. He had been strongly recruited by progressive Democrats who were frustrated with Berkey’s moderate stances. Harper triumphed in an election tainted by the efforts of an independent political committee to help him win.

Berkey died on Aug. 21 after a brief illness. She was 74.

McCoy’s appointment created a new vacancy in his former House seat. The Snohomish County Democrats and the County Council expect to initiate another selection process to fill it during the week of Dec. 9.

Steve Gobin: Retiring after a lifetime of service

At 62, short, grey and balding, Steve Gobin is not an imposing figure. He is humble, quiet, enjoys fly fishing and is devoted to his family. But ask him to talk about his tribe, economic development, sustainability, health care or any number of subjects connected to the wellbeing and longevity of his tribe, spark his passion, and Steve goes from mild mannered grandpa to razor sharp advocate in an instant.

After more than two decades of service for his tribe, Steve, General Manager of Tulalip’s Quil Ceda Village, is retiring. His career included labor in fisheries and forestry, 20 years of healthcare experience, work lobbying for expanded CHS (Contract Health Services) programs and funds, a stint in Governmental Affairs and finally his last two jobs, Deputy General Manager and General Manager of Quil Ceda Village. During his lifetime, he’s seen vast changes on the reservation, and he’s been a catalyst for some of them.

“I was born and raised here,” said Steve. “I think the tribe has gone through a lot of different personalities, but the leadership vision for the tribe has stayed consistent through those years. There’s still that consistency in the board today and I think that’s what kept us moving forward step after step after step.”

The tribe’s current prosperity is relatively new. Steve reminisced about his childhood.

“When I was a boy, we cut shakes for $3.00 a day, and we were happy to have the $3.00,” he explained. “We lived on a few thousand dollars a year. We lived on commodities, hunting and fishing. The priorities were making the family whole and feeding everybody.

“A lot of times I didn’t start school in the fall, I had to work and take care of my family,” Steve recalled. “My dad used to fish in Alaska, he used to start in June and go to November, so I got out of school early and started late. But I didn’t know I was poor.”

In his youth, Steve said, unemployment was about 80%. Then in the 1990s Tulalip built a bingo hall.

“The tribe didn’t even have an office until around 1965, and I think we had two or three employees, my mom was one of the employees they hired,” he said. “People didn’t fit in on the outside. There was no place for them to make money, the whole reservation economy was non-existent.”

Although there is always room for growth, Steve is grateful and astonished at what has been accomplished during his lifetime.

“It may seem to a lot of people that we don’t get paid enough, but look at what the tribe has given us, just in the last 20 years. It amazes me,” Steve described a few of the programs now provided. “We’ve funded healthcare, pharmaceuticals, mental health and drug and alcohol programs to help us overcome 200 years of poverty. We have money to pay per-capita payments to our people.

“No one needs to be starving or without a job. This is not the world that I knew growing up. It’s hard for me to look at my kids, even though I wanted them to have what I didn’t, and know they didn’t have the opportunity to experience living on the beach for food and to stay alive. Some of the bonding we did as a family and as a reservation, that really made us strong and we need to find a way to bring that back to our community.”

While some see addiction and social disorder as the pitfalls of prosperity, Steve says those dangers always existed. But now we have a chance to shape our future.

“The killer drug in 1970 was Rainier Beer,” he said. “Today it’s meth and heroin. But the things that stem from addiction are the same; child abuse, not feeling safe in the home, they’re the same now as then, but now there are more of us and it costs more to deal with it.

“But, with economic development,” Steve continued, “I think we have an opportunity to change the past and create a new vision for the future. Where kids don’t have to be hurt and people don’t have to go through those things. We can bring back some of that community pride to the tribe.

“A lot of what we’ve put into the ground, past Board of Directors, John McCoy, I can see it’s a future here, a future for my kids and grandkids and their kids. We’re building a sustainable economy so that our children don’t have to deal with the economic issues that we had. We’re the second largest employer in Snohomish County now. It’s been rewarding to be here.”

Right now, Steve can’t quite envision what the tribe will look like in a hundred years or more. But, family and culture, he described, have to be part of the future.

“I grew up and raised my family with the assumption that the reservation would always be a cultural center for our people,” he said. “But the sheer growth and population over the next 50 to 100 years is going to take that natural resource away from us. We’re going to have to find another way to be culturally connected to our past without fishing, hunting and the things that are the core of who we are. It’s going to be a challenge for our future leaders to take what’s best of the past and bring it forward to make a place for our people.”

Asked what teaching he’d like to leave for future generations, Steve said, “Take pride in yourself, work for your tribe’s future and the rewards that you will get will be enriching and last forever.”

Steve’s last day is July 1st. Like all of our leaders, I have no doubts that for the rest of his days, Steve will be looking out for the tribe and teaching future leaders what it means to be Tulalip. Happy retirement, Steve.

Tulalip Chairman Mel Sheldon delivers State of the Tribes Address

by Brandi N. Montreuil, Tulalip News

Mel SheldonTULALIP, Wash. – Tulalip Tribes Chairman Mel Sheldon delivered the State of the Tribes address on Friday, April 26th, to the Greater Marysville Tulalip Commerce where he credited a partnership built on understanding with the City of Marysville and surrounding cities for a thriving economy the region is experiencing.

Six years ago, the Tulalip Tribes and the City of Marysville signed a Government Alliance, outlining levels of cooperation and collaboration to secure a stable economy for both parties.

“We have worked to share a strong government-to-government relationship, and I am proud to say that six years into the agreement, we are making progress towards a shared vision for how our cities, businesses, and governments can work together to achieve the very best for the future of our region,” stated Sheldon.

Both Tulalip and Marysville communities are flourishing as local businesses profit from tourism. Larger corporations are utilizing the Tulalip Resort Casino, earning it a host of awards declaring it a prime destination in the region.

Last year the Washington Lodge Association named the Tulalip Resort as Hotel of the Year and the resort received the AAA Four Diamond Rating, a distinction that goes to the top seven hotel establishments in the state. Trip Advisor awarded the Tulalip Resort Casino the 2012 Award of Excellence, while King 5 named it Best Casino of the Year and Smart Meeting named it the best hotel with meeting space.

The hotel boasts 100 percent occupancy during the weekends and an 88 percent occupancy overall; 27 percent of that is filled by tourists from Canada.

Future projects planned for this year are the mid-July opening of Journeys East, which will feature Asian-fusion cuisine, and a new sports bar called the Draft, which will open later this year.

With the addition of Cabela’s and Olive Garden in the Quil Ceda Business Park, revenue and jobs increased making it possible for future infrastructure projects such as the 116th Street overpass, and the Big Water Project to support the growth the area has experienced lately.

“We have $250 million dollars of investments outlined in our strategic plan for the area; developing and improving infrastructure being just one area.”

“There is need to improve safety and mobility at the 116th Street NE interchange on I-5. We have collaborated with WSDOT, Snohomish County, Community Transit, and the City of Marysville to solve this regional transportation problem. Currently the Tulalip Tribes and partners are putting together a joint funding package to complete construction of the final phases of this project, starting in late 2013,” said Sheldon.

Work on the Big Water Project continues and is expected to begin pumping water soon. Work on the Qwuloot Estuary Restoration Project, a partnership between the tribe, state and federal agencies, and City of Marysville, can soon expect celebration on groundbreaking engineering work that will help to restore the habitat vital to the survival of salmon.

“The benefits of this project go beyond salmon recovery. In our shared vision to create truly livable communities, we must also work to provide protection and preservation of the natural resources and the environment,” explained Sheldon.

Other projects planned for this year include the 90,000 additional square feet at the Seattle Premium Outlets, which are expected to house 14-20 new stores. Construction for the project will begin once a water line is installed behind the Quil Ceda Village in July.

The space between Cabela’s and Home Depot could potentially be a ‘restaurant row’ providing additional dining options for visitors.

“Here at Tulalip we strive for self-sufficiency. While our treaty guaranteed certain things, the federal government came up short on their end of the deal. Hence, an opportunity to provide those services, via gaming, has helped close the gap,” said Sheldon.

“Revenue created by gaming and other tribal enterprises support many programs within the tribe. Education, housing, tutoring, health clinic, Elder care program, police department, court system, roads, infrastructure, Boys & Girls Club support, family services, youth services, and many other aspects that contribute to a better quality of life. The bottom line is that we reinvest right back into our community. One of the most valuable resources we have is the people who work so hard to make all this happen,” he continued.

Tulalip Tribes provides 3, 500 direct jobs and 5,000 indirectly, with roughly 70 percent of the workforce who live off reservation and are non-tribal. Tulalip enterprises pay nearly $120 million in annual wages. In 2012 the state of Washington collected $40 million in taxes from the tribe’s gaming and business operations and $100 million in the last five years. The tribe donated 5.6 million dollars to over 225 organizations and nonprofits last year in accordance with the Washington State Gaming Pact.
