The Consolidated Borough of Quil Ceda Village, located on the Tulalip Indian Reservation in Washington State, is a thriving municipal and corporate body of the Tulalip Tribes.
The local government of the Consolidated Borough of Quil Ceda Village and the very successful Quil Ceda Village business park are key to building and sustaining the Tulalip culture and regional economy.
We have been working on a new Quil Ceda Village Master Plan for many months. I want to thank everyone who completed a survey (300 surveys were completed) on the first iteration of the new plan. The master plan has been revised and further developed based on this public input. I invite you again to participate in updating and developing a new master plan for Quil Ceda Village by completing another survey on the updated plan.
The Tulalip Tribes created Quil Ceda Village as a municipal corporation (the first of its kind in the U.S.) charted by the Tribes under its constitutional authority. The Village was conceived over 20 years ago when Tribal leadership created the first master plan and developed the infrastructure to attract private businesses and generate revenue to support the Tulalip culture and economy.
Our vision has always been to provide a quality environment for people to visit, to be entertained, to shop, and to work in the interest of the greater society. We are now building on that initial work 20-years ago and our success to ensure that Quil Ceda Village remains prosperous and further develops based on the interests of Tribal members and market conditions.
I ask that you read our brief vision brochure entitled Quil Ceda Village Tomorrow and respond to a few survey questions. Your responses and feedback will be used to further develop the vison and master plan for the Village of tomorrow.
Thank you in advance for helping guide the future for Quil Ceda Village.
The 116th Street / I-5 interchange traffic volumes on the off ramps and on 116th ST NE is reducing mobility and causing significant delays during peak hours. Regional growth is expected to increase congestion even further. Current traffic conditions warrant the replacement of the existing overpass with a wider bridge carrying more through and turn lanes, bike lanes, and sidewalks across I-5 to improve the interchange operations. The anticipated completion of the project will be in fall 2016. Stay informed by visiting the project website at: http://projects.tulaliptribes-nsn.gov/116th-interchange.
