Plans for the site include a Tribal Cultural Center, which will highlight the historic significance of the Spokane Tribe in this region; a large hotel, resort and casino; family friendly activities; commercial retail uses; office space, and medical and counseling facilities. The site also will accommodate appropriate parking space.

"We are extremely pleased with the support our proposal has received from all sectors of the community - elected leadership, business and non-profit organizations," Abrahamson said. "They all recognize the cultural opportunities, job creation and economic stimulus it will provide -- especially in these difficult times. They also recognize the provisions in State Law that all Tribes must be treated fairly and equally in projects like this," Abrahamson added. " />

Spokane Tribe moving forward with development in West Plains

— Progress continues at a swift pace for a major economic development project in the Airway Heights area by the Spokane Tribe of Indians. Regulatory processing and site planning are continuing on schedule for a proposed 145-acre mixed-use development on Spokane tribal-owned trust land adjacent to the City of Airway Heights.

Tribal Council Chairman, Greg Abrahamson, reports that the Tribe is working closely with representatives of the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs and the State of Washington to complete required paperwork to obtain all necessary approvals by mid-2011. "The mixed-use project will bring a multi-million dollar economic boost to Airway Heights, Spokane County and the surrounding area," Abrahamson said. He added that the project is expected to generate some 850 new jobs, not just for Tribal members but also for the regional employment base. It will be one of the area's largest employers.

Plans for the site include a Tribal Cultural Center, which will highlight the historic significance of the Spokane Tribe in this region; a large hotel, resort and casino; family friendly activities; commercial retail uses; office space, and medical and counseling facilities. The site also will accommodate appropriate parking space.

"We are extremely pleased with the support our proposal has received from all sectors of the community - elected leadership, business and non-profit organizations," Abrahamson said. "They all recognize the cultural opportunities, job creation and economic stimulus it will provide -- especially in these difficult times. They also recognize the provisions in State Law that all Tribes must be treated fairly and equally in projects like this," Abrahamson added.
