Economic Impact | Tulalip Tribes

Bringing economic development through innovation.

The Tulalip Tribes own and operate a strategic and diversified collection of enterprises on the lands west of I-5 near Marysville. From gaming to shopping, fine dining to entertainment, we have found many ways to help drive the economy and create jobs for the region while maintaining the core values of our Tribes.

“The Tulalip Tribes established Quil Ceda Village the second federally-chartered city in the United States (Washington D.C. is the other). Our business park and municipality from a bustling, growing commercial center. The Tulalip Resort Casino (TRC) is central to this enterprise, with a hotel and busy conference center, that attracts thousands to the area each day. Further tribal businesses include two gas stations, two convenience stores, and Tulalip Data Services and Salish Networks, the telecommunications businesses of the Tribes. Tulalip—which includes the Tribal government, Quil Ceda Village, and TRC—directly employs over 3,500 members of this community.” – Mel Sheldon, Chairman of the Board

Our goal is to continue to build prosperity in a way that also respects and preserves our family values, culture, history, and lifeways. Over the next several years plans for future master planned communities, cultural resources, and economic development will also expand our role as a community citizen with traffic improvements and other partnerships in support of Marysville and Everett.
