The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation has signed a Cooperation Agreement with the Port of Pasco regarding the Tribes’ economic development efforts in Pasco. The Colville Tribes owns approximately 184 acres of land in Pasco and is developing the site for future business ventures.
The Cooperation Agreement includes a commitment by the Port of Pasco to officially support the Tribes’ Pasco project and assures that the Port is kept informed about the progress of this effort. This agreement follows other agreements with the City of Pasco and the Franklin County PUD as the Tribes pursues cooperation and collaboration with local government entities.
Colville Business Council Chairman Andrew C. Joseph, Jr., said today, “We are pleased to sign this Cooperation Agreement with the Port of Pasco. It has long been our goal to bring the Palus Tribe back to their ancestral lands. The Colville Tribes will be a good neighbor and this economic development project will significantly benefit the local economy by adding jobs, tourism, and new businesses to the area. This project is a win for all involved.”
Port of Pasco Commission President, Vicki Gordon, said today, “The primary objective of the Port of Pasco is to grow the economy by creating opportunities for investment and growth. We see our agreement with the Colville Tribes as an opportunity to welcome a new neighbor and to expand Franklin County’s economy.”
