NEWS & FAQS
As Tribal leaders, it’s our mission to improve the community and the economy in Oregon. Designated federal trust land in 2000, we have spent several years developing a comprehensive Intertribal Project that will allow us the opportunity to build a casino on our reservation to benefit all Oregonians for years to come.
Unlike every other gaming facility in the state, this project will financially benefit every corner of the state. It will give an unprecedented 25% of net revenues to state and local government. Additionally, by creating revenue sharing with each participating tribe, the casino will provide much needed financial resources for tribes, regardless of where they are located. Locally, the casino will create to over 1,200 permanent living wage jobs and generate $185 million in annual revenue the first year of operation, growing to $231 million by the third year.
Partnership is critical to broadening our impact on the economy in Oregon and the communities where we live, work and play. We know that when Tribes work together, we can do more for our community. It is our intent and desire to garner partnership of all eight Oregon Tribes so that we can allocate 50% of the annual revenue of the casino among the entire Tribal community.
Our intent is to begin construction in 2022. The construction of the facility will cost approximately $231 million and generate approximately 2,300 jobs and millions of investments in local business support. It is our priority to work closely with the city of Salem, federal regulators and the entire community ahead of breaking ground to ensure we mitigate and minimize any disruptions associated with construction.
The casino will be conveniently located off of I-5 on exit 258 in North Salem. The 180,000-foot facility will cost approximately $231 million to build and will be home to a 4-star hotel, restaurant and entertainment options and 2,000 gaming devices and 45 table games.
The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians is a confederation of all the Tribes of western Oregon. In the 1800s Siletz ancestors were removed from their homelands and moved to the Siletz Reservation on the coast. Its Tribal headquarters is located in Siletz, Oregon and the Tribe has operated government offices in Salem, Portland, Eugene, Lincoln City and Siletz for over 40 years.
