The Siletz Salem Casino Project Takes Center Stage at Tribal Town Hall

In early November, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians hosted an exclusive town hall for enrolled Tribal members on the progress of the Siletz Salem Casino Project. Chairman Delores Pigsley updated members from the Salem and Keizer communities on the project authorization timeline, the economic benefits of the project, and how casino revenue will help enhance the lives of Siletz Tribal members.

The townhall started with an overview of the Siletz Salem Casino Project, emphasizing its significance as a transformative force for the local economy.  The project is a unique opportunity to invest in the local Salem community, and local small businesses will play a significant role. During the two-year construction phase, the project will generate about 2,300 jobs and $141 million in wages, stimulate $492 million in economic impact and produce $54 million in indirect purchases or spending through supply chains in the local economy.

Tribal members expressed overwhelming support for the Siletz Salem Casino Project.  According to a survey conducted in April, 66% of the Salem and Keizer communities support the project. Support has grown steadily from 57% in 2017, when we started testing public support.
