Tribe could expand its possibilities

I would like to see the Muckleshoot Tribe develop a first-class regional resort on all of that land they own adjacent to the casino.

They could build a five-star hotel. They could build a bigger, better Great Wolf Lodge-style indoor water park. They could build a permanent venue for a Cirque du Soleil show, or something equivalent. They could build at least five high-quality, year-round amusement park rides. Whatever they do, they should be top-end and able to be enjoyed year-round.

The Muckleshoots have the land and the finances to make a tremendous impact on the future of Auburn. If they built a top-quality entertainment resort, it could draw people from throughout the region to come stay and spend money in Auburn. This is something that could add to the tax revenues and create jobs.

Imagine, Auburn as the entertainment capital of the region. It has the Muckleshoot Casino, Emerald Downs, Pacific Raceways, the Auburn Golf Course, the Washington National Golf Course, the White River Amphitheatre and hopefully a top-notch destination resort next to the casino.

Visitors who come and stay in Auburn could easily take excursions for skiing or whitewater rafting, or a visit to a National Park, or Seattle.

It could be very attractive if done correctly and marketed correctly.
