Bill Sheets reports in the Everett (WA) Herald that Tulalip Tribes and the city of Marysville have pledged greater cooperation between the two jurisdictions. Transportation and economic development, in particular, are two subjects in which the tribe and city can work more effectively together, officials said.
The $6.4 million road project is part of a $54.2 million plan to improve traffic flow in a particularly congested part of Snohomish County. Marysville is about 35 miles north of Seattle.
The accord was inspired in part by past development, in which adjacent projects of the tribe or the city were poorly coordinated.
