The purchase does not include Snoqualmie Falls.

Snoqualmie Tribe buys Salish Lodge and adjacent land for $125 million, halting nearby development

It's a purchase from the Muckleshoot Tribe

My best friends live near there. I wonder what growth they are talking about stopping?

So, was the land on the west side of the falls, or on the East side of the lodge?

Ya.  The locals weren't happy about those builds.  This has got to be chapping the mayors ass.  EVERYBODY around there thinks she corrupt.  LOL

I like how the headline makes it sound like the Tribe saved the land from some evil developer, then buried in the story you see that it was actually another tribe that was going to develop the land.  dizzy.gif

Do you know that the Muckleshoot Tribe was not working in cooperation with the city developers?   Does the fact they are a tribal development company make them less or more "evil" than non-native companies?  Not sure of what point you're trying to make.

I think it would be great to see PSE out of the picture too.

Just a bit of irony in the headline.  If the land was the Muckleshoot Tribe's to sell and they were not working in cooperation with the city developers, then why did the Snoqualmie tribe need to purchase it to save it?
