On March 7, approval was given to the Tulalip Tribes to build an in-patient residential behavioral health treatment facility just north of Stanwood city limits.
A conditional use permit was issued by Snohomish County Hearing Examiner Peter Camp to construct a secure 32-bed facility on 15.5 acres owned by the tribes at 29919 80th Avenue NW, near 300th Street NW.
As part of a sales tax sharing compact with the state, Tulalip Tribes will spend up to $35 million to build the facility, and in return, keep millions in sales tax revenue generated at the tribe’s Quil Ceda shopping center.
The Washington State Health Care Authority will hire a behavioral health operator to run the treatment site.
The facility will serve adult patients who are involuntarily committed by court order for stays between 90 and 180 days and adults who commit themselves to inpatient treatment.
In an interview with the Stanwood Camano News last September, Karen Panek, Washington state Health Care Authority section manager for Adult and Involuntary Services stated the facility will not serve sex offenders or others who are currently in the criminal justice system.
