who made it all possible for us to make it this far. With offerings in hand Tribal Chairman Michael Hunter thanked our tribal Elders for their wisdom and for laying the foundation to which we are able to build upon and former Tribal Council Members for the many hours and hard work they put in to building the Pomo Nation we have today.
We are proud to be able to bring our Membership together to make new memories and celebrate great beginnings. Our Tribe has been blessed by the Creator and we thank everyone who came and participated in this momentous event. Coyote Valley is moving up and going forward with good things.
GRAND OPENING OF COYOTE VALLEY’S ONE STOP SHOP
The 6,500 sq. ft. structure features a wide array of modern and innovative amenities, including the lowest gas prices in the region – with eight gas pumps for automobiles and an additional four pumps for RVs and semi-trucks. As part of the Grand Opening festivities guests can use their Coyote Club Card to get five cents off per gallon. Guests who do not have a club card can sign up for free to receive five cents off that day. Guests can also enter to win free gas for a year.
In addition, Coyote Valley One Stop Shop will house the area’s first drive-through window for cigarettes and tobacco, a walk-in “beer cave,” and open-air cooler, with freshly made soups, sandwiches and other popular grab-and-go food items stocked daily.
The One Stop Shop’s adjacent gaming room, popularly referred to as the “mini casino,” will be the Tribe’s second gaming facility. The 50 slot machine facility will offer gaming to patrons 18 years and older, along with a smoke-free environment in which to play.
The new One Stop Shop will be the first Tribal business owned and operated by Coyote Valley Retail Enterprises [CVRE], a corporate subdivision of the Coyote Economic Development Corporation [CEDCO]. The Tribe formed CEDCO and CVRE to promote Tribal economic development, Tribal member employment and self-sufficiency. The Tribe expects the store will provide 12-16 new jobs, and all profits from the store will be used for the benefit of the Tribe and its Tribal members.
NEW PLAYGROUND STRUCTURE FOR COYOTE VALLEY PARK
(September 24, 2015) -Coyote Valley Tribal Council is pleased to announce the approval of a new commercial play structure for tribal housing and park area to be completed mid October.
The $38,000 project includes a new seesaw, tire bouncer, horizontal ladder, benches and barbeques. The new play structure will offer 10 activities for up to 55 children ages 5-12.The playground area will also have a refurbished basketball court and new landscaping with wood chips, containment boarders, new fencing and overhead lighting. The installation and landscaping project is projected to provide employment for 5 tribal members.
Building the internal capacity of our people is the best investment we can make as a Tribe. By developing trade skills of our members they will qualify for more jobs on and off the reservation. We hope to be able to continue providing vocational education courses like construction trades, business technologies and hospitality services to our Tribal Members.
