Warm Springs Ventures Key in Economic Recovery


Part of the story of economic recovery may include the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.  Last week, Economic Analyst Delore Zimmerman had a list of almost a dozen initiatives to spur this recovery. One included more partnerships with the Tribe. One reason is to take advantage of their preferential procurement contracts with the federal government: “I would say it's a renewed effort.” Tribe CEO Jody Colica says past projects include the Pelton-Rround Butte Dam, and the Deschutes Basin Water Alliance. Projects now on the table include developing a new cement, impervious to salt water that sets up underwater. It's part of the design for the fireproof doors that Warm Springs Wood Products sold to Dubai. Jeff Onspach is with Warm Springs Ventures: “We are already kind of doing it. We are at the point we need to look at expanding.”
