On October 15, 2015, more than 500 people attended the public hearing for the Muskegon County casino project proposed by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians. The community and local leaders have expressed overwhelming support for this important economic development project.

The Tribe plans to develop a casino in its southern tribal territory in Muskegon County. The proposed gaming site is at the former Great Lakes Downs racetrack site in Fruitport Township. A casino would be a great addition to Muskegon County’s numerous tourist attractions. With its largest population base in the Muskegon region, the Tribe’s goals are job creation and economic development. The proposed Tribal casino is expected to generate approximately 1,200 jobs.
