The Project


The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians (LRBOI) 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. The Tribe is planning to place 60 acres of its site in Fruitport Township in a “trust” for casino development.

The Benefits


A Tribal casino would be an economic catalyst for the region and for Michigan, and will:

  • Create an estimated 215 indirect construction jobs
  • Create an estimated 1,201 direct jobs
  • $180 million LRBOI investment will encourage growth
  • Provide a steady flow of revenue for the Michigan School Aid Fund
  • Insure that a Muskegon tribal casino would contribute to state and local revenues at the highest rate of any tribal casino in the state
  • Will expand year-round tourism (see the Muskegon Chronicle editorial).
