On Tuesday, July 26, the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians (“LRBOI” or “Tribe”) announced its plan to build 300 new homes in a 120-acre housing development in Fruitport Township, MI. According to the Tribe, the development will be open to the general public with homes ranging from starter homes of $150,000 to larger homes costing $300,000. The proposal was presented to the Fruitport Township Planning Commission and marks the first stage in the approval process.

“Our goal was to work with the local community to develop a unique village that offers homes of different sizes and amenities for first time home buyers, retirees and growing families in the area,” said Larry Romanelli, Tribal Ogema of the Little river Band of Ottawa Indians. “We believe that people will enjoy living in energy efficient homes in a community with ponds, parks, natural areas and walkways.”

The 120-acre development will be called “Odeno,” and the land was acquired from Fruitport Community Schools earlier this year.

After approval, the Tribe plans to begin construction by the end of the year. The project will be completed in five phases, the first of which will include the construction of 115 homes.
