Resident Joan Motts tells WNDU-TV that she's fine with the tribe's plans for housing units and health service facilities, but objects to the possible casino.

WSBT-TV reports St. Joseph County Commissioner David Thomas says he believes the project would be a boost for the area's economy and a magnet for future development.

The tribe owns the major Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Mich., about 30 miles from South Bend.
