The Chippewas of Kettle & Stony Point First Nation has announced plans for major developments that include a hotel and heritage centre.

Chief Tom Bressette told county councillors Wednesday they want to build a three-storey hotel and conference centre across from Indian Hills Golf Course on Lakeshore Rd.

He’s asking the county to consider reducing the speed limit near the golf course from 80km/h to 50km/h.

Bressette says he doesn’t see why cottagers and area residents would oppose the plan.

A heritage centre featuring an Ojibwa village is proposed for the former Ipperwash Provincial Park.

Kettle & Stony Point is still awaiting federal transfer of the park following the conclusion of the Ipperwash Inquiry in 2007.
