Here’s an update on a property right issue – Saugatuck Dunes

22 Feb 2011

Last year, I blogged about an ongoing dispute regarding a large parcel of duneland that a developer wanted to develop in Saugatuck on the west side of the State.  The Wall Street Journal has picked up the story as it has evolved into a zoning-takings dispute.

Now, I enjoy visiting Saugatuck with my family and think it has a lot of small town charm. Will this development change it? I don’t know. I think the folks in Petoskey near the Bay Harbor development are generally happy to have it in their neighborhood.

At the end of the day, if the government wanted to preserve the land, why didn’t it do so when it had the chance?
