Saugatuck Residents Turn Out in Force to Oppose Development

A large group of interested people attended Wednesday evening's meeting to share their views on the plan of Oklahoma billionaire Aubrey McClendon to build homes on the dune property.

The land was zoned R-4, allowing one house on every five acres, at about the time McClendon completed his purchase. He claims he was not properly notified, and that he has the right to build one house on every 1.5 acres.

Residents support the township's R-4 zoning. They cite the natural beauty of the area as one of the greatest resources for attracting tourists.

The Saugatuck Township Board was scheduled to vote on an agreement with the developer at Wednesday's meeting, but the township board tabled it instead.
