Battles expected over dune developments in Michigan

Lead in text: 
The state has 50 applicants for developments in dune areas. Michigan has 80,000 acres of publicly held dune areas
When Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation in August easing restrictions on development in critical sand dune areas, it set the stage for battles across the state between private property owners and conservation groups. Today, the first major dunes fight will be joined in Muskegon County's White River Township.
