Several legal issues still surround an effort to preserve hundreds of acres of Saugatuck-area dune land for public use.
One of them involves an expensive house built on the property. Ken Denison testified Monday during a trial in an Allegan County courtroom that he wants to retire to the 5,400-square-foot home.
He started building it more than 15 years ago on his parents' 412-acre property. It sits alongside Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Kalamazoo River channel.
The trial is to determine the value of the home. It's expected to wrap up Wednesday.
The outcome may begin to resolve disagreements between the separate estates of his late parents regarding the dune land.
