Last year the DEQ rejected G-Bro’s permit application to build an access road across the White River Critical Dunes Sanctuary to gain access to a landlocked property with 200 feet of lakefront.
G-Bro, a real estate developer, subsequently sued the township seeking an easement. The recent agreement puts further legal action on hold, and gives the township 18 months to raise $900,000 and buy the G-Pro property. The township plans to seek both private and public funding for the purchase.
