Week in review: Consolidation, McClendon

State Boundary Commission Chairman Dennis Schornack, left, talks about consolidation on Wednesday in Okemos.
• Two long-simmering issues in the Saugatuck-Douglas area began to cook a little faster this past week:

The State Boundary Commission approved consolidating Saugatuck and Douglas cities — not Saugatuck Township.

The Saugatuck Township Zoning Board of Appeals held the first public hearing on plans for development of 310 acres of duneland north of the Kalamazoo River.

• The city of Fennville is starting its own police department — albeit a one-person operation.

• As the elections approach, don’t forget to check out the Allegan County races.

• Saugatuck city is now overseeing a $450,000 endowment for the Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area.
