Michigan Beaches: Public Space

(Via NYT) Michigan courts have ruled in favor of public space and free access, siding with Joan M. Glass in determining that to take a walk along the beach is not trespassing. Michigan beach walkers can now freely wander anywhere between the water's edge and the ordinary high water mark on any of the state's lakes without fear of reprisal or restriction from lakefront property owners. About 70% of Michigan's shoreline on Lakes Michigan, Huron, and Erie is privately owned.
