COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) — A development company hopes to sell about four million cubic yards of sand from a 69-acre property in Coos Bay and then build a 500-unit housing project.

Ocean Grove Development Group sees a growing demand for sand for big construction projects and because of the special sand used in hydraulic fracturing drilling for natural gas.

But other businesses that sell sand in the area told The World (http://is.gd/wiO6SC ) they have not seen a market for sand outside of local construction.
