A development company hopes to sell about 4 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.
