How to use "Bone to pick" in context?

Property developers in a sleepy town are fighting tooth and nail to keep their neighbourhoods from being designated as historic districts, but some citizens see the preservation movement as a way to keep outsiders from changing the character of the town.

"It's like we're being forced to pick a bone with our heritage," said resident Dianne Larkin. "I know people who've moved out of the town because they can't stand the change."

Larkin and other residents fear that if the historic districts are created, businesses in the town will go out of business and the town's quaint charm will be lost forever.
