The increasing development pressure on coastal lands and waters raises issues that involve federal, state and local laws, regulations and ordinances. To explore these topics, the Center produces Legal Tides, a free newsletter that examines legal and planning issues as they relate to North Carolina’s coastal area and the Atlantic Ocean. Articles present a balanced and informative analysis of issues.
