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 has published 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.
