$40 Million Coastal Resort?

Record #:
North Carolina possesses one of the last remaining wilderness areas along the Atlantic Coast. It's called Smith Island, more popularly known as Bald Head. Locals are debating its future. Conservationists hope to create a maritime preserve, while Frank Sherrill envisions a huge resort and residential community. Sherrill, the owner of the island, plans to build the resort and create a town on the island complete with the proper infrastructure. This sub-tropical island attracts fisherman and nature watchers yearly since it remained uninhabited prior to the 1960s.
