Oceanfront Development Has its Setbacks


Author(s):
Abstract:
Despite the risks of beach erosion and encroaching ocean, North Carolina's beaches are being developed at rapid rates. To prevent continual loss of property, North Carolina adopted its first ocean setback regulation in 1979 under the Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA); this management program prevents buildings within sixty feet of the ocean, and controversy over this setback rule is making headlines.
