About the Sample Project
The sample project explores the perceptions of development, environmental change and land-use change on 13 coastal communities in the Down East area of Carteret County, North Carolina, USA. In recent years, the Down East area has attracted tourism, migration to the coast by retirees and second homeowners. As a result, associated development is having profound impact on the character, economy, culture and environment of Down East. The goal of the project is to help communities, developers and planners envision long-term strategies for sustainable land use and development.
