Adapting to a dynamic environment
Coastal areas are susceptible to a diverse and variable array of natural hazards. Our experience in coastal planning creates strategies to understand, combat, and adapt to these hazards in a way that preserves local assets and financial stability.
Honoring the coastal context
Coastal areas are fundamentally different from mainland communities and each one is unique. Oceanfront, inner coastal, riverine, and bay communities all have different challenges and opportunities. We have the breadth and depth of knowledge and perspective to reveal these distinctions in a plan that supports local quality of life.
Satisfying state requirements
According to the Coastal Area Management Act, the State of North Carolina requires local governments to maintain a current CAMA land use plan in order to continue issuing local CAMA permits for development requests that impact coastal resources. Our planners understand these requirements and can help create a CAMA land use plan that meets state requirements and also advances local priorities and goals.
