New Bern, NC – There's no question that change is on the horizon and already underway for many coastal communities in Eastern North Carolina. There's also no question that area residents have strong opinions both for and against development. Researchers at Duke Marine Lab in Beaufort are launching a two-year study aimed at documenting community perceptions of development and land-use change on coastal communities Down East.
