THE LEGAL IMPLEMENTATION OF COASTAL ZONE MANAGEMENT: THE NORTH CAROLINA MODEL

An alternative mechanism is described for states that are in the process of instituting regional land use planning for the purpose of protecting valuable resources and critical environmental areas and are faced with the problem of how to implement their plans. This mechanism involves the coordinated use of traditional mechanisms of influencing land use through government regulation, taxing, and acquisition. This land use guidance mechanism can be instituted largely without additional legislation. To realize the full potential of this method, however, legal reforms are needed, especially on the local level. The keys to the success of such an approach are integrovernmental cooperation by federal, state, and local decision-makings, and the awareness of their respective powers and the functions of these powers within the land use guidance system.
