The Coastal Resources Commission, or CRC, was
created when the General Assembly adopted the Coastal Area Management Act in 1974.
CRC establishes policies for the N.C. Coastal Management Program and adopts implementing
rules for both CAMA and the N.C. Dredge and Fill Act. The commission designates areas of
environmental concern, adopts rules and policies for coastal development within those
areas, and certifies local land-use plans. Learn more.
