Learn about steps taken in the 1980s by Kill Devil Hills and private property owners to protect oceanfront structures from being lost to shoreline erosion. Meet former Mayor Lowell Perry, Dare County Commissioner Warren Judge, KDH Planning Director Greg Loy and former Sea Ranch Hotel owner Cliff Blakely in this informative and historical video.
