" that" modifies " communities" so IMO, the verb after "that" must be plural and we must use " their" in front of " waterfronts". I choose E .
btw, can anyone point out what is the difference between phrasal verbs " look to" and " look at"?!

I think D is OK. Each of the many communities are looking to its options.

OE is C... so is 'one of a large number' plural? What are the rules concerning number/amount? I always thought they were singular.

"looking to their waterfronts" is idiomatic and appropriate because the communities are primarily focusing on the regions as potential lucrative business attractions. Many big cosmopolitan coastal cities do the same thing in order to improve their image and beckon tourists... Think Sydney, LA, SF, NY, Chicago, Seattle, Honolulu, etc.

I've just looked up: " look to" may means "pay attention to, take care of" -----> it's reasonable for C to be correct.
