Program to Focus on TDR
NW News Staff
The King County Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) Program, a proposed land use management tool, will be the focus of a moderated show to be aired on Public Access Channel 29 (TCI) Wednesday, Aug. 20th from 6:30 to 7 p.m. The program will be one in a series presented by Forward Focus to inform citizens about countrywide issues.
TDR is a tool to limit new housing units and transfer the right to build those units to more urban areas. This is done through the private market purchase and sale of "development rights." The TDR Program is working to identify lands that should be preserved as well as areas that could absorb more density.
