Description - The TDR Handbook by Arthur C. Nelson
"Transfer of Development Rights" (TDR) programs allow local governments to employ economic principles to encourage good land use planning. TDR programs most often permit landowners to forfeit development rights in areas targeted for preservation and then sell those development rights to buyers who want to build high-density projects in designated growth areas. The TDR Handbook is the first comprehensive guide to every aspect of TDR programs, from the thinking behind them to the nuts and bolts of implementation-including statutory guidance, model ordinances, suggestions for program administration, and comparisons with other types of preservation programs.
