The purpose of this guidebook is to provide information about transferable development rights (TDR) for communities considering adoption of a TDR program. This book defines the basic elements of TDR and explains how these programs can be used to balance the competing goals of land preservation and development. It is designed to prepare communities to get involved with their local planning process and shape TDR programs to best fit their needs.
