“support added density. In spite of those challenges, TDR zoning can work. For example, in Montgomery County, adjacent to Washington D.C., TDR zoning has protected 40,000 acres in 20 years, achieving half the area’s farmland preservation goal without any public spending.

It used TDRs to protect existing farms and the farming way of life by letting a conservancy organization oversee the purchase of development rights.” 0 likes
