The Etowah Initiative

In 1998 the state of Georgia passed enabling legislation which authorizes local jurisdictions to implement transferable development rights (TDR) programs in their communities. This report offers an introduction to transferable development rights and presents a series of case studies of TDR programs around the United States. These experiences should be helpful to local governments in Georgia that are considering creating their own TDR programs.
