Cover of Transfer of Development Rights Commission Reports

In 2015, Secretary David R. Craig created and convened a Transfer of Development Rights Committee including county executives and county commission presidents from counties that use these land preservation programs. The goal of the committee was to compare local Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) programs in Maryland, jointly develop a model TDR approach, and identify and seek to remove obstacles to implementing a successful local program.
