TDR workshop Jan. 29.

The City of Milton Community Development Department will hold a Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) workshop Tuesday, Jan. 29 beginning at 5 p.m.

The meeting will take place in Council Chambers of Milton's City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107 (click here for directions, click here for a map of City Hall).

The purpose of this meeting is to educate the equestrian community and land owners of more than five acres about the TDR options available to Milton residents.

The TDR program allows a landowner to transfer the rights to development from his parcel to increase the development rights on a different parcel of land. In effect, TDRs protect large swaths of land from future development while guiding smart growth and density in areas defined by the community. An award-winning TDR ordinance is already in place in Crabapple (click here for more information), and another is proposed for the city's main commercial corridor on Ga. 9 and Deerfield Parkway (click here for more information).

The department will have both a TDR expert and the city attorney on hand to discuss the details and process of submitting properties to the city for consideration of TDR status.
