As I mentioned last week on this blog, last week we were in Beaufort, South Carolina working on implementing their Transfer of Development Rights program. Our visit there got some press in the local paper. The article covers a meeting we had with local landowners in Beaufort, who were subjects of a downzoning because of their proximity to the Beaufort Marine Corps Air Station. The local governments and the air station are limiting density in the flight zone due to noise and safety concerns. The TDR program is a mechanism for allowing landowners to recoup the development potential of their land by sending it to city areas where more density is appropriate. I'll continue to blog about this project as it progresses.
