Will Cook and I are headed to Beaufort, South Carolina this week to assist in the implementation of their Transfer of Development Rights program. I have been working with various jurisdictions in Georgia on TDRs since the clinic started in 2002. In fact, one of our first projects was drafting a TDR ordinance for Chattahoochee Hill Country. Since then I've worked with TDR expert Rick Pruetz and other faculty here at UGA on TDR feasibility studies for other Georgia counties.
This time Rick and I have joined forced with Bill Fulton (a planner so famous he has his own Wikipedia page) and his crackerjack staff at DC&E consulting (particularly Aaron Engstrom, who specializes in TDR work).
Beaufort's TDR program is interesting for a number of reasons. It will be an inter-jurisdictional program with the City of Beaufort and the Town of Port Royal. It also has twin goals, to conserve agricultural land and to protect the overflight zone of the Marine Corps Air Station.
We'll have more to report as this project progresses. Also, if Will brings a digital camera, maybe we'll even have some pictures! This is a beautiful area - and where many movies have been filmed, most famously The Big Chill.
