County to meet on Development rights transfer
The County Commission will hold a workshop from 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 16 to discuss the possible creation of a "Transfer of Development Rights" program in Pasco County. The concept, known as TDR, would allow landowners to transfer the development rights from their rural properties to allow greater-density projects in designated urban areas — with the goal of preserving some open spaces and avoiding urban sprawl. Commissioners will hear from several experts at their workshop at the Pasco-Hernando Community College West Campus Conference Center, 10230 Ridge Road. For information on the workshop, call Carol Clark, Pasco County Growth Management, at (727) 847-8193, ext. 8419.
