Tuesday, September 17, 2013, at 7 pm, the Stafford Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on amendments to the Transfer of Development Rights ordinance. The proposed amendments will:

  • increase the number of potential development rights for transfer to 1,236;
  • expand the size of the area to which the development rights can be transferred;
  • increase by-right residential and commercial density in the receiving area.

Potential lost proffer revenues could exceed $53 million under the proposed amendments, while failing to guarantee any public access to lands in the TDR program. The staff report on the amendments can be found here. Read the news story: Will TDR program expand in Stafford?
