Transfer of Development Rights
Redmond's Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) program allows property owners in environmentally or historically significant areas to transfer their right to develop to property owners in areas of Redmond more suitable for urban development. A successful transaction benefits the seller, who sells the development rights for financial considerations, the buyer, who is able to use the TDR on his/her property, and the public at large, which gains a permanent open space, recreation area, or historically significant site.
The Department of Commerce's (formerly Community, Trade, and Economic Development) fall 2008 About Growth publication highlights TDR programs in Redmond and other parts of Puget Sound.
This site offers answers to frequently asked questions, maps, and other resources for potential program participants. For more information contact Jeff Churchill, Senior Planner, 425-556-2492 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
