A Sustainable Development Academy program presented by the Local Government Academy and Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Sustainable Community Development Network
This webinar, presented for municipal leaders, land use planners and community development corporations in Southwestern Pennsylvania, introduces participants to the use of Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) to protect environmentally and culturally important properties and open space and promote innovative and sustainable land use. Municipalities with existing infrastructure and property not generating revenue could benefit from TDR programs. Development is directed where the municipality prefers it to be, and development rights can be transferred to another parcel where they are better suited to benefit the community and are better positioned to yield revenue. During the webinar, Roy Kraynyk, Allegheny Land Trust’s Vice President of Land Protection and Capital Projects, will introduce practical applications of Transfer of Development Rights in the region.
