Beyond Takings and Givings

Mar 8, 2007
Author: Rick Pruetz Published: March 2003 Publisher: Arje Press As property rights and takings have become more important in land-use planning, the popularity of transferable development rights -- or TDRs -- has grown dramatically. Now, in an update of his classic book Saved By Development, Rick Pruetz, AICP -- America's leading TDR practitioner -- provides a comprehensive overview of TDRs, as well as the down-and-dirty basics that any jurisdiction considering implementing a TDR system must know. Beyond Takings and Givings offers a progress report on most of the 112 TDR programs profiled in Pruetz's 1997 book -- plus case studies of some 30 additional programs! In addition, Beyond Takings and Givings provides a step-by-step guide to creating a TDR program and addresses the most commonly asked questions on this topic, including What is a TDR system? How did the TDR concept evolve? What can TDRs accomplish? What are TDR's advantages and disadvantages? How do you make a TDR system work? How does a TDR compare to other implementation tools?
