Clark County Kentucky has a transferrable development rights program that is designed to direct residential growth from rural areas into the city limits. Does anyone out there know of other programs that:
1)employ the concept of portable development rights
2)use the program as a principle growth management tool
3)are being implemented in a small population juridiction
This is mostly being used now in big pop juridictions as a purchase program and cost big money. The problem for small rural areas is the difficulty of administering such a program. With a few good test cases, I think this will be one of the main tools, along with zoning, for future growth management in rural areas.
