Madison TDR program: a PlanFirst community success

The City of Madison is one of less than a handful of municipalities in Georgia to initiate a Transferrable Development Rights (TDR) Program. Unlike traditional agricultural oriented
programs, this TDR Program concentrates on the protection and connection of vital pockets of natural habitat, riparian areas, and greenspace within an existing built environment. From policy development to program implementation, this collaborative planning initiative is reaping conservation and cash now and is poised to leverage future greenspace and growth benefits for this small town. This program was heavily referenced and developed in the Madison Comprehensive Plan. The Madison TDR Program was sought for Resource Management objectives, but its first use was superlative in obtaining both Resource Management objectives and Housing Options objectives. A website dedicated to the TDR program is available at www.MadisonGA.com/TDRprogram.
