Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) Policy – 2012 King County Comprehensive Plan Update
CARE has submitted extensive testimony and comments during the 2012 King County Comprehensive Plan Update cycle in regard to the King County Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) Program. Our materials and analysis have been posted as they become available in blog entries. We are using this page as a central directory to the individual updates.
Please contact us if you have corrections, questions or comments. This is a very important issue in our community, and we very much want to hear from every side of this issue.
The most current version of all files:
Maps: Start here! Tom C. with the Four Creeks Unincorporated Area Council has really done a tremendous job! We are most fortune to be able to partner with their Atlas Project. There is no way we could do this alone! We finally have _real_ _maps_. For so many of the things we have ‘had an intuition about’, we now have measurements, statistics, and REAL MAPS… 100% based on King County’s own actual data.
CARE Recommendations Report – TDR Policy Compliance Analysis – This walks through policies from the high level all the way down through the TDR receiving side implementation defined in the Multi-county Planning Policies, Countywide Planning Policy, King County Strategic Plan, and King County Comprehensive Plan . We show the results that have really happened in the light of each of these polices. It’s the most concise way I can come up with to express a lot of … stuff. If anybody has recommendations for condensing this into infographics – tell me!!
20111219_CARE KCCP PublicReviewDraftComments - This includes our introductory letter, numbers and measurements based on the mapping analysis work, and the proposed updates side-by-side with our analysis and recommendations of improvements. This has the most technical policy stuff.
Again, we are most grateful to Four Creeks UAC’s Atlas Project for all the mapping work.
