The Transferable Development Rights (TDR) Program seeks to redistribute development away from sensitive parcels into areas more suitable for growth. Its various types of TDR transactions help realize greenhouse gas reductions (GHG), further environmental threshold attainment, and improve the livability of area communities by increasing affordable housing and other desirable development. It also strives to allow owners of sensitive property to realize value through sales of their development rights.
This Parcel Tracker, part of Lake Tahoe Info, is a critical implementation tool for the TDR Program. All development right transfers are tracked here so that the information necessary to assess effectiveness and develop policy improvements is available. Further, the system aims to streamline TDR transfers and allocations for project proponents (permit applications) and lead agencies.
