This is the last workshop prior to presenting the final TDR Report and recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners. In the series of workshops held to date, Growth Management and Environmental Protection staff has worked with the participants to prepare a draft report providing an analysis of TDR programs in general, an overview of some existing programs, and a review of the potential issues for Alachua County in establishing a successful program.  On Thursday staff will present a draft recommendation for discussion prior to its inclusion in the final TDR Report that will be presented to the County Commission in February.
