We are excited to announce that 10 development rights from designated agricultural land are available for purchase! Pierce County’s Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) Program works to:
• Preserve farmland that supplies Pierce County and its residents with fresh locally grown food
• Support County farmers by offering farming a fair compensation to keep their farmland intact
• Concentrate growth in our urban areas, where jobs and housing density primarily occur
By purchasing the development rights, the purchaser can seek higher density. Learn more about the Transfer of Development Rights program and view the market exchange here.
