[ARCHIVED] First TDR Transaction in Tacoma-"History in the Making" Celebration

The Transfer of Development Rights Program results in the permanent protection of resource lands while incentivizing growth with the existing urban footprint. Farmers get the development value they deserve without having to pave over their land, cities get the growth they have been planning for in appropriate areas.

This transaction represents the preservation of 20 of the 120 acre prime farmland preserved in perpetuity in Pierce County (Reise Farm) and the increase of 21 units to be added to the Carino's Stadium Apartment project.
