What is a TDR? A Transferrable Development Right is a mathematical calculation determining how many building lots can be rendered from a property if it were subdivided. Those Development Rights can be sold which then removes the right to build an additional residential structure on that property. If any property owner would like to build on the property, he/she must hold back at least one TDR in order to build the house, unless you are friends with Ken Miller and his cronies.
Selling Development Rights, then Developing!
I read this in the comments section of the Daily News and was intrigued. No wonder Pam Brown was smiling in that photo I showed you recently. I think I would be smiling if somebody just gave me $102,800 as a recompense not to subdivide my land, then later gave me permission to build a 2,000 sq ft house with a garage, swimming pool, and even a business running from that garage....Read more

West Vincent officials deny special treatment was given to landowner
WEST VINCENT — A revision to township land use regulations for accessary dwellings is being derided by its critics as the “Pam Brown Ordinance.”
Township supervisors, however, call the criticism a non-issue and note the ordinance was adopted long after the land-use approvals were granted to the homeowner. And because no one objected four years ago, the matter.....Read more
Missing $50,000 deposit for a TDR purchase
The Open Space issue has brought more interesting issues to light. Remember, this is your money. You, the voters of West Vincent, were in favor of paying taxes to save open space and voted to do so in a Referendum placed on the ballot. The problem is, you trusted the wrong people and there has been no citizen oversight. Here is an interesting TDR issue: Read more....
Oversize House Built on Preserved Ground
Following the monologues of Jim Wendelgass claiming I was mistaken (which I have proved to be misrepresentation of what I said), then the rally of Clare Quinn to do the same (again, a gross misrepresentation), then it was Pam Brown's turn at my investigative research.
