Abstract

The Puerto Rico Planning Board wants to create a Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) program that would send land development away from ecologically sensitive areas such as karst zones. In this project we determined the amount of land that one TDR credit would represent, using criteria from successful TDR programs elsewhere and from existing zoning laws in Puerto Rico that identify the amount of land needed to construct one house unit.
