Transfer of Development Rights Project
Advisory Committee

The Skagit TDR project is working with a TDR Advisory Committee consisting of 16 members. The committee represents groups and organizations that might directly participate in a Skagit County TDR program, including agriculture, forestry, conservation, builders, developers, real estate professionals, bankers, and city planners. The committee also has two at-large members to help represent the interests of Skagit County residents generally. The role of the TDR Advisory Committee is to review and provide input on key policy and technical issues, and TDR public outreach efforts, to the County planning staff and consultants, the Planning Commission, and the Skagit County Board of Commissioners. The TDR Advisory Committee is not a decision-making body and is not expected to "vote" on recommendations or achieve consensus on all issues brought before them.
