Milton Officials Told Oconee County Leaders And Citizens Why Milton Adopted A Transfer Of Development Rights Program

Commissioner Luke Still Skeptical

Two officials from the north Fulton County city of Milton last night told 30 Oconee County citizens, including four commissioners, why Milton adopted just last June a Transfer of Development Rights program.

The reason, Mayor Pro Tem Bill Lusk told the group, was simple.

The residents wanted to maintain the rural character, the “green space, the open space, your farms,” he said, and the TDR program was a mechanism for doing just that.
