First unveiled by Mr. Slutzky at an

October 3rd press conference

, there is no written proposal on the table about how a TDR program would specifically work in Albemarle County.  At the Board of Supervisors meeting on October 4th, the Board agreed to hear a presentation on TDRs which has now been scheduled for their November 1st meeting.
