TDR Demonstration Projects
Announced by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs on February 10, 2005:

Berkeley Township, Ocean County
Berkeley Township plans to send credits from the Pinewald section of town as well as other environmentally sensitive areas. The Township will use the credits in various redevelopment sites along and near Route 9.

Fanwood Borough, Union County
Fanwood is proposing a unique transfer that would place permanent restrictions on structures in the Borough's designated historic district, in exchange for greater density in a proposed downtown redevelopment area near the train station. The proposal promotes redevelopment and transit-oriented development, and will be the first historic preservation TDR program in the State.

Hopewell Township, Cumberland County
Hopewell plans to transfer credits from agricultural lands to a greenfield area west of Bridgeton. The Township is currently undergoing several initiatives to preserve land, and plans to use TDR to bolster its planning efforts.

MontgomeryTownship, Somerset County
Montgomery will send credits from the Sourland Mountains Region of the community to a proposed transit-oriented development at the Belle Meade station on the former West Trenton Line. Credits will be converted into commercial development in the area surrounding the train station.

Washington Township, Mercer County
Washington Township officials are proposing to transfer development rights from approximately 7,000 acres of farmland to their designated Town Center. The Town Center is zoned for a mix of uses, with 500,000 square feet of commercial development and 1,000 residential units.

Woolwich Township, Gloucester County
Woolwich will transfer credits from agricultural lands primarily to areas north of Swedesboro and possibly to areas south of the Weatherby residential development. The predominately-agricultural sending area consists of approximately 5,000 acres, and includes parts of the Tomlin Station Natural Heritage Priority site and the grand Spruce Run National Heritage site. The community aims to curb development in the area to maintain its rural character, while accommodating for economic development in more suitable growth areas.

Highlands TDR Demonstration Projects
Announced by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs on February 17, 2005:

Lodi Borough, Bergen County
Lodi is not in the Highlands Region, but is willing to accept credits from the preservation area under a provision of the law that allows municipalities in Highlands Counties to do so. The proposed receiving areas include a number of large vacant and underutilized industrial sites suitable for mixed-use redevelopment, like the BASF site.

Oxford Township, Warren County
Oxford Township is located in both the preservation and planning area of the Highlands Region. The Township is currently working on a redevelopment plan for a recently closed textile-manufacturing site, which will provide the Township with a unique opportunity to include TDR in its community planning. The former industrial site will become the receiving area and will feature a mixed-use development compatible to the Township's existing downtown. A site the Township had originally purchased to redevelop will become a sending area and converted into usable open space.

Prospect Park, Passaic County
Prospect Park is not in the Highlands Region, but is willing to accept credits from the preservation area under a provision of the law that allows municipalities in Highlands Counties to do so. The proposed receiving area is a soon-to-be-closed, 75-acre quarry. The borough plans to create a mixed-use development on the property, which represents 25 percent of the Borough's land area.
