Abstract : The purpose of this research is to establish a model of transferable development rights that will help to control growth around naval air installations. With present development trends around military installations encroachment conflicts have increased, resulting in severe problems for both naval air stations and local communities. The establishment of a voluntary market driven Transferable Development Rights (TDR) Program would alleviate local and incompatible land use problems by redirecting growth to areas that would be better suited to handle the increasing rate of urbanization. This research examines the potential for the establishment of a TDR program on the outside perimeter of Naval Air Station Cecil field in Jacksonville Florida. The proposed TDR model will protect present non-developed areas from future development pressures, ensuring controlled growth around the naval air facility. The net effect is preservation of specific important areas with equitable compensation for owners. There is no cost to the taxpayer since no acquisition by the government is involved and simultaneously the development needs of the growing population can be met. The transfer of development rights is a technique to solve land use fundamental dilemmas without violating basic rights and due process as guaranteed under the Constitution. A TDR program basically balances the advantage and disadvantages of public policy decisions in regard to planning and land development regulations.
