What is a development right?

Each parcel in the county has the potential for some level of development, which is typically measured in residential dwelling units or commercial floor area, based on a zoning classification. The amount of development allowed on a parcel of land is commonly called a “development right”, and can be bought, sold, or transferred from a parcel.
