TDRs help save city?s history

The city of Ketchum's approval of a Transfer of Development Rights program aimed at retaining significant historic buildings while promoting economic development is an excellent policy.

The Ketchum-Sun Valley Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the history of the Wood River Valley as part of promoting a more prosperous future. The society has consistently supported and at times offered proposals intended to preserve and protect our environment. Retaining historic buildings adds uniqueness to a city and helps keep it interesting and thriving.

The society commends and thanks the members of the Ketchum City Council for approving this important ordinance.
