The development concept of the Chattahoochee Hill Country Alliance (CHCA) will offer a unique opportunity to carry out the sustainable development and conservation of over 40,000 acres of farmland and mature forests as well as miles of the Chattahoochee River and its tributaries. The goals of sustainable development will be accomplished through a land planning approach known as Conservation Development. Another unique element of the CHCA development concept will be the utilization of Transfer Development Rights (TDR) as a land use management tool. The CHCA has also formulated an integrated water resources management strategy to address water supply, water conservation, wastewater treatment, and stormwater management in a comprehensive, watershed-based plan.
