The City of Dover recently enabled a workforce housing project called the Cottages at Back River Road through its Transfer of Development Rights program. The development consists of 44-detached “cottage style” units that are 385 square feet each located on a 7.16 acre site. These residences, which will all be rental units, will be capped at HUD’s Fair Market Rates and are meant to support the local workforce by giving employees affordable homes near their work.
