Buffer part of a polygon?

Hi,
I'd like to develop a tool that will buffer only the northern half of a polygon.

I imagine calculating the poly centroid, buffer the polygon, cut the polygon in half using an east-west line drawn through the centroid, and dropping the southern half.

The advanced tool would taper between the north and south half so there is not an abrupt, unnatural straight line within the buffer.

Anyone suggest where to start?

Thanks

Rich
