The Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank reported revenues of $353,850 for the business week ending on Friday, August 5, 2022. The land bank receives its funds from a two per cent fee charged on many Vineyard real estate transactions.

Much of the land bank revenue last week came from the town of Edgartown, where four transactions resulted in $212,060. One transaction earned $67,500 in Tisbury. Four transactions generated $59,090 in Oak Bluffs. And one transaction resulted in $15,200 in West Tisbury. No eligible transactions were recorded in Aquinnah or Chilmark.

The land bank uses its revenues to purchase and manage land for purposes of conservation, preservation and passive recreation. To date the agency has participated in the purchase of more than 3,900 acres of Vineyard land.
