The Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank reported revenues of $387,480 for the business week ending on Friday, Jan. 18, 2019.

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 three transactions resulted in $340,000. Two transactions earned $20,300 in Tisbury. Two transactions generated $13,580 in Oak Bluffs. One transaction resulted in $7,200 in West Tisbury. And one transaction earned $6,400 in Chilmark. No eligible transactions were recorded in Aquinnah.

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 3,243 acres of Vineyard land.
