The Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank reported revenues of $95,458.50 for the business week ending on Friday, May 10, 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 $44,027.20. Three transactions earned $26,413.30 in Tisbury. Four transactions generated $24,818 in Oak Bluffs. And one transaction earned $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 3,243 acres of Vineyard land.
