Conservation, recreation and agriculture for the benefit of the public in perpetuity
The Nantucket Land Bank was created by a 466-to-1 vote of annual Town meeting
in 1983. Since inception, as the first of its kind in the nation, it has served as a model
for other communities across the country. For over 30 years, we have worked to
acquire, hold and manage key open spaces, provide waterfront access, preserve
scenic views, protect ecological resources, promote local agriculture and create
outdoor recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike.
To date, nearly half of Nantucket is forever protected open space. Explore Land Bank properties and walking trails on our interactive map.
Nantucket Land Bank meeting agendas are posted in the Agendas and Minutes section of the Town website.
All property transfer forms are available at the Land Bank office and are also available for download here.
