Progress Report on New Properties

Posted Friday, July 22, 2022

The land bank continues management planning for its newest properties, the James Pond Preserve in West Tisbury and the Squibnocket Pond Reservation in Aquinnah (this latter property is co-owned with the Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation). Both properties continue to be closed to any public use at this time.

Permits — including a number of commonwealth permits — must be obtained before the properties can be opened. The land bank will work diligently to obtain these permits but it is possible that commonwealth review will take longer than planned. In the meantime, visitors are encouraged to visit the land bank’s many other preserves and reservations.
