Community Preservation Act Conservation Restrictions

harju_300A recent change to the Community Preservation Act (CPA) requires that when municipalities purchase land for conservation with CPA funds the land must be protected by a perpetual Conservation Restriction (CR). The town of Barnstable has asked Barnstable Land Trust to hold those CRs. In 2017 we are working with the town on 4 properties totaling 19.76 acres in the villages of Barnstable, Centerville, Hyannis and Marstons Mills.
