    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) _ A new study released today has found that protecting open space from development has not driven up tax rates in New Hampshire.

    The Trust for Public Land issued a report looking at the relationship between property taxes and land conservation in New Hampshire towns.

    The study found that towns that protect open space from development are not paying higher property taxes compared to their more developed neighbors.

    The report also features a way to calculate the tax impact of different approaches to conservation.

    The goal was to help towns figure out what will happen to their tax bills if they want to protect an area from development.

    The report concludes that towns can use land conservation to limit development to areas where it's easier -- and cheaper -- to provide municipal services.
