Dear Boards, Commissions and Interested Parties I would like to present to all parties interested the following:

The Assessors Office is obligated to provide Abutters Lists.

MGL Chapter 40a-11

People appear at our counter asking for an abutters list. These people are sent to us from many different authorities including:

  • The Town Managers Office
  • Planning Board
  • Board of Appeals
  • Licensing
  • Conservation Commission
  • Building Department.
The Assessors Office has developed a form for the person requesting the abutters list to fill out and a Schedule of Fees charged for this
service. (Attached) Many times the person requesting the abutters list does not know what kind of list they need. The Assessors Office is not
in the position to advise them as to what they should request.

We would like to inform all authorities sending applicants for a certified abutters list that our form for abutters list exists and that they should
be informing the persons requesting the abutters lists as to what list option they should request and/or advise them to seek legal advise on
the matter.

Patrick Harring
Deputy Assessor
