Sewer Plans

The Engineering Division maintains maps and plans of the Town's sanitary sewer system. These maps indicate whether or not a particular location is connected to town sewer. These maps also indicate whether or not there is a sewer available in the street for connection, if desired.

Plot Plans

A plot plan is a plan of a particular lot or property. Plot plans indicate the dimensions and area of a lot. The plot plans available at the Engineering Division office are not certified plot plans and cannot be used for mortgage plans. The plot plans provided are typically 8.5 by 11 inches copies of the Assessor's Plans, also known as the Town Atlas.

Accepted & Unaccepted Ways (Public Ways & Private Ways)

The Engineering Division maintains records and plans of street acceptance. If a street or road (referred to as a way) has been accepted by Town Meeting, then it is a "public way." Otherwise, it is a "private way." Engineering Division records indicate whether a particular way was accepted, when it was accepted, its length, and the location of the street acceptance recording at the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds (Book Number and Page Number ).
