A Certified Abutters List is needed whenever public hearings require individual notice to interested parties. Each Town Board or Commission has requirements that differ dependent upon the specific petition. Typically, owners within 300 feet of the petitioner’s property lines must be notified. The list is certified by the Assessors’ Office. The Assessors’ Office has up to 10 days to complete the list.
The fee to create a Certified Abutters List is $25.00 per parcel. To request a Certified Abutters List, you may complete the attached form (click here) and fax (978-456-4113) or mail it to the Assessors’ Office at 13 Ayer Road, Harvard MA 01451.
