Only a licensed land surveyor can legally determine the location of a property boundary. If you are planning to install a new fence, or concern about a tree, or see that a neighbor is making improvements on what seems to be your property, hiring a land surveyor is the only option. They can make a legal determination of the boundary and mark it on the ground for future reference.

The Town Engineering Division does not locate property lines. However, if a resident is proposing work in an area that abuts Town property then upon request the Engineering Division will stake the Town property line in order to prevent improvements from being constructed on Town property.
The Town GIS system displays approximate property lines for use in general town-wide planning and assessment of property values. This information does not represent a field survey and is not intended as a boundary determination. The actual location of a property boundary can vary significantly from how this boundary is depicted in the GIS and therefore this information should not be used for the purpose of new construction, building permits, or any other purpose where the actual location of the property line is important.
