Public Records Requests

The Massachusetts Public Records Law provides that every person has a right of access to public information. This right of access includes the right to inspect, copy, or have copies of records provided.

The Guide to the Massachusetts Public Records Law is published and made available by the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth. It contains extensive information about Public Records, including Frequently Asked Questions, exemptions from Public Records Law, applicable fees, and statutory references.

Commonly requested records, such as meeting minutes, election results, and planning board decisions, are usually available on this web site. The Search function  (see the "Search" box above) will help identify all the documents relevant to your reqest. Town maps, aerial photography, parcel and assessor information is available on our Geographic Information System (GIS) web site.

Boxborough has 5 Records Access Officers (RAOs).
