News EOPSS announces new requirements for complying with updating parcel mapping and addresses

Every municipality received a letter from EOPSS regarding keeping 9-1-1 information up to date.
  • MassGIS (Bureau of Geographic Information)

On February 13, 2018, the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) notified all communities of new requirements for funding under the State 911 Department Support and Incentive Grants. The EOPSS requirements concern annual updates to MassGIS of standardized assessor parcel mapping and of new or changed addresses. Both requirements are directly related to MassGIS’ ability to maintain the data and mapping on which the Next Generation 9-1-1 system depends. In determining compliance with these requirements, what MassGIS primarily seeks from communities is a good faith effort to comply.

Here are more details on both these requirements.
