Members of the public may review files at the MEPA Office from 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by appointment. We recommend making an appointment to ensure a staff member is available to assist you and ensure the file you are looking for is available.
Each project reviewed by the MEPA Office has a unique identifier called the "EEA No." An EEA No. is assigned upon acceptance of an Environmental Notification Form (ENF).To request a MEPA file for review, provide the EEA No. This can be obtained by accessing the on-line MEPA database or Environmental Monitor. If you do not have or cannot find the EEA No., you can search the Project Database by municipalty and/or contact Josie Wixon.
Files for projects that have an assigned EEA No. of 10140 or greater are located at the MEPA Office in Boston. Projects that have a lower EEA No. are archived and may take longer to retrieve.
A scanner is available at the MEPA office and can be used to make electronic copies of paper documents. Please bring a USB drive to upload electronic copies. Paper copies can be made for 10 cents per page (cash or personal checks are accepted). Some electronic copies may be available and can be saved to a USB drive. Bound documents can be borrowed for up to 4 hours (same day only) for copying (identification must be provided). Other documents cannot be removed from the MEPA Office.
