Welcome to the Town of Bourne Engineering Department. Our goal is to provide the residents, contractors, and fellow departments with the technical assistance they require and expect. Check back periodically as we will be updating to add more helpful information related to Roads, Stormwater, Flood Insurance, GIS information, and other Engineering and Mapping related listings.

Plot Plans

Plot plans are typically found in the Inspections/Building Department. Septic Plans in the Board of Health are also helpful in property orientation but are not required to be completely accurate for boundary determination. The Engineering Department holds the subdivision plans typically found in the Barnstable Registry of Deeds and any other Town associated plans that have voluntarily been submitted. The Department doesn't have many plot plans unless building information was recorded as part of a subdivision of land. For basic understanding of the orientation of your home on your lot please use the following link provided by MassGIS (Bureau of Geographic Information):
