Notice of Public Hearing



Pursuant to M.G.L. Chapter 82, Section 32A, the Board of Selectmen for the Town of Otis will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at 7:00 pm at the Town Offices, 1 North Main Road, Otis, MA.  The public hearing is to determine whether to formally discontinue maintenance of the following roads:

Miller Swamp Road from Blandford Road to edge of town map

Miner Road

Stebbins Road from Dimmock Road to #881

Dotted Line Road from Stebbins Road to Giles

Tolland Road from #864 to edge of town map

Whittier Road


In order to discontinue maintenance of a road, the Board must determine that the road has become “abandoned and unused for ordinary travel and that the common convenience and necessity no longer requires said town way…to be maintained in a condition reasonably safe and convenient for travel”.


Please note that if the Board votes to discontinue maintenance of a road, the road still remains a public way with a public right of passage.




All interested parties are invited to attend.
