Mapping tool available for properties in Richmond


RICHMOND — Residents now have access to more detailed information on their properties, and it’s all available online.

The town has a new mapping tool called MapGeo that enables anyone with Internet access to get property and zoning data, and create maps and lists of adjacent properties. “It’s a unique mapping tool,” said Town Administrator Robert Rock. “It gives you the layout of the town. It really is a pretty neat tool.”

MapGeo was created by a Boston company, Applied Geographics Inc.

In addition to making it possible for residents to obtain property data without having to make a trip to the Town Hall, they will also be able to view environmental data at specific addresses. The environmental information includes land use, conservation areas, hazard mitigation, natural resource protection, water conservation protection and wetlands. The tool cost the town $4,500.

“Providing this tool is step the Town of Richmond is taking to provide citizens with a more digital and efficient form of government,” Town Council President B. Joe Reddish said.

People can access the mapping tool by logging onto the town’s website: richmondri.com and clicking on “maps and related data.” Or people can go to: mapgeo.com/richmondri.

Rock said he hoped residents would give it a try.

“I would like residents to take a look. It’s a very user-friendly application,” he said. “It’s just another step the Town of Richmond is taking to be more efficient, more digital.”
