Community Boundaries (Towns) - Multi-part

Description
The political boundary datalayer is a 1:25,000 scale datalayer containing the boundaries of the 351 communities (cities and towns) in Massachusetts. The seaward boundary of coastal communities has been defined at mean high water in this datalayer.The datalayer is named TOWNS, and it is stored as a single statewide coverage. Note that the 351 communities are the official municipal names, not including "villages" or other sections of towns. This layer contains "multi-part" polygons -- only one record for each of the 351 municipalities in the state -- meaning towns with islands will are treated as one feature. This layer was created by dissolving the single-part TOWNS_POLY layer.
