You cannot extract data from Google Maps.

What you could do, is to get the data from other sources. Depending on your Area of interest, the boundary might be available from your local government agency, or even OpenStreetmap.

And even if you could, you don't have a licence to use it. –  alexgleith Mar 11 at 3:28
