Assessment overviews for 2015 were mailed out to Calgarians on January 5th. My office has been contacted by concerned residents that have questions regarding their assessments. In some cases residents in Ward 12 have reported property value increases of over 40%.
There are a few mechanisms available to residents that wish to contest the assessment provided by the City:
- The City of Calgary Assessment department has evaluation staff on standby to answer any specific questions regarding assessments. They have strongly encouraged Calgarians to call them directly at 403-268-2888.
- If your concerns cannot be resolved by the assessor you can visit calgaryarb.ca for more information or how to file a complaint online. Residents have until March 6, 2015 to file complaints on their 2015 assessments.
You can find more information on the assessment process by going here.
On February 3, 2015 I will be hosting the Ward 12 Open House at Cranston Century Hall, 11 Cranarch Road SE. At this Open House you will have the opportunity to speak with various departments from the City of Calgary and find out what is happening in Ward 12 in 2015. I hope to see many of you there!
