The City of Calgary Assessment
department understands that the damage to many homes throughout Calgary has impacted property values. In early September they began to gather and collect property information to identify impacts caused by the flood, and determine how property values will be affected for the 2014 assessment roll.
Affected property owners should have received a request for information in the mail, but can also set up an information exchange appointment with Assessment to discuss the status of their property or ask questions prior to the finalization of the 2014 assessment values. Appointments to exchange information are taking place from October to early November.
The City of Calgary plans to mail 2014 Property Assessment Notices on January 3, 2014. Following the Notice mailing, all property owners will have the opportunity to review and ask questions about their 2014 assessment during the 60-day Customer Review Period which runs from January 3 - March 4, 2014. If you have information about your property that needs to be changed or updated, please contact Assessment during the Customer Review Period.
All of this is being done to accurately reflect the damage caused by the flood in the 2014 assessment values. They are proactively looking at the market value impacts to individual properties and to communities and will update Calgarians as they move forward.
