New Haven reval process is starting

NEW HAVEN — The city is collecting information for the 2011 property revaluation and Assessor William O’Brien will hold neighborhood meetings to explain the process and answer any questions, according to a statement.
Meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m. June 24 at Nathan Hale School, 480 Townsend Ave.; July 13 at Celentano School, 400 Canner St.; and July 15 at Edgewood School, 737 Edgewood Ave., the statement said.
Vision Appraisal Technology of Northboro, Mass. will assist the city with revaluation, which will take about 20 months to complete, the statement said. Vision Appraisal data collectors will visit every property and inspect the interior and exterior of each building, as well as “characteristics of the land,” the statement said. All Vision representatives will carry photo identification from the city and Vision Appraisal, and a letter of introduction letter from the Assessor’s office. City personnel also carry photo identification. Descriptions of their cars and vehicle registration markers will be on file with the Police Department (203-946-6316) and the Assessor’s Office (203-946-4800).
“Despite precautions taken by the city, property owners are urged to request identification before granting anyone permission to enter their properties, and property owners should be wary of potential imposters attempting to impersonate Data Collectors. Any suspicious behavior or activity should be immediately reported to the New Haven Police Department,” the statement said.
Residents who can’t be present for daytime inspection may call Vision Appraisal at 800-628-1013 to request an appointment, the statement said.
