"LOCALSCAPE - Putting King County in Focus"
King County Assessor King County Department of Assessments
Introduced by: Bob Holert
Here is your chance to prepare for your new 2015 Property Values and better understand how they are determined!
“LocalScape – Putting King County in Focus”
King County Assessor Lloyd Hara and his staff will showcase LocalScape – a new dynamic property data portal designed to unleash the power of community data and redefine civic engagement. LocalScape leverages the power of spatial technology to integrate Assessor property data with a range of critical data streams and illustrate a rich landscape of information, including neighborhood values, sales, permit, Census, and education data.
The useful award-winning application has received positive feedback, and Assessor Hara welcomes your input as his team forges new partnerships and looks to make future enhancements.
The Assessor will also address the valuation process, how property taxes are determined, and property exemptions. The 2015 valuation postcards will be mailed to property owners in July through October and offer two new features, including pre-registration to receive future valuation notices electronically via email.
