Identifying Benefitting Parcels

Parcels included in the Assessment Reimbursement Area will be allocated a share of the total cost of the utility improvement.

A parcel will be identified as in the Assessment Reimbursement Area if it is in front of the new utility. Also, a ‘land-locked’ parcel will be included if it would likely be required to connect to the utility. Parcels that front an existing utility in addition to the new utility will also be included in the Assessment Reimbursement Area.

Example: Storm Main Extension
