[ARCHIVED] Council to Consider City Assessment Policy

Early this year the Roseville City Council asked the Public Works, Environment and Transportation Commission (PWETC) to review current city policy and make recommendations to update Roseville’s assessment policy.

PWETC studied the issue through most of the year and made several recommendations that the City Council will consider on November 19. The recommendations include:

• Special benefit test – complete appraisals as a part of the project planning process to determine the impact improvements will have on the value of the business or home, ensuring that the proposed assessment is equal to or less than the increased market value. This is a change from current policy.
• Zoning – consider residential, commercial and institutional land use. Higher intensity land uses have a higher property value and consequently receive a greater property value increase from public improvements. PWETC recommends having a higher assessment rate for land uses that are not zoned for low-density residential properties. This is a change from current policy.• Street construction project type – assess for street construction and required storm water improvements. This is current policy.
• Utilities – continue to fund major maintenance using existing utility infrastructure funds, but if additional utility capacity is added because of redevelopment or rezoning, all costs would be assessed to property owners who benefit from the changes. This is current policy.• Pathway construction – if property owners request pathways along their streets, they may be assessed a portion of the project cost, depending on the results of the special benefits test. This is a change from current policy.

Please email City Engineer Deb Bloom or call her at 651-792-7042 if you have questions about the proposed assessment policy.
