NEJC Chamber and Shawnee Mission Post announce town halls with County Appraiser Paul Welcome - UPDATED LOCATION
Public information sessions on 2018 revaluations scheduled for March 7 and March 12.
The Johnson County Appraiser’s Office will begin sending out 2018 home values beginning Feb. 26. It is suggested that residents of NEJC cities face the steepest increases by up to 18 percent. Although complete data for 2018 revaluations is not yet released, the County Appraiser’s Office notes a marked decrease in the current housing supply. According to Welcome, “Most Johnson County residents will see an increase in appraised values of their homes this year. Primary reason is the real estate market is extremely strong with high demand”.
Considering the potential tax implications for many NEJC residents, the Chamber and Shawnee Mission Post have partnered with Johnson County Appraiser Paul Welcome to hold public information sessions. NEJC residents will have the opportunity to hear directly from Welcome on March 7 or March 12. The format and information presented at both town halls will be the same. The primary focus will be to inform NEJC residents how the strong housing market has resulted in the increase again this year and it will affect most areas in the county ranging from a 2 to 18 percent increase on average.
“This has the potential to impact a majority of residents within our ten cities. We feel it is our responsibility, with the help of Shawnee Mission Post and County Appraiser’s Office, to make accurate and timely information readily available,” stated Deb Settle, President and CEO, NEJC Chamber.
The public town halls are scheduled for:
• Wed., March 7, 5:30 p.m. DUE TO OVERWHELMING RESPONSES THIS FORUM HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE PAUL HENSON YMCA (4200 W. 79th Street, Prairie Village KS 66208)
