Assessment Calculation Factors

Paving Assessment Calculations

Read what factors are taken into consideration when calculating your paving assessment.

I.

If your property (both residential and/or non-residential) has legal right of access (such as by a driveway) to the area being improved and is connected to such improvements.

a. If you have a Residential Property, the following criteria apply:

(1.) Improved Residential Parcels
1 ERU for each single family detached residential unit (including mobile homes on individual lots) and 3/5 ERU for each existing multi-family residential units (including apts., condos, townhouses, duplexes and mobile homes in mobile home parks)

(2.) Partially Improved Residential Parcels
Each parcel within agricultural, residential or mobile homes zoning districts are assessed the greater of the ERUS under (a) (3) below or the actual number of existing dwelling units in place at the time of the assessment.

(3.) Unimproved Residential Parcels
65% of the maximum number of single family residential units allowed under applicable land development code requirements for that parcel.

(4.) Non-residential Parcels
Parcels that are zoned agricultural, non-residential or contain mobile homes are assessed 65% of the maximum number of single family residential dwelling units allowed under the predominant residential zoning requirements of the project area to be assessed.

II.

Parcels with Secondary or Alternative Access to Improvements and that are contiguous (or adjacent) to the improvements

Such parcels are assessed 50% of ERUS determined under Paragraph I above. An example of such a parcel would be a corner lot which has access to more than 1 street.

III.

Parcels that are Non-contiguous (not adjacent to or directly connected) to Improvements but where 50% of Parcel lies within 1000 ft. of the centerline of Improvements and the parcel has access to the County’s collector and arterial roadway network through the improvements.

Such parcels are assessed 25% of the number of ERUS determined for those parcels under paragraph I.

IV.

Non-Contiguous parcels but where parcel’s sole means of access to the County’s collector and arterial roadway network is through the Improvements.

Such parcels are assessed 25% of the number of ERUS as determined in paragraph I.

V.

Exceptions to assessment:

(1) Property has 0 ERUS

a) Parcels that are unbuildable because of environmental conditions, zoning requirements or deed restrictions, etc.

b) Parcels owner by federal, state, counties or cities.

(2) Board may approve alternative methodology where strict application would create a practical difficulty or undue hardship.
