Tax Revaluation Last August the Ballantyne Breakfast Club sponsored a presentation by Mecklenburg County Tax Assessor Kenneth L. Joyner on the 2019 property tax revaluation. Joyner now reports that 2019 Notice of Values statements will go out in mid-January. As of early October, the increase in property values stands at 51.8 percent — with a 39.5 percent median increase in residential properties and a 73.3 percent median increase in commercial properties. Property tax rates for 2019 will be set later this spring by the city, county and towns. But Joyner says as soon as notices arrive property owners can begin the informal appeal process online, through walk-ins or phone calls, and potentially resolve concerns in the first 30 days to avoid the formal appeal process that begins in May. Homeowners also now have access to sales of properties similar to their property, called "comparables," that were used to appraise their tax value. Here's how to find them. Go to www.meckreval.com and enter your street address. When your home comes up, click on the picture of it. That leads to a page with more detailed info on your home. On the upper right of that page, you should see a plat mat showing your home and parcel number. Directly beneath that map are four tabs: View Sales, Map, Pictometry and Comper. Click on "Comper" to see the comparables on which your tax value is based. Joyner and his staff are also available for speaking engagements to neighborhood groups and organizations. Make a request at www.meckreval.com. Transportation Summit SCP is holding a South Charlotte Transportation Summit from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, March 25, at The Ballantyne, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Charlotte. "Transportation and road infrastructure are critical issues affecting our area due to increased growth and development," says SCP board member Victoria Nwasike. "This summit will bring together all of the stakeholders to discuss how best to address traffic and congestion." SCP will invite local and state transportation officials as well as business and community leaders. Citizens are encouraged to attend the summit. More information will be posted in early 2019 on the SCP website, www.southcharlottepartners.org. Anyone with questions can contact the group at info@southcharlottepartners.org. Road Priorities Thanks to strong support from residents of south Charlotte, the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization gave the four local road priorities identified by SCP Shares full points in its evaluation system for funding. The road priorities also received the second-highest number of comments during the public comment period, which ended Oct. 4. Shared in the fall issue of this magazine, the road priorities are improvements to the following intersections: Ardrey Kell Road and Rea Road, Ballantyne Commons Parkway and Providence Road, Ballantyne Commons Parkway and North Community House Road and Providence Road and Old Lancaster Highway.
