Delaware County’s Reassessment Process Continues

Delaware County hold informational meetings in Sharon Hill and Glen Mills

 

Delaware County has set up a website dedicated to educating residents and answering questions regarding Delaware County’s Tax Reassessment Project. The website includes a video presentation on the Tax Reassessment process.  The website can be found here:http://delcorealestate.co.delaware.pa.us/delcoreassessment          

In March 2017 Delaware County was ordered by the Court to conduct a countywide property tax reassessment, effective for the 2021 tax year. Delaware County Council contracted with Tyler Technologies Inc. in 2017 to provide real property appraisal services for the County’s 2020 general reassessment. The project, which is being implemented through the County Treasurer’s Office will utilize Tyler’s appraisal and street imaging services. Council also contracted with Eagleview to provide pictometry imagery of properties.

During the initial phase of this project, which began in December 2017, Tyler will provide the County with detailed, high-resolution street level images. Tyler will be photographing properties from inside white vans which will be clearly marked. The images will only be taken from the street and Tyler staff will not enter private property. To alleviate any privacy concerns images will not be taken of homeowners and/or children.

The reassessment project includes data gathering, verification of data, establishment of assessed values and an opportunity to appeal.  The digital images will improve the quality of visual data used by the County and Tyler appraisers.  The project will also allow verification and correction of address discrepancies.  Additionally, the images will be helpful for emergency management recovery reports, necessary for state and federal assistance.

Tyler has concluded the gathering of street level images in Upper Darby, Haverford, East Lansdowne, Yeadon, Radnor, Marple, Lansdowne, Aldan, Collingdale, Sharon Hill, Folcroft, Glenolden, Newtown, Tinicum, Colwyn and Norwood.  Images are currently being collected in Clifton Heights, Springfield, Morton, Rutledge, Prospect Park, Ridley Park, Ridley Township, Eddystone and Upper Providence.

Tyler staff will be in Delaware County throughout the reassessment process, concluding in 2020. During the duration of the project Tyler will be in communication with the County, providing county officials and local law enforcement updates on current collection locations and expected duration.

Eagleview will be providing Delaware County with aerial imagery, known as pictometry.  The process, beginning in the spring will include plane based aerial collection of both orthogonal (straight down), and oblique imagery (birds-eye view) of the entire county. The aerial imagery will benefit the reassessment project, enabling a more cost effective, and less invasive means of confirming building improvements on properties in the County. Aerial views will aid in determining which properties require further physical inspection or updates to records, and will be used throughout the project. In addition to the benefits to the reassessment project, the imagery will also benefit several other County departments ranging from planning to public safety.

The County held four public informational meetings in March and April across the County to educate residents and answer questions regarding the project. Two additional meetings have been added in Sharon Hill and Glen Mills.
