Mailing property specific assessment notices in compliance with City Charter requirements kept the public informed throughout the project.
Nicollet Mall Project Assessment Roll
City of Minneapolis, Minnesota
The City of Minneapolis needed to manage the Nicollet Mall Assessment Roll which included over 7,100 downtown parcels. Bolton & Menk compiled assessment calculations into a single database tied to a digital map of the downtown project area. Data was processed in a variety of illustrative maps for City staff and Council to review. These elements were completed through Bolton & Menk's GIS technical services, python development for ArcGIS Platform, mapping and report figure creation, and spatial data analysis. The public was kept informed on the project through mailing property-specific assessment notices that were in compliance with City Charter requirements. Public assessment informational meetings were also facilitated to maintain inventory and a database of attendees, formalize property owner responses, and complete any assessment appeals.
