Local IT Innovation of the Year
The Mecklenburg County, North Carolina Property Valuation Tool was an immediate benefit to the Assessor’s Office, as it finalized property revaluations for Jan. 1, 2023. The county faced staffing shortages and a volatile real estate market that saw historic growth over a short period. The tool helped the Assessor’s Office identify errors, determine if estimated values were reasonable and reduce the amount of work compared to its typically manually process. The tool expedited the consolidation of approximately 3,000 neighborhoods into just a few hundred to allow for a quick and decisive adjustment and quality control process.
