How much will commercial properties pay?
All developed parcels, with over 100 square feet of impervious surfaces, will be assessed. Nonresidential properties; such as, commercial, industrial, and governmental, will be assessed based on the impervious area associated with their property.

The calculation will consider the total amount of impervious surfaces; such as, building footprint, parking lot, sidewalks, and other paved surfaces, divided by the billing unit value of 2,998, which was proposed in the 2012 fiscal year, and then will be multiplied by the adopted rate.

In some cases, a reduction to the bill amount will be granted if the property has a privately maintained drainage facility in place.

Some nonresidential properties that were constructed after 1986 will automatically receive a mitigation credit. More information on mitigation credits and other adjustments has been mailed with the first class notice you have received.
