Peotone, IL – The Peotone Township Assessor’s Office has launched a significant project to remeasure approximately 1,800 property parcels, beginning in March 2023. This substantial initiative follows the uncovering of major discrepancies in property records, raising concerns about the accuracy and fairness of property valuations.
As part of the re-measurement process, the field crew will not only measure properties but also leave noticeable door tags on each parcel. These tags serve as an important notification to homeowners, indicating that their property has been remeasured. If full access to a parcel is not possible, the tag will request property owners to schedule a complete assessment.
Another key aspect of this project involves the use of satellite measurements. In cases where property owners choose to deny access to their land, the Assessor’s Office will resort to satellite and pictometry measuring techniques. While this method provides an alternative, it might lead to less precise measurements compared to on-site assessments.
This ambitious re-measurement campaign underscores a significant move towards ensuring that property valuations in Peotone are fair, accurate, and transparent. With the township’s commitment to correcting the records, residents are keenly watching how this development unfolds and impacts property assessments in the area.
