A little background
In September 2021, the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners established an Ad Hoc Reappraisal Committee after hearing resident concerns following the 2021 Reappraisal. The committee is made up of eight county residents including representatives of the Board of Equalization & Review and at-large community members.
The goals of this committee align with the County’s Racial Equity Action Plan, and will center on three focus areas:
-Identify homeowner concerns about the reappraisal process
-Provide guidance for future assessments
-Input into equity concerns
