The NEJC Chamber and Shawnee Mission Post have partnered with Johnson County Appraiser Paul Welcome to hold two public information sessions regarding the increase in appraised values of homes this year. Considering the potential tax implications for many NEJC residents, this will be an opportunity for them to hear directly from Welcome on March 7 and March 12. The primary focus will be to inform NEJC residents how the strong housing market has resulted in the increase again this year and it will affect most areas in the county ranging from a 2 to 18 percent increase on average.
The event for March 7 is at capacity. However, reservations are still being accepted for the March 12 event which will be held at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood Dr., Roeland Park from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. The format and information presented at both town halls will be the same.
Tonight's presentation by the appraiser's office is available online.
