City reappraisal "staggering" to homeowners

May 28, 2007

By ANDY KIRKALDY

VERGENNES — Vergennes board of listers chairman Mel Hawley told aldermen last week that the effect of the just-completed city-wide reappraisal would be “staggering� on many homeowners, but that the results of the 18-month valuation effort were fair.

Since 1993, the last time the city’s property was reappraised, Hawley said that the value of Vergennes homes has increased at a faster rate than the value of the city’s commercial and industrial properties.

As a result, he said, homeowners have actually been paying a lower percentage of the city’s taxes than they should have been. Now, according to examples Hawley provided aldermen at their May 22 meeting, homeowners could be looking at tax hikes ranging from 4.5 percent to 37.3 percent.

“Residential properties over the past 14 years were paying less than their fair share. So what this is, is actually corrected,� Hawley said. “I know it’s staggering, but it’s correcting inequities that occurred over that 14-year period.�

Lincoln housing plans

May 28, 2007

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

LINCOLN — A local resident is planning to build six houses on about 60 acres of property between Purinton Road and Downingsville Road in Lincoln into six separate housing lots. If the plan goes through, it will represent a substantial development in the area.

The Lincoln Planning Commission will evaluate the proposal at a public hearing on Monday, June 7, at 7:15 p.m. the town office.

The property belongs to Lincoln resident Dhyani Ywahoo. She said she decided around 2005 to build houses on the land both to develop the investment, and for some friends of hers, who will be living in some of the houses. “I wish to regather some of my investment, and also wish to have friends living nearby,� she said.

Originally, she said there were ambitious plans for a “green� development that would have greatly reduced energy use and relied on renewable fuel sources such as solar or geothermal energy. “With the cost of fuel, it’s really become very significant,� she said.
