Akron, Ohio, May 4, 2020 – Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE has announced that the Appraisal Department will begin performing new construction evaluations on May 11, 2020. During these evaluations, appraisers will physically visit and assign values to all newly constructed and altered property in Summit County.

The project will begin in the northern part of the county and move south, concluding in the City of Green on July 31, 2020. Appraisers have divided the county into three areas and will abide by the following timeline:

Fiscal Officer Scalise has stated that it is important for residents to be aware that appraisers are in their community. Appraisers can be easily identified by their identification badge, yellow safety vest printed with the county name, and a car marked with the official placard of the Fiscal Office. They will not enter homes or other structures. Site visits will be conducted on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, county appraisers will practice safe social distancing and be equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE). When visiting a property, the appraisers will knock on the front door to inform the property owner that they are performing an evaluation. Property owners do not need to answer the door, unless they would like to speak with the appraiser. During all in-person conversations, appraisers have been instructed to stand at least 6 feet from the other person. If no one is home during their evaluation, the appraisers will leave a door hanger to notify owners of their visit.
