Not all home improvements, such as painting, result in an increased housing assessment
There are repairs.
There are improvements.
Then there are additions.
In the eyes of the city assessors, the first two are none of their business - they're concerned only with additions when it comes time to reassess a home.
With the czb LLC neighborhood study in hand, Steve Centi brought attention to some of local residents' entrenched myths.
"Painting and siding your house and doing the things called for in this plan to improve the appearance of the city, which is one of the main tenets of this thing, doesn't change the assessment of the property," Centi, the city director of development, said at the recent meeting of the city Planning Commission.

No only did local residents enjoy the sunny weather Chautauqua County experienced this summer, but tourists did too.

The research was a joint project conducted by Faulk and Steve Centi, director of development for the city, who explained that any effort to restore the neighborhoods must consider the housing stock of the area.
Said Centi: "We are looking at a regional market. You can't just take the…
PART OF THE PLAN: Strategic Partnerships And Planning Commission Chairman Puts Landlord Registration In Writing

In the effort to launch its neighborhood revitalization plan, the Strategic Partnerships and Planning Commission has decided it's a matter of timing.
At its meeting Wednesday, Len Faulk, task force chairman, repeated his support for a landlord registration process which follows a solution devised for Geneva, N.Y., and put the rules in writing for the rest of the commission to review.
Such a registration program mandates an operating permit in order for landlords to host new tenants, but fees are not scheduled at the outset. Instead, charges are only levied after a second "fire safety and property maintenance" reinspection that identifies lingering housing code violations. The cost of reinspection is $100 for each apartment unit.
