NCLGA Executive Recommendation: No Recommendation | Endorsed by the NCLGA Membership - Defeated by the UBCM Membership

Details

Whereas local governments are unaware of when BC Assessment is making property classification changes, without regard to zoning for that particular piece of property;

And whereas local governments have the authority to determine land use zoning within their boundary, and should be consulted on changes to the assessment classification:

Therefore be it resolved that NCLGA and UBCM request the Province of BC require that BC Assessment Authority obtain consent from a local government prior to making any property classification changes.
