  1. Sadly roads after Nursery are not included here. Do you have the additional data? Could you provide it for the roads from P-Z? Thank you.

  2. I had the same problem — I can’t read the file on my computer — went to ups store to see if I could see it on theirs — no luck error msg — but can read on my Ipad — but only up to Oak st — told by the assessor office yesterday that it a window problem — you need latest update of windows

    maybe they should break it into 2 files

  3. To the reader who submitted a comment on this article under the name ‘Robert Sullivan’: We require that readers use full and verifiable names in the comments threads. It’s not enough to use a name that’s real-looking—you must verify your identity. I tried emailing the Yahoo address you attached to your comment, and it bounced back as undeliverable.

  4. The average property tax bill increase will likely be ~10% for those in the under $1 million assessment group (this group is over half the town), and that assumes close to a flat town budget.

    How does one get to that number? ~4,200 out of ~7,400 properties in the under $1 million assessment group saw an average increase of 1% in their assessments. The likely 8% mill rate increase (to offset the grand list decline of 7.15% and get back to par) plus a little extra spending on the operating budget this year (call it 1%+) if our town representatives decide not to hold the spending budget flat at most.

    And what will it do to our property values when we have a mill rate ~19 when Westport and Darien are ~16 and Greenwich is ~12?
