City re-zoning hearing brings public
comments about high property taxes
by Leslie Ehrenberg
Two residents spoke out at the City of Appleton re-zoning public hearing Wednesday, May 18. Both residents talked about their disapproval of the high property taxes in Appleton and the many projects being undertaken by the city.
Council Member Lindsey Knutson addressed the purpose of re-zoning the city’s land. “The last zoning update was in 1975. We wanted to redo the zoning so that it would encourage commercial development in town; hopefully help with some of those property taxes down the road by bringing more business here.”
The proposed re-zoning mostly affects homes along the Highway 7/59 corridor through Appleton, which is all being classified as commercial. These homes however, and any other property re-classified, will be grandfathered in and stay in their current zoning classification while the home is still there. Property taxes or rates will not change on them until there is a change in the use of the property.
Re-zoning does not affect the property taxes of any property with current homestead status.
After asking if there was any further input from the public, the council closed the hearing. The council will look at the re-zoning proposal at their next monthly meeting and take action on it.
