How much will the assessment be for the average size lot?

This question is not easily answered as the Board sets the method of assessment and the Engineering Division recommends that lot method in cases where the majority of ownerships are of equal, or approximately equal size. The acreage or zone and termini methods are recommended when the ownership are all of variable sizes.

The Engineering Division has the policy of making the preliminary cost estimates along with a proposed cost distribution method early, so they can be circulated with the petition.
