The total assessed value of all real and business property in Yolo County increased by 7.23 percent over last year, the county announced Friday. With Winters seeing the largest growth percentage.
The annual assessment roll hit $33.81 billion as of Jan. 1, according to Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters Jesse Salinas.
“Local entities and services depend on property tax revenue to operate, including public schools, community colleges, cities and the county,” Salinas noted. “We as a community rely on these invaluable resources and the timely and accurate completion of the assessment roll.”
This is the county’s 10th consecutive year of growth and is due largely to the surge in demand for single-family housing as well as a strong market growth in the commercial/industrial properties throughout the county, Salinas said.
The largest increase came in the city of Winters, which experienced a 12.05 percent growth. West Sacramento and Woodland experienced the second and third largest increases within the county at 9.18 percent and 8.34 percent, respectively.
The city of Davis increased by 5.59 percent and unincorporated areas of Yolo County grew by 5.07 percent.
