Do I get compensated?
Real estate taxes are determined by the value of the real estate. May we therefore expect a reduction in taxes because of recent developments in and around Edmonds:
- Approval of Alaska Airlines flights from Paine Field. Low-flying jets will drown out outdoor conversation.
- Coal trains: I live above the tracks on Olympic View. The frequent grind of passing trains will make the lawn on the west side of the house seem like living in a low-rent apartment with a window on the tracks.
- Loss of Petosa's.
- High-rise building...
- Increasing difficulty getting through traffic to Seattle (attention commuter trains... !)
Clearly, my house has lost desirability and value. Perhaps it's time to move, though I hate to.
Will someone make sure that my property value taxes are lowered, and that I am compensated for a lower sales value by all these things?
