For the first time, a new online tax parcel map viewer has been made available by Oneida County that will provide easier access and research capabilities and promote economic development, according to an announcement by Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. on Wednesday.
“Developers, surveyors, foresters, engineers, realtors, abstractors, attorneys and all professionals dealing with real estate in every county across the nation, use tax parcels maps,” Picente said.
“Until now, for those in Oneida County, that would involve traveling to the County Office Building in Utica to physically look over parcel maps in an office,” his announcement continues, regarding the unveiling of the online tool that streamlines the process of obtaining property data for a variety of purposes including buying and selling property.
The online mapping tool offers a variety of real-time features that can display parcels over a variety of imagery to provide an understanding of what is on and around it — such as locations of nearby floodplains, wetlands and contours.
“When developing this type of comprehensive mapping application you want to put real data in the hands of those who need to use it day in and day out,” said Oneida County Commissioner of Planning James Genovese, in a statement.
“This will allow someone to ascertain quickly the owner, address, assessed value and acreage, as well as cross-referencing that information against school districts, floodplains, sanitary sewers, wetlands, soils and other data points that allow for more informed decisions to be made quicker, leading to more sales and development,” Genovese added.
