As a reminder, consultants working with the City of Pittsfield Assessors’ Office are currently performing inspections at properties across the city that have not been inspected in the last 10 years. This is a long-term project that will continue throughout 2019.
These inspections will take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday; however, please note that there may be occasional weekend inspections as well. The consultants performing this work will carry a specialized City of Pittsfield photo ID. Residents can verity this information by contacting the Assessors’ Office at 413-395-0102 and the Pittsfield Police Department.
Current inspection areas, as of Friday, May 31, include:
- Leona Drive, Harryel Street, Elaine Drive, and Pine Grove Drive
- Parkside Avenue and Milan Street
- Briggs Avenue, Richmond Avenue, Canal Street and Washington Avenue
- Cherry Street, Oak Street, Maple Street, and Willow Lane
Inspection areas will be available on the City Hall Facebook page and the Assessors’ web page on the city’s website, www.cityofpittsfield.org.
The Bureau of Local Assessment, part of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue, requires that a periodic data inspection program provide for the inspection of each parcel at least once every 10 years. An inspection of the property should include a full measure and listing of the exterior, as well as a concerted effort demonstrated for interior inspections. The program also requires that front exterior pictures of the property accompany the listing information.
