<br />BOARD OF EQUALIZATION MINUTES - DECEMBER 7, 1994 <br /> <br />Page 2 <br /> <br />Board feels that $6,000 is a fair value using current standards. There were not many comparable <br />sales, but the Board feels the Assessor's valuation is reasonable. Member Bill Marlow moved to <br />sustain the Assessor's valuation of $49,445 for parcel number 702 134 019. Vice-Chairman Dick <br />Broders seconded the motion which carried by a unanimous vote. (See also minutes of September <br />28, 1994) <br /> <br />John & Patricia Stone <br />P.O. Box 596 <br />Quilcene, WA 98376 <br /> <br />BOE: 94-44-R <br /> <br />PN: 702 251 016 <br /> <br />The Board reviewed the information provided by the petitioner and the Assessor and conducted an <br />inspection of the property. Member Bill Marlow stated that the petitioners feel their property has <br />been devalued as a result of Coast Oyster Company impairing their view by building a structure <br />on a dock, south of the petitioner's property. They also believe that their view is not as good as <br />neighboring homes. The Board did not find that to be the case at the time of the property <br />inspection and does not feel the issues brought up by the petitioners constitute a reduction in <br />value. Comparable sales presented by the Assessor's office indicate the property is valued fairly. <br />Member Bill Marlow moved to sustain the Assessor's valuation of $252,030 for parcel number <br />702 251 016. Vice-Chairman Dick Broders seconded the motion which carried by a unanimous <br />vote. (See also minutes of September 29, 1994) <br /> <br />Mary A. Griffin <br />7801 Greenwood N. <br />Seattle, WA 98103 <br /> <br />BOE: 94-46-LO <br /> <br />PN: 601 072 002 <br /> <br />The Board reviewed the information provided by the petitioner and the Assessor and conducted an <br />inspection of the property. Member Bill Marlow moved to send a letter to Cedric Lindsay, <br />thanking him for providing transportation by boat, to inspect Ms. Griffin's property which is only <br />accessible by water. Vice-Chairman Dick Broders seconded the motion which carried by a <br />unanimous vote. <br /> <br />Vice-Chairman Dick Broders stated that the Board only inspected the property from the boat as <br />they were unable to get ashore. There was a very good view from the water. Member Bill <br />Marlow stated that the sales presented by the Assessor were difficult to compare with the <br />petitioner's property. Vice-Chairman Dick Broders explained the property was valued at $550 per <br />front foot and then reduced by 40% for topography and access. The Board agrees that access is <br />an issue, but without additional evidence proving the property is less valuable, the Board is unable <br />to justify a further reduction. Member Bill Marlow moved to sustain the Assessor's valuation of <br />$33,000 for parcel number 601 072 002. Vice-Chairman Dick Broders seconded the motion <br />which carried by a unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman Dick Broders presented figures he and Member Bill <br />Marlow computed that better reflect the actual improvement value of the property. After further <br />discussion Vice-Chairman Dick Broders moved to overrule the Assessor's valuation of the <br />improvements and reduce it to $511,272, for a total property value of $543,672. Member Bill <br />Marlow seconded the motion which carried by a unanimous vote. (See also minutes of October <br />26, 1994) <br />
