AEC actively participated in the City of Calgary's Advance Consultation Period (ACP). It has provided us with an excellent opportunity to engage in the assessment process and to review the details of our clients' properties and businesses prior to the 2013 Assessment Rolls being finalized. As a courtesy to AEC, the City's Assessment Business Unit provided us with an updated list with some of the preliminary 2013 assessment values (reflective as of December 7) for non-residential property, multi-residential property and business premises whereby the value changed greater than 5% from the last preliminary 2013 assessment value that was communicated. If you are an AEC client and have any questions regarding these updated values, please contact Jill McKenna via email or directly at 403.265.0271 x315. Please find below communication from the City of Calgary on the 2013 Customer Review Period.
