Why am I paying this Assessment if I don’t live in New Albany?
The New Albany Community Authority District originally was comprised of properties owned by The New Albany Company. These properties are located in the City of New Albany, the City of Columbus and Plain Township. Other developers have included new residential developments that are in the Plain Local school district. The City of New Albany passed a resolution in 1995 that requires new development to be included in the district. Please see District Communities for more information on which developments are included.
What does the Assessment (Community Development Charge) pay for?
The Community Development Charge is to cover the construction cost of the New Albany Plain Local High School, Fodor Road, partial funding of the Plain Township Fire Station and the purchase of a Ladder Truck for the Plain Township Fire Department. See Community Projects for more details.
