Property appraisal season is upon us. The Bexar County Appraisal District is scheduled to mail out property appraisals April 1, and the values of the neighborhoods close to downtown are expected to continue their skyrocketing pace. Why is this happening? How does the property appraisal process work? Will a city-initiated study of the process yield tax relief for property owners?

Join Dorćol Distilling + Brewing and San Antonio Heron for this panel featuring Bexar County's chief appraiser.

"Engage SA: Property Appraisal" is one of three civically-minded panels on our city's most pressing issues being held at Dorcol in April.
