Title: Parcels for King County with Address, Property and Ownership Information
Feature Count: 0
Feature Type: Polygon
Abstract: A parcel based layer providing an address based on spatial overlay where available, and a range of other property related attributes. To produce PARCEL_ADDRESS_AREA , PARCEL_AREA is spatially joined to ADDRESS_POINT to obtain address attributes, KROLLIDX_AREA to obtain a Kroll page reference, INTRMPAA_AREA to obtain potential annexation area attributes, and PLSS_AREA to obtain section-township-range. It is also joined on PIN to RPACCT_EXTR, PARCEL_EXTR, CONDOCOMPLEX_EXTR, and CONDOUNIT_EXTR to obtain property, taxpayer, and assessment related attributes from the KC Assessor office. In many cases multiple addresses are spatially coincident with one parcel, and in those cases only one arbitrarily selected address is used to populate the address attribute information.
Purpose: Provide an external GIS based source of address, property, and owner information to the King County integrated permitting system. This layer was designed to meet the specific needs of the Permit Integration implementation team. A secondary benefit of the production of this layer is to supply a combination of parcel number and address information that is updated regularly and benefits from the continuous maintenance of parcels by the Dept. of Assessments and of addresses by the E-911 Program Office. It is important to note that not all parcels have structures with assigned addressed, and that some parcels have multiple addresses. In the later case this layer provides only one address for each parcel, and that address is determined by the database structure. There is currently no designation of a primary address.
