Board of Assessment Review

The Board of Assessment Review and the Zoning Board of Appeals were combined in 2021 to form the Regulatory Advisory Board. After careful review the Auburn City Council is moving forward to dissolve the Regulatory Advisory Board and reinstate both the Board of Assessment Review and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

The City of Auburn is actively seeking volunteers to fill the seats on these two boards. If you are interested in serving on either, you will find the volunteer application under "Current Vacancies."

Please contact Karen Scammon, City Assessor, at with any questions concerning the Board of Assessment Review.
