Ed Crapo's Introduction to the Alachua County Property Appraiser's Website.
Hello, I'm Ed Crapo, your Alachua County Property Appraiser. You know in 1998 simply having a website was a big step forward for us in terms of increasing the accessibility and transparency of our office. Admittedly the data and information was pretty static and updates were infrequent. Now we consider our site to be a virtual extension of our office. We regularly update data, information and features such as our property search and mapping applications. We are constantly looking at ways to improve and enhance our site. Recently we deployed a new web based inquiry and appeal application. And we are evaluating an online homestead application as well as a tangible property return application. Here at the property appraisers office we are constantly striving to bring additional services and information to our site that will enhance your experience and make our site as useful as possible. These days it seems that everything is changing rapidly, technology, the economy, legislation and on and on. With your help and suggestions we will continue to keep this site relevant and valuable. This site is the product of the synergy between you and the ideas of our highly professional staff. I'm proud to share with you the results of this collaboration. We invite you to call (352-374-5230) or email us with any additional ideas or questions.
