Danbury was not an original colonial grant, but was formed from part of the town of Alexandria to the north. In 1794, a group of Alexandria residents petitioned the state legislature to separate Alexandria into two towns due to the inconvenience of having a mountain divide the town, making it difficult for all the residents to gather in a single place. The petition was granted in 1795, and the lower piece was incorporated as Danbury in that year. The name was suggested by a settler from Danbury, Connecticut. Later more land was added to Danbury from Hill and Wilmot.

CYCLICAL ASSESSING WORK HAS BEGUN

Representatives from the Town of Danbury's contracted assessing service, Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC are currently conducting inspections to comply with the State's requirement for five-year inspections on all properties. The data collectors will visit roughly 25% of all properties each year to check for accurate measurements and to verify all pertinent data of each improvement. This process helps us keep the data as fresh as possible in anticipation of the town wide revaluation that takes place every 5 years per the State Constitution.

Appraisal representatives will be visiting the selected cycle properties to measure the exterior of the buildings and request an interior inspection, if an adult is home. Interior inspections are very important to ensure accurate, fair and equitable assessments for all properties. We encourage you to provide information that may not be apparent to the appraiser at the time of inspection such as: seasonal wetness, cracked foundations, leaking roofs, easements, etc.

All data collectors from CNP have ID badges. A list of CNP personnel and their vehicle/license information is available at the Town Hall.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions please call the Selectmen's Office at 768-3313.
