The West Hartford Assessor’s Office will be adding high-resolution photographs to its database.

If you see one of the people pictured above taking a photo of your property, don’t be alarmed.

West Hartford Director of Assessment Joseph Dakers has announced that from now through Oct. 1, 2026, a project will be underway to add high-resolution photographs of all 22,481 real estate parcels to the existing database. The state mandates revaluation every five years, and this project is being undertaken in advance of the next revaluation in 2026.

“Images captured are integrated into the town’s assessment database and can be easily accessed through the Town of West Hartford Assessor’s website,” the town stated in an announcement. “Accuracy, transparency, and efficiency are central principles in property assessment procedures. Photos not only provide valuable visual evidence but also foster trust and understanding during the assessment process.”

In most cases the photo will be taken from the street, and the assessors will not enter private property without an attempt to notify the property owner in advance.

The assessors will carry identification and will drive clearly-marked vehicles identified with the Town of West Hartford emblem.


Any questions can be directed to the Assessor’s Office at 860-561-7418.

  • So how do we make formal complaints when these bozos inevitably mess our property up? The only thing worse than a busybody bureaucrat is a busybody bureaucrat who thinks they can trespass on private property.
