Board of Review

If you feel your property assessment is incorrect, you may file an objection  with the Board of Assessors.

You will receive written notification of the Board of Assessors decision. If you choose to continue your appeal to the Board of Review, you must notify the City Assessor's office in writing within 15 days of the notice.

The Board of Review is a statutorily required local board. It is a quasi-judicial (court-like) body empowered with three primary duties:

BOR can adjust assessments when they have been proven incorrect by sworn oral testimony.

BOR can correct errors or omissions in the descriptions or computations found on the assessment roll.

BOR can check the assessment roll for omitted property and double assessments.

The City of Kenosha Board of Review is comprised of 5 residents appointed by the Mayor. The municipal clerk arranges meetings, prepares agendas, records proceedings and issues notices of determination prior to completing the final statement of assessment.

Dream Playground at Petzke Park

dream playground liberty swingdream playground liberty swingdream playground liberty swing

The Dream Playground Project Founders partnered with the Kenosha Achievement Center to raise funds for a fully accessible playground at Petzke Park (2820 14th Avenue). The 15,000- square-foot Dream Playground opened in October of 2015 as the City's first fully accessible playground. More than 3,000 volunteers worked to raise support and construct this amazing playground.

The mission of the Kenosha Dream Playground Project was to develop a safe, fully inclusive, accessible playground that allows children of all abilities to play together, learn from each other, value each others differences and find the strength to overcome challenges -- thus creating a truly integrated environment where compassion and acceptance can be found.

Highlights of the playground include:

The playground incorporates elements of the Kenosha community, such as:

Dream Playground Fence Pickets
