The Assessor has implemented a new GIS site, it has overlayed the paper tax maps and other data onto some real world layers, this is a rough placement of the parcels and is "work in progress" the benefit is to get the parcel info, it is not to be used or considered "official". See the GIS link below, and "check" the "guest account" box.
