Using The Interactive Maps Web Site

Locating a Parcel

  1. To find a parcel, click on the “Locate” tab next to the “Map Layers” tab. You must type in an address in the “ Type an address or intersection” box. The “Label on Address/ Intersection” box below the address box is optional.  This box allows the user to add a label to the map.
  2. Once the box or boxes are filled out, click on the “Find Address” button. The map will then zoom in to the requested area at a scale of 1” = 250’.
  3. To view the parcel boundaries, you must check the “Parcels” checkbox under “Map Layers” tab in the upper right corner of the page, then click the “Update Map” button.
  4. You can zoom in or out by checking the ”zoom in “ or “zoom out” radio button on top of the map frame, then click on the target in the map. At the bottom of the map, the scale changes as you zoom in or zoom out.

The following is an example of the map produced by following these steps using the City Hall address (1505 Precinct Line Rd).

 

 

Querying Property Information On a Selected Parcel

Once the user has located the parcel, additional information can be obtained such as land value, improvement value, owner’s name, owner’s address, etc.  This information is obtained from the Tarrant County Appraisal District’s tax roll, which is released in September of every year. When the new data is released, the website will be updated with the new information.

In order to view property information, the following steps must be taken:

  1. Click the “Query a Point” radio button on the top of the map frame.
  2. With your cursor, click on the parcel for which you want information.

The selected parcel will be highlighted in green, and below the map, the owner’s name, address, lot Total Value, structure Living Area, Addition Name, Lot and Block, Mapsco Map, and a breakdown of the Total Value will be displayed..

 

Zoning

The zoning layer allows the user to find out which zoning district a particular parcel falls within.  The zoning layer can either be displayed by an outline of the districts or by shading the districts. 

The following steps will guide you through displaying the City Of Hurst Zoning Districts:

  1. Check the “Zoning” checkbox on the “Map Layers” tab.
  2. Click either the “Shaded” or “Outline” radio button below the checkbox.
  3. Click the “Update Map” button.

 

After you turn on the zoning layer, each district will display a zone district abbreviation. If you click on the “ Legend “ link located just right of the “Zoning” check box, a legend for the zoning district shades will display in a new window.

 

School Districts

The following steps will guide you through displaying the School Districts within the City of Hurst:

  1. Turn off any unwanted layers either by clicking the checkbox of that layer or clicking the “Clear Map” button below the layer list to turn off all layers.
  2. Check the “School Districts” layer checkbox
  3. Click the “Update Map” button. The map will return with the various Texas Independent School Districts shaded in distinct colors. A corresponding legend will display under the School District layer name.

 

Aerial Photography

In order to display the aerial photography, the following steps, which are similar to those of “locating a parcel”, must be taken:

  1. If other layers are currently on, click the “Clear Map” button below the layer list or click the checkboxes of layers that are on to turn them off. 
  2. Click on the “Locate” tab on the upper right corner. Type in the address to search for the target.
  3. Check on one of the aerial photography layer under “Map Layers” to display that year’s aerial photography. Click the “Update Map” button.  

 

 

Find a Facility or Subdivision Without Inputting Address

If a user wants to find a city facility or school, or if the name of the subdivision is known, the quickest way to find it is to select their name from the appropriate drop-down lists located on “Locate” tab.

For example, if we want to look for Chisholm Park, in the “Go to a facility” box, click on the drop-down arrow, find “Chisholm Park” and select it, then click on “Go” button.

 

The facility will be highlighted. The related parcel, school district and zoning information are displayed below the map.

 

 

Querying for Sale and Lease Properties

The City of Hurst has partnered with the North Texas Commercial Data Exchange to provide a listing of current commercial properties for sale or lease.

  • From the “Business” tab, you can either select to view the locations of specific types of for sale or lease properties (i.e. Industrial, Retail) or you can query properties for sale or lease based on the square footage of the building, size of the lot or street name.

To view all locations of a specific type of property available, click the associated layer’s check box and then click the “Search” button to display all of those types of properties below the list of query options and display their location on the map.

If you just want to search specific sizes of properties, enter that information in the provided text boxes, then click the “Search” button to retrieve a list of matching records below the list of query options.

  • To view more detailed property information, click on the property address hyperlink to return property information, area census data, area labor data and area consumer expenditures. The map also zooms in to the location you have selected. This detailed information is broken down into two categories, a Site Report and Radius Summary information.

Your selection will also return properties with similar attributes within the same radius specified.
