The City of Kalamazoo maintains a database of publicly available information about properties located within the city limits. This database includes each property's zoning & land information, utility billing, permits, invoices, assessed value, and tax records. This information is available to browse using a system called BS&A Online. It's the same system used for many online services like some payments, applying for permits, or searching for registered rental properties.
To get started, visit the BS&A Online Portal. This is where you can find all publicly available property information.
View BS&A Online
Near the top of the BS&A Online screen, you will find a search box. To the left of the search box, you can adjust what records you are looking for and what you want to search by. By default, it is set to search all records by address. This is usually a great place to start, but if you are comfortable using BS&A Online you can adjust this for more specific searches.
Enter the address you are looking for and hit enter or press the search button to the right of the search box. The search may return a list or a single result. Click the result that you are searching for.
At the top of the property record you will find photographs of the property along with summary information. Immediately below this you will see tabs that will navigate to Tax Information, Building Department, and Utility Bill Info. By default, the Property Information tab is selected.
