Tax Assessment Rolls

Welcome to Norwich New York!

To City residents,
We are approaching one year since the pandemic begin. We still have so much uncertainty on what lies ahead, but I hold hope that with the vaccine being distributed we can get back to life that looks a little more like what it used to. I am amazed at this community and how we have worked together to support those in need. I have never been more proud to call Norwich and Chenango County my home.

I would like to thank the Norwich Fire Department and Norwich City Police Department for continuing to provide services while managing the safety of staff and community members. I would also like to thank the Emergency Management Director, A Jones, for his continued collaboration with the County Emergency Management Office and the County Health Department and the guidance provided to the city staff and residents.

I hope with the communities' continued diligence on keeping gatherings to a minimum, maintaining social distance and wearing masks when necessary that events that have been a part of Norwich for years will return soon.
Mayor Sastri

The wonders of Norwich have been attracting people since before it even had a name and it hasn't slowed down since. People are often amazed at how much diversity you can find in the two square miles that make up the City of Norwich! It has long been the destination for agribusiness, museums, shopping, dining, manufacturing, and simply relaxing. It's filled with contrasts: old and new, country charm and modern sophistication.

Take a stroll and you're likely to see one of several houses of worship, a craft or art gallery, assorted restaurants, and many clothing and gift shops. For visitors, there are motels and B&Bs to offer comfortable lodging while visiting relatives, catching a performance at the Chenango Arts Council or seeing a movie at the Colonia Theatre, enjoying the County Fair, the Antiques Fair, or just out for a drive to see the colorful autumn leaves. For those who enjoy history, there's the Museum District, home to the Bullthistle Model Railroad Society Museum, the Northeast Classic Car Museum and the Chenango County Historical Museum. And don't miss seeing the real gateman's tower (1907) which was used as the logo for the City; the old train station that is City Hall; the Norwich Fire Department with their 1895 LaFrance steam fire truck in a glass room on the side of the building, and the big fireman's bell outside.

There's so much to see and do, you'll love your visit to Norwich, New York!
