The City of Bentonville determines the valuation of a structure using the ICC Building Valuation Data Table. A copy of the table is available on the International Building Code’s website at www.iccsafe.org. The valuation table is updated every six months to provide an up-to-date “average” construction cost per square foot. Once the valuation is determined the following table is used to calculate permit fees.
