This change is consistent, and in alignment with the Nye County Resolution # 2004-29, wherein it was established that valuation per square foot for various types of construction is to be based on the most recent edition of the Building Valuation Data published in the Building Standards as published by the International Code Council. 

This transition will take effect July 1st 2022 and will update each year on July 1st to the most recent tables published, to be consistent with the latest Building Valuation Data as established in Nye County Resolution # 2004-29. 

The Nye County Building and Safety Department ensures that all residential, commercial, and other construction meets or exceeds the minimum requirements of codes that have been adopted by Nye County, within the Pahrump Regional Planning District (PRPD).
