Do I need a permit for a fence?
In most cases, no permit is required. However, if the fence is more than six feet tall, a permit is required. Fences can be built on the property line, but the height of the fence must be reviewed for compliance within the given zoning district. The rule of thumb is a six-foot-tall fence is allowed in rear and side yards while a four-foot-tall fence is the maximum height in the front yard, except vision triangles where the max height is three feet.
