Where may I construct a fence on my property?
A fence is any partition, hedge, structure, wall, or gate erected as a dividing marker, barrier, or enclosure and located along the boundary or within the required yard. Fences must be located on an individual’s property unless the owner of the adjoining property agrees, in writing, that such fence may be erected on the property line. Fences located in the front yard may be no taller than 3 ½ feet. Fences taller than 7 feet (with a maximum height of 8 feet) above grade require a building permit. Fences 7 feet or less do not require a building permit.
