FENCES

 

Fence, walls and hedges may not exceed 6 in height in any rear yard or side yard.

Sight obscuring fence may be installed up to 3 in height in a front yard.

Non-sight obscuring fence may be installed up to 4 in height in a front yard.

Nothing higher than 2 may be placed on a corner lot (within the 40 triangle sight zone. For more information, please call the Building Official).

No fence or hedge is allowed within 3 of a fire hydrant, mail box or driveway.

Trees should be trimmed to prevent obstruction of view.

Shrubs planted 5 apart or more are not considered a hedge.

Fences less than 6 in height do not require a building permit unless it will be installed on footings.
