Zoning ordinance regulates the type and height of fences on residential and agricultural property. Here are some of the requirements:
· Maximum height in the front yard is three (3) feet.
· Maximum height in the rear yard is six (6) feet.
· Fences made of combustible materials must be set back from property lines a minimum of four (4) feet if used as a perimeter fence. Gates made of combustible materials that are no wider than twelve (12) feet are an exemption to this setback requirement.
Generally, fences less than 6 feet in height do not require building permits; however, exceptions may apply so always check with the Community Development Department at 623-932-3005.
