What do I need to do before installing a fence?

All fences require the issuance of a Building Permit. The cost of the permit is based on the length of the fence. We strongly recommend that a survey is used to determine the location of property lines before installing a fence. If a fence is proposed to be installed over a utility easement a permit will not be issued without permission from the affected agency to encroach into the easement. The Zoning Code as it relates to the installation of a fence can be viewed in Section 280-27.
