Yes, an application to the Land Use Office is required along with a survey reflecting the location of the fencing. Fencing within a front yard is permitted with a maximum height of 4’ and it must be 50% open (i.e. picket fencing). Fencing in your side or rear yard is permitted to a maximum height of 6’ and can be solid/stockade. For properties on corner lots please see Question #10.
For properties with swimming pools, a building permit is also needed. Please contact the Building Department for additional requirements on fencing which is acting as a pool barrier.
