Are permits required to install a fence?

Yes permits are required to install fences.  There are regulations on material, location and height.  You may place your fence on your property line but you must know exactly where your property line is located.  A copy of the plot plan is not a legal survey and does not show exactly where the property line is located.  If you are unsure, you may need to obtain a survey to stay on your property.  Fence post must be faced inside the yard with the fencing attached to the outside of the post unless your property abuts a non-residential district or there has been an agreement made between you and the owner of the lot adjacent to the fence.  To complete the work this agreement is best done at City Hall with both parties present.
