Is a permit needed to install a fence?

If the fence is less than or equal to 6 feet tall and is located on private property, then a permit is not required. If the fence is over 6’ tall, it will need to be windstorm certified. A fence cannot extend into the city’s right-of-way or block an easement or alley. Tapering the height of the fence so that it gradually gets shorter as it gets closer to the road is a common practice, but not required.
