Does the City require a permit for a fence?

Our Planning & Zoning now requires fences to be approved by a City Planner before construction. You can apply for a fence permit online. Please note: the fence must be constructed so that it does not impede into the established site triangle if it is on a corner lot. Fences may be erected up to side and rear property lines without a permit as long as City construction, height, and material standards are respected. A Certificate of Appropriateness is required in historic districts. That application is also available online
