A zoning permit is required for the construction and/or replacement of fencing. In residential and commercial zoning districts, fencing or screening within front yards shall not exceed 42 inches above the established front yard grade. Fencing or screening in side and rear yards shall be at most 72 inches above the established yard grade. Mounding soil to elevate a fence higher than the surrounding grade is prohibited. All fencing shall have the finished side, with no exposed structural supports, face toward the street right-of-way, or if placed on a property line, the finished side of the fence shall face the abutting property. Fencing in front yards must be placed at least five front from the street right-of-way (property line) if fencing is solid in nature (visibility).
