What rules apply to residential fences?
In front yards fences may be up to 4-feet in height provided that they are at least 75% open (typically chain link and split rail type fencing). In side yards fences maybe up to 4-feet in height provided that they are at least 50% open (typically picket type fencing). In rear yards fences may be up to 6-feet in height and less than 50% open (typically stockade and privacy type fencing). The finished side of the fence is required to face outward (supports and framing inward). Fencing materials are not regulated but a Zoning Certificate is required for all fences before installation.
