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.
