When is a Fence Permit required?
A fence permit is required for any new residential or commercial fence. Routine maintenance and minor repairs to a fence may not require a Fence Permit as deemed by City staff. If reconstruction of a damaged nonconforming fence is to be done, a fence permit application will need to be submitted to the Planning Division. Planning staff will determine whether repairs or reconstruction of a nonconforming fence will need to be brought into conformance upon review of the application.

Note: A “nonconforming fence” means a fence which does not meet the fence requirements in the City Code such as height, material, setback, or clear zone.
