In general, approved fence and wall materials include stone, brick, wood, chain-link, and iron. Synthetic products or other material as approved by the City Manager may also be used. The smooth finished side of the fence or wall shall be the side of the fence that faces outward from the yard being fenced. All of the framing or support members shall face inward of the yard being fenced. No fence shall be erected to a height exceeding six feet. Fences may be placed on the side or rear property line, but may not be placed closer to the street than the front of the main building.
Decorative fences may be constructed of any material except barbed wire, razor barb, woven or chain-link. Decorative fences may be erected to a maximum height of six feet. However, when placed closer to the street than the front of the main building on any lot, the maximum height of the fence shall be three feet, and shall not be sight obscuring. For corner lots, when decorative fences are constructed in a triangle formed by measuring thirty feet along each street right-of-way line, the maximum height shall be two feet, six inches above the grade. Decorative fences may be placed on the side or rear property line and may not be placed closer to the street or road than the street or road right-of-way line.
A Zoning Permit is required for any fence constructed.
