Do I need a permit to install a fence?
No, a permit is not required and the Zoning Ordinance does not specify the location of fences. Property owners may decide to locate a fence on the property line. We do, however, recommend that property owners communicate with their neighbor regarding the proposed location of a fence so that there are no misunderstandings regarding the location of the property line.

Electrical fences shall be protected if within three feet of a property line and any electrical fence along privacy fences shall be located within the privacy fence. Bona fide farms are exempt from this requirement.
