Dilapidated Fences

Dilapidated Fences


It is unlawful to allow a fence to lean more than 10 degrees or to have 5% missing, loose or broken slats or panels.

No fence is allowed to have symbols, writings or other graffiti; except for signs which pertain to the address or occupancy of the property.

Barbed wire and electric fences are prohibited in most residential districts. There are also special requirements for fences constructed in industrial and agricultural districts.

A building permit is required for the installation of any fence, replacement of over 50% of an existing fence or construction of an accessory structure greater than 120 square feet.
