What do I need to do if I want to build a fence?

The homeowner can obtain a permit to build a fence or they can hire a contractor. If a contractor does the work then he/she will pull the permit. A plot plan or survey is needed along with the fence permit so that we can evaluate property lines, easements, set-backs, etc. that affect where fences might be installed. The criteria for materials, height, and other specifics are regulated by the Planning and Zoning Department. Approval from the Homeowner’s Association might be required. Please consult the subdivision covenants for those requirements. The City cannot enforce covenants. That is specifically at the discretion of the Homeowner’s Association.
