What are the regulations regarding fencing?

By their very nature, fences normally encroach into the setback area. The County therefore does not regulate them. It is up to you where to put it, what it looks like, and which way it faces.

How close to the property line can I install a fence?

It is suggested that your fence be installed some measurable distance on your side of the property line. Placing it exactly on the property line, or on the neighbor’s side, is not recommended.

Is a building permit required?

The current (2012) building code does not require a building permit for most typical fences. If you want an atypical fence, please contact the Zoning Administrator and/or the Building Official.
