Are there any requirements for fences?

Yes. The maximum height of any fence is 6 feet or 8 feet with a permit. Fences located within the front yard of a residence (first 20 feet measured from behind the sidewalk) have a maximum height of 3 feet 6 inches (42 inches). Fences located on the side yard of a corner lot are required to be 5 feet behind the sidewalk. Contact the Planning Division for specific details at 530-661-5820.
