As of April 1, 2021 construction of new fences and modification of legally existing fences where residential uses exist on parcels in residential Plan Areas no longer requires approval of a Fence Permit from the City if the fence design and installation complies with City Code Section 6.85.030. Use the RESIDENTIAL FENCE AND WALL STANDARDS checklist to determine compliance. Fences constructed or modified to be inconsistent with these standards may be subject to City Code violations and fines.
Residential Fence and Wall Standards checklist
New or modified fences on property where commercial, industrial, public service, and recreation uses exist or in areas outside of residential Plan Areas require approval of a Fence permit by the City.
