How high can my fence be?

A fence may be up to six feet in height in the back yard and side yard (to the rear of the required front yard) of any dwelling. An additional two feet of lattice may be placed on top of a fence or wall, so that the height does not exceed eight feet.

In the front yard of any dwelling, a fence may not exceed three feet in height.

A fence may not be installed within 25-feet of the street corner of a corner lot. The Community Development Director may allow such a fence if it would not create a solid visual barrier or safety hazard within the immediate area. In no case shall a fence, hedge, wall or screen exceed three feet in height when situated within twenty five feet of street corner or corner lot.
