Fencing / Screening

  • It is unlawful to allow a fence to lean more than 10 degrees or to have missing, loose, or broken slats or panels.     
  • No fence is allowed to have symbols, writings, and other graffiti; except for signs which pertain to the address or occupancy of the property. 
  • A fence, structure, or gate is required to completely surround a swimming pool to prevent small children from inadvertently wandering into the pool.     
    • The fence, structure, or gate shall not be lower than four feet in height, and not have any openings that will allow a four-inch diameter sphere to pass through; and all gates should have a self-closing and self-latching device designed to keep gates closed and locked at all times. The latching device must be located within the top 1/3 of the gate.
