I want to put up a fence. What do I need to do?
A fence permit is required to construct a fence. You must submit a fence request form, along with a description of the type of fence (a photo, catalog page, or printout from a website is great), its height, and where it will be located (in the form of a drawing) to the Community Development Department, along with the fee. Once the application has been reviewed, it will either be approved or denied. Once you have your fence permit you may construct your fence, and once you are finished, please call us for a final inspection. You need not be home for the inspection. If your request is denied, then you may request an appeal. There is a fee and form involved with that.
