Yes; see Sec. 23-5.2.2(3) of the Zoning Ordinance. Generally speaking, residential fences cannot exceed 10 feet in height, except in the front yard where the limit is 4 feet. Under typical circumstances, zoning approval is not needed for fences, nor is there a requirement that the “pretty” side of a fence face a certain direction. Barbed or electrified fences have special restrictions. Corner lots have special "sight distance" restrictions at the intersection of the streets. Property owners are encouraged to contact Zoning staff with any fence-related questions.
