How Tall Can I Build My Fence?

In residential districts, fences may be constructed up to 4 feet tall in the front yard setback (generally 15 feet from the front property line) and up to 6 feet tall in the rest of the yard. 

In commercial and industrial districts, fences may be constructed up to 4 feet tall in the front yard setback (generally 10 feet for commercial districts and 20 feet for industrial districts) and up to 8 feet tall in the rest of the yard. 

If chain link (wire-woven) fences are used, they must be manufactured of corrosion proof materials of at least 11 1/2 gauge.
