Can I put a fence on my property line?
Yes. Fences are allowed to be up to 6 feet tall in a residential area, 8 feet in commercial and 10 feet in industrial districts. Fences over three feet tall in residential districts are limited to side and rear of property. Front yard fences are allowed in commercial and industrial districts. They are also allowed in residential districts as well, however they are limited to 3 feet in height and must be decorative in nature. Examples would be split rail fences, wrought iron fences and picket fences. It should be noted that, although you may fence in an easement, if any work needs to be done in the easement that would require the removal of the fence, you are responsible for its removal and replacement (if you choose to replace it).
