Do I need a permit to erect a fence?

No. There are no setback requirements for a fence. However, the fence must be located on your property and you are not allowed to trespass onto an adjoining property to maintain the fence. Fences on property borders must not exceed 6 feet in height above the adjoining grade. The fence should not block visibility for vehicle drivers nor be in the road right of way.
