Do I need a permit to build a fence?
For a fence six (6) feet high or less, a Building Permit is not required. All fences of any height now require a Zoning Permit. For fences over six feet high, follow the directions given for applying for a Building Permit. You may call 937-333-3883 with any questions regarding building permits and fences. Contact the Zoning Administrator prior to constructing a fence to secure the Zoning Permit and to determine any special conditions that apply to your property. Call 937-333-3903 or visit their webpage.
