Fences and Walls

  • Fences and walls may not exceed 6.5 feet in height except when built around tennis courts (where they may go up to 10 feet in height).
  • Walls or fences located along a street line must be set back 18 inches from the front property line if the wall or fence is over 30 inches in height. On corner lots, special line-of-sight regulations apply.
  • Zoning and building permits need not be obtained to erect fences or walls; however, if questions remain, contact the Planning Department at (814)-234-7109 or send an email before you begin installation.
