Do I need a building permit to construct a fence?

Generally fences are exempt from zoning regulations and therefore do not require a permit for construction. The only possible exception to this rule would be if the fence would create a vision obstruction at a street intersection. Check with the County Zoning Officer if there is a possible concern in this regard.
