Where can I place my fence in relation to the property line?
There is no municipal ordinance which specifies where fences can or must be located, we do however recommend
a. Place all fence posts or structures completely on your own land. There is often a portion of land between the traveled way and your property line, you must be particularly careful that the fence is on your property, if you locate the fence in the right-of-way, you will be asked to remove it.
b. Fences require normal maintenance, such as painting etc. this should be done while standing on your land not your neighbors. There is no inherent right permitting trespass on the land of another to maintain your fence.
c. Any fence located near a driveway on your property or adjacent to another’s should be set back sufficiently to permit adequate sight distance from a vehicle attempting to use either driveway and avoid the potential accidents with pedestrians using the sidewalks etc.
d. A fence can go out to the water; there are no set-backs.
