Do I need a Building Permit to put up a fence?

No, as long as the fence is less than six feet high and you are confident (with help from a plot plan or a Registered Land Surveyor) that it is located entirely on your property. However, fences within 35 feet of a street intersection may not be higher than 42 inches above grade, so as not to obstruct the line of sight of drivers at the intersection. This rule is enforced by the Police Department.
