Fences and Walls
The information provided is for single-family residential properties, for other uses contact the One Stop Shop at 480-312-2500.
Height Limitation on walls and fences - Basic Zoning Ordinance Sec. 7.104
Permits are required when:
Building any fence over 3-feet in height. No permit required for constructing Wall/Fence which is less than 3' in height. (Site plan approval will verify setbacks and property lines).
REPAIRING A FENCE?
Before removing the fence, check with the One Stop Shop on-call planner to make sure the fence is not non-conforming. Non-conforming fences that are removed cannot be replaced in the same, non-conforming location and will be required to meet current zoning specifications related to placement, height, etc.
