I'm putting a fence on my property. Do I need a permit?

Harrison Township requires a fence permit. Fence regulations state that fences in the front yard may be a maximum of 3.5 feet tall and they must be one foot back from the sidewalk and cannot interfere with visibility along a driveway. Corner lots are considered to have two front yards. Fences in rear or side yards may be a maximum height of six feet. For more information, view Fence RegulationsFence Permit Application.
