May I install a fence on my historic property?

Fences are permitted but have slightly different regulations in the Historic District. The maximum height for a fence on rear and interior side yards in the historic district is 6’-8”. On the front yards and some side yards, the maximum height for the fence is 4’ with 50% transparency. All new fences or changes to the style, size, and location of a fence require a Certificate of Appropriateness and may require a permit. The City also requires a permit to install a fence.
