Understanding the Rules Around Fence Height Is Key to Avoiding Costly Mistakes
If there’s anything worse than having to pay thousands of dollars for a new fence, it would have to be removing a new fence and replacing it because it violated city code on allowable height or required setbacks. Requirements can vary between zoning areas. Before you begin a fence project on your property, consult the Planning Division for guidelines by emailing planner@elkgrovecity.org or calling 916-478-2265. 

Join us for the State of the City Address
