Is there somewhere I can get information on fence regulations?

Is it possible to install a cement block fence (with a stone veneer) instead of the traditional wood? Are fences limited to 8ft in a residential area?

I am trying to cut down on the noise of children from my neighbor. I am sure he would sign off on anything I wanted to install.

Chris: Ordinance 02-11-130 regulates fence materials. You can view this ordinance on the Frisco Home Page under Ordinances and Resolutions. You can use cement block with a stone veneer. The maximum fence height is 8 ft. If you have other questions, please call 972-335-5580 and ask to speak with a Permit Technician.

Is a permit required to erect an arbor over a patio or over a gate in a fence?

John:
These are tough questions without knowing all the details.
Erecting an Arbor over a Patio will in most instances require a permit Our Plan Reviewers would need to see a Plot Plan showing the location on the lot. This is to check building lines, etc. before issuing a permit. The Arbor over the gate would need to be reviewed on a case to case basis. If the Arbor Addition could be construed as part of the fence, and the addition made the fence higher than the maximum allowable fence height height, there could be a problem. We can give you a better answer if you will contact our Permitting Department at 972-335-5580 and ask for a Permit Technician.
