Does the city require a building permit for fences?

No building permit is required; however, fences must comply with city code. Please inquire with a Planner before you proceed with construction by calling 816.439.4543. If the property is on a corner lot, then the fence must be constructed so that it does not impede into the established site triangle. A Certificate of Appropriateness is required in historic districts. View our Fence Summary Guide for more information.
