Does the city require a building permit for fences?

No building permit is required; however, a fence in the front yard must have written consent from all abutting property owners, including those directly across the street. Please submit this to the Planning & Zoning Division in City Hall on the third floor, or at planning@libertymo.gov. Additionally, the fence must be constructed so that it does not impede into the established site triangle if it is on a corner lot. Fences may be erected up to side and rear property lines without a permit as long as city construction, height, and material standards are respected. A Certificate of Appropriateness is required in historic districts. View our Fence Summary Guide for more information.
