A Zoning Permit is required. You must attach a plot plan to the permit showing where you plan to install the fence, including the type of fence (privacy/open picket), and the height. It is suggested that in order to maintain the fence, you allow ample room (1 to 2 feet) from your property line.
If you have questions about how to draw a plot plan, check out google and search "image of how to draw a plot plan." There are many examples available.
