Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance amends Section 16.04.200 of the Metro Code pertaining to fence aesthetics. This Code section currently regulates the use of electric and barbed wire fences, and limits the types of materials that can be used in fence construction. This ordinance would add another fence regulation to prohibit fence cross beams and bracing from being oriented toward the street or adjacent properties.
