A permit is not required for the construction of a fence under 6’ tall. The fence can be built on the property line. We recommend hiring a surveyor to delineate your property line. In any single-family (RS) zone, the maximum height of a fence in the front yard cannot exceed 3-1/2’ in height for the first 20' from the property line. For a street side yard property line, the maximum fence height is 3-1/2' for the first twenty feet from the front yard property line. However, open-wire, welded-wire, chain-link, split-rail or similar fences may be as tall as five feet in height. The remaining portion of the property can have a fence height not to exceed 6 feet in height. Please email Planning@puyallupwa.gov for more information.
