Know if I need a permit to build a fence?

A Building Permit is required prior to construction for any fences over six feet (6') and masonry walls over three feet (3').

Fencing, walls, and hedges shall be reduced to a maximum of three feet six inches (3'6") in height in the required front yard and side yard abutting a street. 

Fences cannot be constructed in the public right-of-way. 

The City of Gonzales does not determine where the property lines are or where fences should be. Surveyors can determine where property lines are.
