Fence Placement on Residential Properties

Yorkville, IL
Fence Placement on Residential Properties

Should fences be allowed to extend beyond the front plane of the house? If so, should their appearance be regulated? (height, materials, etc.)

Ah the White Picket Fence... Rember back in the day when front yards had them right up to the sidewalk with that gate to get in the front yard. Was that so bad? The postman would look for the family dog before opening the gate to deliver your mail on the front porch. Its your property you pay BIG taxes to have it so if you want your fence then you should be able to have it.
