I have been confounded by requests before, but this was a new one that I did not expect: An applicant within an R-2 district (allows 1-acre subdivision lots in unincorporated areas of rural county wants to install an electric fence (220-v) at the property line. There is nothing in the zoning or building codes that specifically govern an electrified fence.
I recommended opposition due to the public endangerment created by the electric fence even though the applicant may place signs stating the danger. A house on an adjacent lot may have occupants with children or grandchildren under the age of five, and the warning signs may not be readable at night or may be difficult to read.
Has anyone else dealt with this problem? I hope to provide a response soon.
