We have a 6-foot maximum fence height. In the 16 months I've been at this City, it has tyically been a very easy thing to enforce. However, someone came in with this illustration: http://www.wrcla.org/cedarprojects/f...ivacyfence.asp
The fence, presumably would be 6 feet high. However, the "roof" over the gate and the flowered area would be more like 8 or 9 feet high. They are attached to the fence, but are they really fence? If so, then I guess this would not be permissible (that is where I am leaning).
If not, then where would the line be drawn in terms of how high things like this can be.
The person that brough this in asked whether he could put the flowered part set back a few inches from (yet still overhanging) the fence. I told him we'd treat it as an accessory structure and it would need to be five feet back.
Has anyone had to deal with these before. There is not really a place for it in our code.
