Do I need a permit to install a fence?

A permit is required prior to the construction, reconstruction, modification, enlargement, extension, or alteration of a fence that exceeds seven feet in height. The City of Missouri City has adopted design standards for certain types of fencing including community fencing which is required along the perimeter of a residential subdivision, adjacent to a major street. Fence regulations are located within the city’s Zoning Ordinance.
