FENCES, SITE WALLS, AND TREES
Because original and later historic fences and site walls are significant architectural features, repair
or replace whenever possible with new materials that duplicate the original or later historic features.
Preserve cast and wrought iron fences for their high historic significance and rarity.
Do not place new fences and site walls to prevent or restrict views of buildings from a public way.
Privacy fences at the side and back of the property are allowed.
Make the design of fences appropriate in scale, materials, and architectural style to the building, its
site and the surrounding properties.
Although the Commission does not regulate landscaping, it encourages the preservation of the existing
natural contours and topography of the landscape. Keep mature trees that contribute to the overall
character of the district.
