Ridgewood NJ, on Wednesday night, 04/07, members of the Ridgewood Village Council will discuss the possibility of changing existing zoning ordinances to permit six (6) foot high fencing along the SIDE and REAR yards of any single-family or multi-family residential dwelling. Line of sight height restrictions would still be placed on the erection of fencing adjacent to street corners. Existing residential property zoning ordinances in Ridgewood limit fencing height to four (4) feet unless a regulated pool is being enclosed, or if the residential property abuts a property developed primarily for non-residential use.
Here are the restrictions pertaining to residential fencing in communities contiguous to Ridgewood:
Glen Rock – four (4) feet
Hawthorne – six (6) feet
Ho-Ho-Kus – six (6) feet
Midland Park – five (5) feet
Paramus – six (6) feet
Waldwick – four (4) feet [six (6) feet with pool]
Washington Township – six (6) feet
Wyckoff – six (6) feet
What is your opinion of six (6) foot fencing becoming the new norm?
