The Municipal Planning Board is going to be rethinking their stance on electric fences in their upcoming March 23 meeting.
According to their agenda (click HERE) the MPB will be amending section 58.590 of the Land Development Code, more specifically, they will be voting to allow electrified fences, provided they are permitted through a “clear and consistent permitting process”.
Currently the city code doesn’t say much about electrified fences, other than to ban them from residential and office districts. Which actually implies that they’re allowed in non-residential and non-office districts.
City staff is requesting updates to the code in order to better restrict their use.
