(a) Chain Link Fencing. Permanent chain link fencing or similar materials (chicken wire, hog fencing, etc.) is prohibited in residential land use zoning districts in the Valley Region, except in those cases where it is not visible from the public right-of-way or where the fence does not extend in front of the primary structure and is camouflaged to the greatest extent possible with plantings or similar shrouding, and except in those cases where the use is adjacent to public rights-of-way in commercial and industrial zoning districts. Chain link fencing shall be allowed for temporary uses. In the Mountain Region, chain link fencing will be allowed when used in conjunction with other fencing materials (i.e., split-rail fencing) and when camouflaged to the greatest extent possible. In the Desert Region, the prohibition against chain link fencing will not apply.
(b) Barbed Wire/Razor Wire Fencing. Barbed wire and razor wire fencing shall be prohibited in residential land use zoning districts or adjacent to public rights-of-way in commercial and industrial zoning districts. Barbed wire, razor wire, or other sharp pointed material may only be used in the construction of a fence if it is at least six feet above ground level.
(c) Tarp Fencing. Tarp fencing shall be prohibited in all land use zoning districts.
(d) Electrified Fencing. The use of electrified fencing or wires in conjunction with any fence, wall, roof, hedge, or by itself along the property lines of a parcel within any land use zoning district is prohibited unless required by the law or a regulation of the city, the County, the State, Federal Government, agency, or as a condition of approval. The fencing may be allowed within the interior of a parcel if buffered from other properties by a separate barrier.
