Regulations Regarding Fencing in Prior Lake

We’ve gotten many questions over the years about installations. To make things easier on you, here are some of the most common questions we get about fence installations in Prior Lake. We do our best to keep these up-to-date, but we also recommend you check your city’s website or look at their fencing information page

Where can I place my fence on the property?

A fence can be placed within the boundaries of your lot. It cannot go onto others (with a legal agreement,) and should not fall on Public property either. Fence height will also depict where the fence can go on your property. Do not dig without the layout of utilities underground on your property, because it is illegal to even block any natural drainage.

For lots with specialized, or irregular cases, call the Building Planning Division at (952) 447-9810.

Do I need to notify my neighbors? If so, when?

Contact is not required by law when constructing a fence on your own land. If you are hooking a fence to a neighbor’s, or if you will be using their land just during installation, their approval is necessary.

If your fence will reach the property line, it can be a beneficial idea to contact a neighbor about having a shared fence. This boundary fence could serve both of the property owner’s needs, but be half the cost of creating a fence on your own.

Do I need a fence permit?

A permit will always be required, but the type of permit will depend on your design. Fences over 7 feet require a building permit and those below 7 feet require a zoning permit. You will need to have a good understanding of your individual property and prospective fence before applying. This will mean obtaining a certificate of survey.

Who calls the utilities when installing a fence?

Before fence installation in Prior Lake, Northland Fence will take all steps toward marking underground utility lines. This will occur by contacting Gopher State One to obtain the appropriate information.

A self-installer should call Gopher State One before digging at (651) 454-8388.

What are the height restrictions on fences in Prior Lake, MN?

Fences in the front setback must not exceed 4 feet in height and have additional design restrictions. Any fence behind the front setback of your home may be extended up to 6 feet. Fences are limited to 3 feet within a 25-foot sight triangle where driveways meet the road.

Can I build my fence on an easement?

It is not legal to build a fence on an easement without proper authorization. These can contain important city utilities that need to be accessed at any time. The Prior Lake City Engineer can provide approval to build your fence around an easement, but you will need documentation of the scenario.

Are there any design or material restrictions?

Fences in the front setback of your property must be at least 50% open for the passage of light and air, but cannot be a chain link design. This limits front fences to more decorative designs. Design choices, like color suggestions, will be mostly available by contacting the local Homeowners Association. Other material restrictions are out of safety for residents of your neighborhood; such as barbed-wire and electrical fences.
