Here are the things you should do prior to installing a fence and here are some specifics for the Borough of Hopatcong, Sussex County, NJ. You must know your property lines. This can be done by referring to your property survey. You may need to have a land surveying company put stakes in the ground to physically mark your property lines. Then once you have a layout, and have chosen the type of fence you like, contact the Borough to make sure it is compliant with the Borough’s fence codes and ordinances (view-able below). Contact the Borough’s Zoning Office (info below), to verify if your plan is permissible and to acquire a Fence Zoning Permit (application below). We at Academy Fence are here to help you with every step of the process. We are ready to give you a fence cost estimate. Give us a call.
