Orlando, FL asked in Civil Rights, Estate Planning, Construction Law and Municipal Law for Florida

Q: In Eatonville FL, we need to know if there are exceptions for Code of Ordinances, sec. 60.77, such as noise or privacy.

We live in a corner lot, and we would like to build a 6 foot fence on the property perimeter. We'd like to know how far can we take the fence to the line property, and if we can consider one of the "fronts" of a corner property as a "side". Only the "main" frontal area would vision, so if we leave it unfenced there should be no problem to vision; is there any special law or exception such as noise, or privacy that we could use to build a fence 6ft fence in all except the main front?

A: The Eatonville Code of Ordinances is here:


A brief review of it doesn't reveal any problem with what you want to do, but of course you should contact the Planning Department and get a permit. They should be able to guide you.
