On February 9, 2016, City Council of the City of Leavenworth eliminated the requirement for a fence permit in conjunction with reducing and/or changing fence standards and sight distance obstructions in the residential district. These new rules can be found within the Leavenworth Municipal Code Chapter 18.24, or you can call City Hall at 548-5275. The fences must still comply with city code regulations when it comes to construction and location. You will still need to make sure you are in compliance with your Home Owners Association if your neighborhood is covenant controlled. If you are in the Commercial Districts, compliance with the Old World Bavarian Alpine Theme remains in effect.
