Title
Install 4 foot tall fencing on the front and side/rear yard of a single-family dwelling (B)

Petition HP-21-61. Michael Walker & Christina Kessler, owners. Certificate of Appropriateness for the installation of fencing made of a non-traditional material within a highly visible side and rear yard of a single-family dwelling. Located at 636 NE 7th Street. This building is a contributing structure to the Northeast Residential Historic District.

Project Description

The applicant is proposing to replace the chain link fence on the east and north sides with a 4 foot high fence, horizontally oriented with composite wood planks. The fencing proposed on the north side of the property will be shifted approximately 11 feet north from where the existing chain link fence is located towards NE 7th Avenue to allow the enclosure of the back door within the fenced back yard.

The applicants indicate that there will not be more than 50 feet of visible fence line from the street. The proposed fence will be a Trex Horizon Horizontal fence, a composite wood fence with the color being Saddle.

The property facing NE 7th Street is considered the front of the property and the front yard. The location of the proposed 4 foot tall fence on this side of the property is largely in compliance with the City of Gainesville’s Historic Preservation Rehabilitation and Design Guidelines for fencing because it will be no greater than 4 feet tall and it is setback a distance from 63 feet to 66.5 feet from NE 7th Street. This distance helps to mitigate the fact that the proposed fence is mostly closed (i.e. 50% or more opaque) but the fence does not extend beyond the front wall of the house.

The location of the proposed 4 foot tall fence in the side yard of the property (the north side) is generally in compliance w...
