Yes, the City of Gainesville’s Municipal Code of Ordinances does have a section on fences and walls. I’ve included a link below to the main page for the current ordinances, then you will need to use the navigation pane on the left hand side to go to Part II (Code of Ordinances), Chapter 13 (Housing and Commercial Building Codes), Article I (In General), Division 1 (General Requirements for Fences and Walls).


This section will include information on Definitions, Construction and Maintenance, Prohibited Fences, Nonconformities, and Administration and Enforcement. If you have additional questions on fences, please feel free to contact the City of Gainesville's Building Department at (352)334-5050 or Code Enforcement Division at (352)334-5030.
