The following FYI was posted on the Stone Oak area NextDoor website on July 26, 2018 (note: our Springs HOA CCRs require our wood privacy fences to be 6' in height):



Code Enforcement Supervisor David Simpson,

Building Permits

Did you know that a fence may not be constructed, repaired, or expanded within the city limits without first obtaining a building permit for such work. (Exception: minor repairs to fences not over six (6) feet high and replacement of up to twenty-five (25) percent of the overall contiguous minor repair.) If you need assistance on whether or not you need a building permit or to obtain information about building permits you can do one of the following: - visit us online at - stop by the One Stop Center at 1901 S. Alamo - call 210-207-1111 for more information
