A customer once asked what is the difference between a Residential and Commercial grade aluminum fence.  The answer is simple. It is how it holds up.   In the video below, there are two fences.  The one on the right is residential grade and the one on the left is commercial grade, and both were installed within a few months of each other.    

Pay attention to the fence on the right.  Notice the bent pickets.

Backyard privacy fences in Baldwin Park orLake Nona HOA, located in Orlando Florida, could soon be a thing of the past.  

      The Department of Transportation Engineer for the City of Orlando believes that fences in alleyways propose a danger to pedestrians. As a result, the standard 3' foot set back for fences will no longer be allowed.    

           Simply put, no fences within nine feet of the alley way.  Considering that the average home possesses 15' feet between the garage and the alleyway, that private back yard is now eliminated.   In fact, they are suggesting that only open Aluminum fences can be used. 

             It does not matter if your neighbor's fence is already established, or if the ARB approves based on the set Architectural Standards, or the code itself permits fences within 3 feet of the alleyway. The Transportation Department believes they have the power to override the code without a public hearing.  

              Here is how you can help.   Post a comment on this page or call the City of Orlando and ask to speak with the city engineer.   If you live within these communities, go join your other members of your HOA at RatemyHOA.org.

Attention Property Owners!!!   If you live in Baldwin Park, Lake Nona, or Lauriate Park and want a fence,  the City of Orlando Transportation Department has changed the set back rules where a fence and an alleyway are involved.     
  
             The City will no longer approve solid privacy fence or 4+2 privacy fence within 9 feet of the alleyway.   They believe an open aluminum fence is more appropriate for line of site.    This decision has far reaching complications, because the change is an opinion of the Transportation Department and not the actual adopted building code. 

            It  proposes a few interesting questions:  (1) What is an HOA suppose to do when their governing documents specifically state style, type, and location of the fence?  (2) It calls into question the individual's right of privacy and use of property.  

 Stay tune and we will keep you posted.
