What are the requirements for fences?

Bellevue Zoning Code, Section 9.09 (9.09.01—9.09.11), requires that all fences be maintained, repaired, or removed. Missing boards need to be replaced or the fence section removed. Section 9.09.10 states that fences are to be installed with the finished sides facing outward toward adjacent properties. Pools over 9 feet wide and 18 inches deep require a 6 foot tall privacy or chain link fence with a self-closing and self-latching gate (Section 9.09.08).
