New fencing to be considered
Posted on March 18, 2020 by Admin
In addition to voting on whether to allow split-rail fences in Rodgers Forge, the RFCA will also vote at its April meeting on whether to add chain link fences to its list of approved fencing. In all cases, front-yard fences will still be prohibited. If you would like to share your thoughts, please email board@rodgersforge.org.

I am not in favor of chain link fences unless in combination with wood split rail to keep rabbits out of gardens similar to this photo and should be black in color. Please do not approve silver-colored galvanized fencing. Wood alley fences make alleys feel more warm and less industrial and sets RF apart.

I strongly disapprove of chain link fences in Rodgers Forge. They would make our allies look wrong and unneighborly.

Do not like chain link fences. split rail does not really go with the architecture of this community even though there are a few around.

Wait. Chain link is not approved? That's the most popular fence type in the neighborhood. What are you guys talking about?

Seriously, I suggest a quick survey of existing fencing in RF before making any new rules. At this point the divergence between the rules and the reality seems so wide, it's totally confusing. I understand we won't have 100% compliance, but I think we are around 20% compliance if that.

I agree with Kimberely's comments

I support the recommendation to survey what we have now. As a frequent alley walker with my dog I see lots of variations. And as a three decade owner with a chainlink back fence I'm pretty sure it and many others like it were put in when house was new.
