SOLAR PANEL

If the solar panel is going on top of the roof you will need a report from an engineer saying the roof will hold the solar panel.

FENCES

If you are installing a fence under 6 feet you need a zoning application if you are installing a fence over 6 feet you need a zoning and building application.
