Fences and Graffiti



  •  A fence permit is required when building eight or more linear feet of fencing
  •  A permit is also required when replacing any existing fence

To obtain a fence permit, contact the City of Lakewood’s Permit Counter at 303-987-7500, or call the Planner of the Day at 303-987-7571 to discuss requirements.



Research shows that removal of graffiti within 24 to 48 hours is the most effective way to discourage future vandalism. Prompt removal sends the message that graffiti will not be tolerated. Lakewood requires graffiti to be removed within five days.

The most valuable tool in preventing graffiti is immediate reporting. If you see any in-progress graffiti dial 911, and DO NOT attempt to intervene or contact the suspects.

You can report graffiti by using the form to the right, or call the Code Enforcement at 303-987-7566.
