New Construction Fence + Shed Signs
New signage, color and viewing
panel requirements are now in effect for construction fences and
sidewalk sheds. The new standards apply to fences and
sheds with permits issued on or after July 1, 2013. The
new signs improve construction site safety by providing easy
access to contractor and project information ― and these
new requirements improve the overall appearance of job sites for communities.
on compliance requirements for construction fences and sheds
permitted before July 1, exemptions for one-, two- and three-family projects, and design requirements for demolition projects and smaller lots, see Local Law 47 of 2013.
