In most municipalities you can pull your own permit as Builder-owner if the value of the work is less than $2500,however, if it involves electrical,plumbing,mechanical or roofing then you will still need a subpermit from a contractor licensed in those disciplines.

Cynthia (if you're even still out there) , since you asked this question close to 2 years ago - did you ever put in the fence?

Yes you can,However make sure the fence materials and proper installation meets code. Since you are pulling a permit,an inspector still has to drive by and sign off on it.

Happy Digging.

The place to start is with your Homw Owner's Association to be clear about their guidelines on community fencing.

Good luck
