§ 846-7. Fence Required  


Latest version.
  • No person shall operate or maintain a motor vehicle salvage lot within 1,000 feet of the nearest edge of the right of way of any public street or highway unless the ordinary view thereof from such street or highway is substantially obscured by a barrier of natural objects, plantings or a fence as defined in this chapter. The fence herein required shall be kept in good order and repair, and no advertisement shall be permitted thereon other than the name of the person under whose name the license to operate the motor vehicle salvage lot has been issued and the nature of the business conducted therein. In the event plantings are used to obscure the area, only those varieties of trees, bushes, shrubs or other plantings approved by the Cincinnati Park Board and listed in the office of the director of buildings and inspections shall be authorized. Such plantings shall ring the area which can be viewed from the public street or highway, to a depth of no less than five feet, in no less than two rows, in a staggered pattern, so as to provide the greatest possible concealment of the motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts sought to be obscured.

    No person shall operate or maintain a motor vehicle salvage lot located either partially or completely within the limits of the city of Cincinnati without a motor vehicle salvage license issued by the city treasurer, nor shall any person operate or maintain a motor vehicle salvage lot without the required fence.

    No fence required to be erected pursuant to the provisions of this chapter shall be constructed until a permit therefor has been obtained from the director of buildings and inspections of the city of Cincinnati, and no permit shall be issued until complete plans for the construction of the fence, including materials, have been submitted to and approved by the director. No license to operate or maintain a motor vehicle salvage lot shall be issued by the city treasurer until the fence has been completed and been given final approval by the director of buildings and inspections.
