New View (Acton MA) has no fence policy, but also (at this point) has no fences. We are on a complex sloped site, and each household has some exclusive use areas in front and back, but some of our pedestrain traffic flow would get very cramped if lots of households had fences. We do have a generic policy of (roughly) "Notify everyone if you are planning to make an external change, so neighbors or committees can work it out with you if they have concerns". We have two 'invisible' fences around houses to keep in dogs: the kind that train a dog to expect a jolt if they step over a buried wire. I agree that people have learned to respect the land around people's houses as semi-private zones, but we are still refining our understanding: just last weekend I had a good if incomplete conversation about how they experince me and others passing through a backyard area they share with some neighbors. ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com
