Containment Wire Violations

The following email sent to Sierra Canyon Owners – Provided by Joe Bower, Sierra Canyon Owner

Somersett has advised Sierra Canyon that they are going to start enforcing containment wire violations in Sierra Canyon. However, they will not start enforcing for about a month. My hope is by getting this e-mail out, anyone in violation will be able to correct it prior to Somersett enforcing it and therefore will not receive a violation letter. Please see below for the containment wire guidelines for your convenience and review:

In Section 3.7.1 General Guidelines, it says:  “Neighborhood homes at Somersett utilize split rail fencing in side and rear yards. Dark green vinyl coated 16 gauge containment wiring, with see-through opening dimensions not less than 1 inch by 1 inch or to exceed 2 inches by 4 inches, is the only approved containment wire that can be used to line two rail and/or three rail split rail fencing. Wire must be attached to the inside face (side NOT exposed to public view). Wire must cover the full height of the fence, from the ground to the top rail. Wire may not extend above the top rail. No other screen fences are allowed.

Also in Section 3.7.2 Fence Details, it says: “Having containment wire on your fencing is not required; if you wish to install it, the guidelines are as follows: Dark green, brown, or black, vinyl-coated, 12-16 gauge, containment wiring, with see-through, square/rectangular openings no less than 1” X 1”, is the only approved containment wire that can be used to line two-rail and/or three-rail split rail fencing. The wire must be attached to the inside face of the fence (side not exposed to common property). The wire must cover the full height of the fence from the ground to the top rail. Wire may not extend above the top rail. For additional screening, a second offset layer of matching containment wire may be installed up to the rail below the topmost rail (i.e. Three-rail fence may have a second offset layer up to the second rail). The second layer of wire must not extend above the rail below the topmost. Prefabricated vinyl coated “garden fencing” (larger openings leading down to smaller openings) will also be accepted, as long as the smallest opening dimension is not less than 1”X 1”. Plastic fencing, poultry netting, and any non-vinyl-coated wiring are expressly prohibited.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding regarding this matter.

Kylee Joseph, Assistant Community Manager Sierra Canyon Association.
