    It being Sunday I can't call anyone and can't locate info on MO website. In general, do you include a drawing of a fence on top of your wall if it is high enough to warrant a fence. In other words can the plans and permit be rejected if a fence isn't drawn in ? I don't exactly know what type fence at this point and am not sure I need to include it just to get the wall built. I realize it's possible to get sited if a fence is never installed but do I need it drawn in now?

    I dunno. no fence = no final inspection. no final inspection = no more permits issued for that property as long as there is a permit still open.

    do you draw in the fence on your plans when you know it requires a fence?

    the thing is i can draw the fence but then if i change the fence type ( because we dont know what we will be using) i will have to re submitt a set of plans when the inspector see's a different fence

    I don't think I've ever drawn in the barrier fence. Most of the time the field inspector just wants to see something that'll stand up to throwing a hip into it. But that's Virginia, your locale may differ. In DC you'd probably have to get a DNA sample from the guy building the barrier fence.
