We’ve got pinwheels, plants, park concerts and more this month!
April is child abuse prevention month, and as part of our commitment to the safety of children, the Town of Leland and Leland Police Department are once again participating in the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign by planting a pinwheel garden in front of Town Hall. Let’s do what we can to make sure all of our children feel safe and secure.
We're excited to announce our newly redesigned website, which now gives citizens an easy way to find the most current news, learn about upcoming events and receive Town services. Take a look at www.TownofLeland.com.
Leland growth continues with a new road realignment project on Northgate Drive, a Panera Bread opening last week, and more announcements on the way.
What would you like to see in our parks and open spaces? Help us shape the future of Leland parks and open spaces by completing this online survey before April 9.
Our concerts in the park are starting up, and the award-winning concert series at the Leland Cultural Arts Center continues with some great performances scheduled. Don’t miss the Plant Giveaway on April 21 to get your gardens started.
I look forward to seeing all of you out and about, enjoying what Leland has to offer this April!

Q: Do I need a permit to put up a fence? A: The Town of Leland does not require a permit to erect a fence on property you own; however, there are guidelines in the Town Ordinance for how the fence must be built.
- Your fence can’t impede the line of sight for folks turning a corner (sight line must be 70'x30')
- Your fence can't be more than 8’ high in the back of your home, or 4’ high in the front
- The "finished side" of the fence must face out (towards the street, neighboring property, etc.)
Fences made of concertina wire, barbed wire, metal spikes, broken glass, etc. are forbidden. Electric fences are only permitted to enclose livestock and must be 110-20-Volt A.C. low impedance fencer.
The requirements for retaining walls are different, with most requiring a building permit to ensure safety.
