Maricopa County No-Fence Districts

The No-Fence District/Open Range maps are available for general information. All No-Fence districts on file in the Clerk of the Board’s Office were created prior to 1980. The Clerk of the Board, therefore, makes no representation as to the application of No-Fence District/Open Range designation within any subsequent annexation into an incorporated city or town.

The Maricopa County Clerk of the Board of Supervisors’ Office (“Clerk’s Office”) has made every reasonable effort to obtain and maintain this data as accurately as possible; however, this material may be dated, which would have an impact on its accuracy, and human or mechanical error remain a possibility. The Clerk’s Office and other Maricopa County departments assume no responsibility or liability arising from the use of this data or information. The data and maps are provided without warranty of any kind, either express or implied. This information should be used for informational use only and does not constitute a legal document for the description of these properties.
