Engineered Plans for Privacy Fence

Does anyone know if there are engineered plans online for an 8 foot wooden privacy fence that will satisfy city building inspectors? I was told the plans where needed to to receive the permit for fenceing over 6ft. And they wouldn't even tell me how to go about finding such plans saying that's not their job or responsibility.

Much depends on where you are located and what your local codes might be. I assume you are in a high wind coastal area where they now take things like this very seriously. If your inspectors are looking for "signed" engineering I doubt you will find a book or free plans that will work. If Engineering is required it will have to be done by a Professional Engineer specifically for your site and have their official stamp and signature.
