Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Your right is to file a written appeal to the board asking for them to grant a waiver or permission for the fence and provide proof that the fence complies with the HOA guidelines. If the board refuses then the next step is you have a right to appeal their denial based on it being arbitrary and capricious, since your fence complies with the HOA specifications and thus an abuse of discretion. Unfortunately, you have to follow the appeal process to the board first and then would have to go to court to sue to get the court to order the board to comply with their bylaws.
