I'd like to put up a fence, 100% of it on my property. I live in the city. Does the city require that I get the neighbors signature to put that up? I don't think I'd have a problem though.

I live in the city also, near the airport.
I don't believe you need a signature from your neighbors but when I checked a few years ago, you are allowed an open fence up to 3-4 ft high from the front wall of your house to the sidewalk. Anything higher, some "special permit" was required. It may have changed since then.

Thanks. Is a permit required to put up a smaller 3-4ft fence?

Yes, because you are adding a permanent structure to your property. If you don't, they will make you tear it down.

Check with the city first, then you won't end up with issues later. Make certain you call for a stakeout so you don't poke a hole in your gas line, it's free.
