Don’t even knock; registry allows residents to opt out of door-to-door solicitation

Under a new Township ordinance, peddlers, vendors, and those canvasing neighborhoods to collect money can be barred from soliciting at certain addresses if the homeowner makes that preference a matter of record. At its July 27 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors approved the creation of a year-to-year Do Not Knock registry for residents as an amendment to current provisions of the Township’s Code of Ordinances. The revision also extends by an hour – from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM – the times during which door-to-door solicitation may be conducted. A Township-issued license is required for commercial solicitation, and anyone who solicits door-to-door will be required to wear an identification badge issued by the police department. Terms of the ordinance revisions take effect October 1.


ONLINE REGISTRATION BEGINS OCTOBER 1, 2017. Residents without internet access will have the ability to manually register through Customer Service or the Police Department.
