[ARCHIVED] 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 September 1.
