January 22, 2014 the Dallas City Council passed an ordinance requiring anyone soliciting within the city limits of Dallas to register with and obtain a solicitor’s permit from the City of Dallas. The only exceptions to this ordinance would be charitable and non-profit organizations. If you would like to prohibit solicitation at your home please refer to Section 42-14(a) of the Dallas City Code which states:SEC. 42-14. EXHIBITING SIGNS PROHIBITING HOME SOLICITORS.(a) Any person desiring to prohibit home solicitations on the person’s residential premises shall exhibit in a conspicuous place upon or near the front or main entrance to the residential premises a weatherproof sign containing the words, “NO SOLICITORS OR HANDBILLS,” or any similar notice indicating that the occupants of the premises do not desire to be bothered, have their right of privacy disturbed, or have commercial printed matter left upon the premises.Please be aware that in accordance to this City Ordinance EACH resident must place this sign on their residence to prohibit home solicitations. Posting general no solicitation signs in a neighborhood or having a neighborhood policy to prohibit solicitations is not in accordance to the Dallas City Code and cannot be enforced.
