City of North Ridgeville

Door-to-Door Solicitors

Chapter 854 of the North Ridgeville Codified Ordinance “Peddlers, Canvassers and Solicitors” defines this as any person who sells or offers for sale within the City any goods or chattels of any kind or description by going from house to house or from place to place through the streets of the City, taking such goods or chattels with him or her, or any person who sells such goods or chattels by subscription or by taking orders for future delivery of the same. This definition shall not apply to any minor under the age of eighteen years.

No solicitor who intends to go in or upon private property or a private residence for any commercial purpose shall do so without first registering in the Office of the Mayor and obtaining a solicitation permit. This permit is valid for one year from the date issued. Each solicitor at all times shall carry with him/her the permit to be shown when requested by the resident. If a solicitor is unable to produce a solicitation permit issued by the Mayor’s Office, please contact the North Ridgeville Police Department immediately at (440) 327-2191 to report the incident. All door-to-door activity, of any nature, shall be restricted to the hours of 10 AM to 8 PM on Monday through Saturday and Noon to 5 PM on Sunday.

A “no solicitation or canvassing” sign posted in a visible and prominent location at a residence shall be sufficient to notify any unwanted peddlers, canvassers or solicitors that the permittee may not come upon the premises or if upon the premises the solicitor or canvasser shall leave immediately upon becoming aware of the sign or being made aware of the sign. If a solicitor ignores the sign and proceeds to conduct business in such a manner as to constitute a trespass upon private property or fraud, misrepresentation or false statements made in the course of conducting the activity, please report this to the Administrative Offices at (440) 353-0819. Permits may be revoked for any violation of the ordinance. 
There are free “No Soliciting” window decals available at City Hall for residents that would like to prevent unwanted solicitors. You can find the ordinance in its entirety and an up-to-date list of registered solicitors to the right of your screen.
