Do Not Knock Registration
The City maintains a list of residents within our corporation boundaries who have expressed a desire not to be visited by any peddler or solicitor.
The Do Not Knock Registry does not apply to any person going door to door that you personally invite onto your property.
Ordinance 58-09 does not require certain groups to either register or get a license as they are only engaged in distributing their message or are a religious or charitable organization which employs the use of solicitors or peddlers under the age of 16, exclusively. The registry does not keep those groups or individuals from knocking on your door.
If a solicitor does knock on your door and your address is on the list, please call 614-837-7493 if you wish to report the violation.
City of Canal Winchester office staff will verify addresses. If your address is outside the Canal Winchester corporation boundaries (i.e. in an unincorporated area or in another municipality), we will be unable to add your address to the registry.
You are prohibited from knocking on the doors of any address that is located on the City’s Do Not Knock Registry. A current list of the Registry is available by request. Please call 614-837-7493.
