Unwanted visitors cause much frustration among homeowners. However, there are a few things we can do to protect ourselves from the doorbell’s intrusion.
Technically, “No Soliciting” signs are not allowed on any County roads, which is why there is not a sign at the entrance to CPN. Some neighborhoods have added “No Soliciting” signs to their neighborhood entry monument; however most report that these signs have had little impact on reducing solicitor traffic in their neighborhoods.
As a homeowner, you ARE allowed to put a “No Soliciting” sign on your private property. Neighbors who have done this report a reduction in the amount of salespeople at the door. (After all, who wants to go where they’re not wanted?)
Every commercial solicitor is REQUIRED to carry a valid permit issued by the County (this does not apply to school kids or non-profits.) If you ask to see a permit, and a salesperson does not have one, tell him or her that you will call the Sheriff’s office--and then do it! Once word gets out that Castle Pines North does not welcome door-to-door salespeople, their numbers should decrease.
To report a solicitor who doesn’t have a permit, or for questions about the rules, call the Douglas County Sheriff’s office at (303) 660-7505.
