(August 5, 2016) The City of Frisco is reviewing the Solicitation Ordinance, in light of recent court cases. During this review, the City is temporarily suspending the requirement of individuals soliciting funds or distributing any commercial handbills to obtain a permit issued by the City of Frisco. However, an individual is still required to have the following:
- A copy of the valid state sales tax certificate, if applicable.
- A valid driver’s license or other valid, official photo identification.
All other portions of the City of Frisco Solicitation City Ordinance remain in effect. Please remember that an individual may not solicit funds or distribute commercial or noncommercial handbills at a place of residence during the following hours unless invited to do so by the occupant or owner of the residence:
- Monday – Friday: Before 9:00 a.m. and after the earlier of dusk or 9:00 p.m.
- Saturday and Sunday: Before 10:00 a.m. and after the earlier of dusk or 9:00 p.m.
For purposes of this section, dusk means thirty (30) minutes after sunset.
You can obtain the “No Soliciting” sign (pictured) from the Frisco Police Department for $10 each between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. Proceeds benefit the Frisco Police Volunteers Association.
A resident may use their own “No Soliciting” sign if it meets the following requirements:
“The sign shall be exhibited in a conspicuous place upon or near the main entrance to the premises (including but not limited to entrances to: an apartment unit, building or complex; a single- or multi-family residential structure; private sidewalks; a development with private streets; or areas maintained by a property owner’s association) a weatherproof card, not less than three inches by four inches in size bearing the words, “no advertisements”, “no solicitation”, or “no handbills”, to indicate that the occupants of such premises do not desire to be molested or to have their right of privacy disturbed, or to have a handbill of any type left upon the premises. The letters on such cards shall be not less than two-thirds (2/3) of an inch in height.”
