Soliciting, Canvassing, or Peddling in Lighthouse Point
As a resident of Lighthouse Point, you may not be aware of the City’s solicitation laws. Anyone who visits residential properties to sell goods, wares, or merchandise must contact the City Clerk's Office as well as the Police Department for permission prior to solicitation. A permit application must be submitted to the City and approved by both the City Clerk and Police Chief.
As a resident, you may request to be placed on a “No Solicitors” List if you do not want solicitors visiting your residence. All permitted solicitors are given a copy of the "No Solicitors" List.
Chapter 62 of the City Code of Ordinances regulates soliciting and states that no person shall solicit except between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Soliciting is not permitted on Sundays and holidays.
If you have any questions as to the status of any solicitor, you may call the Police Department at 954-942-8080, or the City Clerk’s Office at 954-943-6500.
A “No Solicitation” Form is available below. The completed form may be dropped off at the City Clerk's Office. Your address will be added to the "No Solicitation" List, which is updated on the City website regularly.
Please note: Religious or political groups that are not selling goods or merchandise, or asking for money, are not regulated by Chapter 62 of the City of Lighthouse Point Code of Ordinances. They do not have to abide by the "No Solicitors" List nor the hours of solicitation, nor do they have to register with the City.
