|"Do Not Solicit" Registry
As of May 13, 2010, the City has hosted a “Do Not Solicit” registry on its website. Residents who do not wish to receive commercial solicitation, noncommercial solicitation and handbills at their homes may sign up for the registry. This service is intended to benefit both the residents and the solicitors. Residents who do not wish to receive unsolicited communication and handbills can provide notice to solicitors and handbill distributors. Solicitors and handbill distributors can target their efforts and resources towards residents who are most likely to be receptive to the message.
Newport Beach Municipal Code 5.42.125 States:
"Occupants of residential properties who visibly display 'No Soliciting' signs, or signs with similar wording, may annually request to have their addresses included on a registry of residential properties whose occupants do not wish to receive unsolicited handbills or solicitation. The registry shall be maintained by the City Manager’s Office and through the City’s website, and shall be available on the City’s website to the public and all potential commercial and noncommercial solicitors.
It shall be a violation of this section for any commercial or noncommercial solicitor to solicit or distribute handbills at or to any dwelling unit that is included on the City’s 'no soliciting' registry. (Ord. 2010-6 § 10 (part), 2010)"
