The City of Cape Coral and the Cape Coral Police Department are offering complimentary “Stop! No Soliciting” door hangers.

The signs were created in response to residents who have reached out to the City and Police Department with concerns regarding unwelcome solicitors coming to their homes. The bright yellow door hangers can be recognized from the street and let solicitors know which houses to skip.

Residents can obtain a free door hanger by visiting the City Hall Information Desk or the Cape Coral Police Department’s Information Desk.

Chapter 13 of Cape Coral’s Code of Ordinances specifies the following:

  • solicitors are required to be permitted by the City
  • solicitors cannot solicit from 5:00 p.m. to 9 a.m. the following morning or any time on Sundays (except by appointment or invitation of the prospective customer)
  • solicitors must leave the property if requested
  • solicitors must obey any “No Soliciting” signs placed on any property

If a solicitor disregards a “No Soliciting” sign, refuses to leave the property, and/or solicits after hours, they can be reported to the police department’s non-emergency number, (239) 574-3223.

For emergencies or suspicious activity, call 911. To verify a solicitor’s permit, call City Hall at 311.
