Problems continue with those vendors knocking on the door at dinner to sell doors, windows, vinyl siding, etc. They are persistent and annoying. When you call the police and ask for assistance they reply with “we can’t do anything because you do not have a “No Solicitation” sign on your door.
The Board of Directors modified the ARB guideline to allow a “No Solicitation Sign no greater than 10”w x 4”h and / or a small security sign furnished by the security company, usually 6”inch diameter or octagon shape.
