Solicitations in Muirfield

The Association office has received a number of calls regarding door to door solicitors in Muirfield. Muirfield Association does not have a policy regarding solicitations because the City of Dublin has a very specific one. The City of Dublin Planning Department has provided the following information regarding solicitors:

To solicit door to door in the City of Dublin, a permit is required.

If anyone comes to a resident's door and they do not have a badge, the resident should call the non-emergency police department number at 614-889-1112.

If an approved solicitor is rude, pushy, or otherwise a nuisance, call Greg Jones at 614-410-4647.

If a resident invites a solicitor to come to their property, no solicitor’s permit is required.

No permit is required to place flyers or other marketing materials in the wooden mail slot area located under the mailbox. (The USPS does not permit anything to be put into the mailbox itself other than mail.) However, a solicitor's permit is required to take those same materials onto the property, such as putting flyers on doors or porches.

Additionally, from the City’s webpage:

If you are approached by a solicitor:

City of Dublin “No Peddlers or Solicitors” green or clear door clings are available. Residents can pick up clings at 5800 Shier Rings Road. Residents are permitted to display these clings or other “No Soliciting” signs on their front doors. (Signs are not permitted in the yard or on mailboxes). Solicitors with a valid permit are required to obey “No Soliciting” clings.

As a reminder, even if a solicitor has a permit, all changes to the exterior of the property must be approved by the Muirfield Design Control Committee before any work begins. If a contractor or company states that their products or services have been approved by Muirfield, this is not true. Nothing is pre-approved. Everything must be reviewed and approved in writing by the Design Control Committee.

For more information from the City of Dublin regarding soliciting, read "No Peddlers/Solicitors" Policy.

Pathway Use

Muirfield has over 29 miles of paved pathways that wind through beautiful areas of woods and open areas.

All residents are welcome and encouraged to take advantage of the pathways! Walkers, runners, children, pets, cyclists, and rollerbladers are all welcome in addition to strollers, wheelchairs, or persons using medical mobility aids. Bicycles and other self-powered devices are welcome, but motorized, electric, or battery driven vehicles of any type (with the exception of medical devices) are not permitted. Per Dublin city code, all pets must either be leased or under the direct control of the owner at all times and owners are responsible for cleaning up after pets.

For the safety and comfort of all users, please use common courtesy and be on the alert for others. Slower walkers, children, people with strollers and those using medical devices may not have time to respond quickly enough to those traveling faster than they are. If you are traveling faster than other users, please announce yourself when passing someone. This could prevent a collision that may injure both parties. Your fellow Muirfield pathway users will appreciate it!

Need to find your way? There are maps of the pathways available here.
