Ridgefield considers ban on door-to-door soliciting

Ridgefield officials are considering a ban on door-to-door solicitations. Comcast has been seeking a permit, but has had no response from the town.  The Ridgefield Press reports that an attorney for the company wrote to Ridgefield officials that commercial speech is a protected activity under the First Amendment and that a municipal ordinance targeting such speech must directly advance a legitimate governmental interest and be narrowly tailored.  The town attorney is drafting a revision to the town's vending and peddling ordinance to ban door-to-door sales, but would exempt people acting “on behalf of any charitable, civic or religious organization.”
