11.12.120: TARGETED RESIDENTIAL PICKETING PROHIBITED:linklink


A. Purpose: The protection of the home is of the highest importance. The public health and welfare and the good order of the community require that citizens enjoy in their homes and neighborhoods a feeling of well being, tranquility, and privacy, and enjoy freedom from being a captive audience to unwanted speech in their homes. The practice of targeted picketing in residential areas causes emotional disturbance and distress to residents, and has the potential to incite breaches of the peace. Full opportunity exists for individuals to exercise their rights of free speech without resorting to targeted residential picketing. The provisions of this section are enacted for the purpose of protecting the significant public interests stated above and not to suppress free speech rights or any particular viewpoint.


B. Definitions:

PICKETING: The stationing or posting of one or more persons to apprise the public, vocally or by standing or marching with signs, banners, sound amplification devices, or other means, of an opinion or a message.

RESIDENCE: Any single-family, duplex, or multi-family dwelling that is not used as a targeted occupant's sole place of business or as a place of public meeting.

TARGETED RESIDENTIAL PICKETING: Picketing that: 1) is specifically directed or focused toward a residence, or one or more occupants of a residence, and 2) takes place within one hundred feet (100') of the property line of that residence.


C. Prohibition: It shall be unlawful for any person, acting alone or in concert with others, to engage in targeted residential picketing in Salt Lake City.


D. Penalty For Violations: Any violation of this section is a class B misdemeanor. (Ord. 51-07 § 1, 2007)
