Solicitors + Panhandling Banned From Kennewick Highway Intersections

In five days the City of Kennewick will forever forbid panhandling and solicitation of any kind within 250 feet of the following intersections: Highway 395 and Kennewick Avenue, Highway 395 and Clearwater Avenue, and Columbia Drive and Washington Street.

The ban was unanimously approved yesterday at the City Council meeting. Safety was the main. The justification for the ban was that at those intersections there are no safe places for cars to pull over and interact with solicitors.

According to staff, this ordinance does not impact city-approved activities or the right to picket or protest at these intersections.
