Location of Adult Entertainment Uses – Background Material (pdf)
Bruce Freeland, Planning Director, June 1987
The purpose of this study is to provide an information base on adult entertainment uses to aid the Planning Commission in their deliberations on the need to regulate the location of adult entertainment uses. Part I of this study, which is composed of background information, will be presented to the Planning Commission prior to their September 16th public meeting. At this public meeting, the public will provide their comments on the need and type of regulations that may be adopted for adult entertainment uses. At a subsequent Planning Commission meeting, staff will present Part II of the study, which will include an analysis and recommendation as to the need for regulation and form that any necessary regulation should take.
Adult Use Study: “The evidence gathered since the survey clearly shows a correlation between deterioration of business neighborhoods and the presence of adult uses.”
