Our current zoning ordinance allows sexually oriented businesses as a special use in one of our commercial zoning districts. This particular district basically surrounds the intersection of two state highways. A member of City Council wants the Planning Commission to explore changing our ordinance to allow them as special uses in the Industrial districts, which happens to be located in the corner of the city. I think it is the 'out of sight/out of mind' idea.
I am looking for some thoughts into this. What IS the ideal zoning district? Is it better to have them virtually hidden from view? Curious to hear comments - thanks in advance!
