The City Council does find that there exists and has existed an increasing trend toward the display of adult reading material at grocery stores, convenience stores, drugstores, and other retail outlets within the city. The adult reading material is often displayed within the open view of children of tender years and is easily accessible to them. The City Council finds that this material is adverse to the public peace, morals and good order of young children. The Council further finds that it is in the best interest of the public safety, welfare and convenience of the city to restrict the display of adult reading material and to adopt the following regulations so that adverse impacts upon young children are kept to a minimum.
