§ 20.44.010  PURPOSE.
   It is the intent of these regulations to prevent problems of blight and deterioration which can be brought about by the concentration of adult entertainment businesses in close proximity to each other or proximity to other incompatible uses such as schools for minors, public parks and residentially zoned districts.  The City Council finds that it has been demonstrated in various communities that the concentration of adult entertainment businesses causes an increase in the number of transients in the area, and increase in crime, and can cause other businesses and residents to move elsewhere.  It is, therefore, the purpose of these regulations to establish reasonable and uniform regulations to prevent the concentration of adult establishments or their close proximity to incompatible uses, while permitting the location of adult businesses in certain areas.
