§ 123.02  PURPOSE OF REGULATIONS.
   These regulations are aimed at reducing and preventing the secondary effects of adult uses. They are not enacted to regulate the content of the activities performed at such uses. In addition, these regulations are based on the village’s substantial interest in preventing crime, protecting retail trade, maintaining property values, and generally protecting and preserving the quality of the village’s neighborhoods, commercial districts and urban life. Furthermore, it is not the purpose of these regulations to deny anyone a reasonable opportunity to open and operate adult uses within the village. The purpose of these regulations is the amelioration of adverse secondary effects of adult uses. Finally, the Illinois Supreme Court has judicially confirmed that the purpose of these regulations as hereinafter provided serves a valid governmental interest.
