The purpose and intent of this section are to regulate the location of, but not to exclude, adult businesses in the Village by preventing the concentration of such uses in close proximity to each other and to minimize the negative impacts of their operation by separating such uses from residential, office/commercial and other areas of public congregation. This regulation is done with the understanding that the Village recognizes that there are some uses which, because of their very nature, have serious objectionable operational characteristics, particularly if several of them are concentrated under circumstances having a deleterious effect upon adjacent residential, office and commercial areas. The Village recognizes that the regulation of such uses is necessary to ensure that adverse effects will not contribute to the blighting or downgrading of surrounding residential neighborhoods, nonresidential areas or other places of public congregation.
