§ 111.25  LOCATION OF SEXUALLY ORIENTED BUSINESSES.
   (A)   A person commits an offense if he or she operates or causes to be operated a sexually oriented business within 1,000 feet of:
      (1)   A church;
      (2)   A school;
      (3)   A boundary of a residential district as defined in this chapter;
      (4)   A public park adjacent to a residential district as defined in this chapter; or
      (5)   The property line of a lot devoted to residential use as defined in this chapter.
   (B)   A person commits an offense if he or she causes or permits the operation, establishment, substantial enlargement or transfer of ownership or control of a sexually oriented business located within 500 feet of another sexually oriented business.
   (C)   A person commits an offense if he or she causes or permits the operation, establishment or maintenance of more than one sexually oriented business in the same building, structure or portion thereof, or the increase of floor area of any sexually oriented business in any building, structure or portion thereof containing another sexually oriented business.
   (D)   For the purposes of division (A) above, measurement shall be made in a straight line, without regard to intervening structures or objects, from the nearest portion of the building or structure used as part of the premises where a sexually oriented business is conducted, to the nearest property line of the premises of a church or school, or to the nearest boundary of an affected public park, residential district or residential lot.
   (E)   For purposes of division (B) above, the distance between any two sexually oriented businesses shall be measured in a straight line, without regard to intervening structures or objects, from the closest exterior wall of the structure in which each business is located.
   (F)   (1)   Any sexually oriented business lawfully operating on the effective date of this chapter, that is in violation of divisions (A), (B) or (C) above shall be deemed a nonconforming use.
      (2)   The nonconforming use will be permitted to continue for a period not to exceed six months, unless sooner terminated for any reason or voluntarily discontinued for a period of 30 days or more.
      (3)   The nonconforming uses shall not be increased, enlarged, extended or altered except that the use may be changed to a conforming use.
      (4)   If two or more sexually oriented businesses are within 500 feet of one another and otherwise in a permissible location, the sexually oriented business which was first established and continually operating at a particular location is the conforming use and the later-established business(es) is nonconforming.
      (5)   All uses currently existing which are in violation of Ord. 1122 by virtue of the fact that they were not in existence on January 3, 1977, are hereby declared illegal.
   (G)   A sexually oriented business lawfully operating as a conforming use is not rendered a nonconforming use by the location, subsequent to the grant or renewal of the sexually oriented business license, of a church, school, public park, residential district or residential lot within 1,000 feet of the sexually oriented business. This provision applies only to the renewal of a valid license, and does not apply when an application for a license is submitted after a license has expired or has been revoked.
