No person shall cause or permit the operation, establishment or maintenance of more than one sexually oriented business in the same building, structure or portion thereof, or increase the floor area of any sexually oriented business in any building, structure or portion thereof, that contains another sexually oriented business.
   (d)   For the purposes of division (a) of this section, measurement shall be made in a straight line, without regard to intervening structures or objects, from the farthest portion of the building or structure used as a part of the premises where a sexually oriented business is conducted, to the nearest property line of the premises of a church, synagogue, mosque, temple or building which is used primarily for religious worship and related religious activities or public or private elementary or secondary school, or to the nearest boundary of an affected public park, residential district or residential lot.
   (e)   For the purposes of division (c) of this section, 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)   Any sexually oriented business lawfully operating on the effective date of this chapter that is in violation of division (a), (b), (c) or (d) of this section shall be deemed a nonconforming use.  The nonconforming use will be permitted to continue for a period not to exceed three years, unless sooner terminated for any reason or voluntarily discontinued for a period of 30 days or more. Such nonconforming use shall not be increased, enlarged, extended or altered, except that the use may be changed to a conforming use. If two or more sexually oriented businesses are within 1,000 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 shall be deemed the conforming use and the later-established business or businesses shall be deemed nonconforming.

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of a valid license and does not apply when an application for a license is submitted after a license has expired or has been revoked.
