§ 154.01  PURPOSE.
   It is the intent of this chapter to prevent community-wide adverse economic impacts, increased crime, decreased property values, and the deterioration of neighborhoods, 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, churches, and residentially zoned districts or uses. 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 an increase in crime, and in addition to the effects described above, can cause other businesses and residents to move elsewhere. It is, therefore, the purpose of this chapter to establish reasonable and uniform regulations to prevent the concentration of adult entertainment businesses or their close proximity to incompatible uses, while permitting the location of adult businesses in certain areas.
