(A)   It is recognized that there are some uses which, because of their very nature, are recognized as having serious objectionable operational characteristics, particularly when several of them are concentrated under certain circumstances, thereby having a deleterious effect upon adjacent areas.
   (B)   Special regulation of these upon adjacent areas is necessary to ensure that these adverse effects will not contribute to the blighting or downgrading of the surrounding neighborhood.
   (C)   For the purpose of promoting the health, safety, morals, and general welfare of the citizens of the town, this chapter is adopted by the Board of Aldermen to regulate video gaming machines.
