City adopts new rules for adult businesses

first_img“We have kind of been flying under the radar,” Olivas said. “By law we can’t prohibit adult businesses because they are considered to be protected under First Amendment rights. We are just trying to make sure if they are placed in the city they are in certain industrial zones.” (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2109160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “I think it’s just a matter of time before one of these businesses will make an application, which is why it’s important to have this ordinance in place,” Olivas said. “As we become a more redeveloped city and become a more prominent city in the area, there will be businesses that will be attracted to us.” Olivas said the ordinance bars customers from getting within six feet of a performer and bans patrons from tipping performers directly. It also prohibits adult-oriented business from locating within 1,000 feet of any residence, religious institution, day-care facility or school. Roger Diamond, an attorney who specializes in constitutional law and often represents strip clubs, said it is not unusual for cities to change their regulations when they feel threatened by a prospective business. “I am against councils regulating something when no one is asking for regulation. It’s possible for cities to just decide to change their codes for no reason, but I don’t see that too often,” Diamond said. “I would prefer councils focus on things like potholes, sewage problems, air pollution and smog.” Chief Executive Officer Vijay Singhal said he knows of no adult businesses that have expressed interest in coming to Baldwin Park. BALDWIN PARK – The City Council has adopted strict rules for the operation of strip clubs and other adult-oriented businesses. The action comes just weeks before the city’s moratorium on adult-oriented businesses expires. Councilman David Olivas said the new rules will give city officials more control over where an adult-oriented business can be located in Baldwin Park. Additionally, the rules would limit any interaction between customers and strip-club performers. last_img read more
