Reno Considering Kicking Strip Clubs Out Of Downtown
The Reno City Council is considering kicking the strip clubs out of downtown Reno today.
The council will decide in their meeting whether to pursue new ordinances that will force existing sex shops and strip clubs into the industrial areas of town.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the ordinances have been discussed for more than a year and have generated heated debate among strip club owners who have promised lawsuits should the ordinances go through.
Other business groups say it would set a dangerous precedent for the government to be able to boot the businesses they don’t necessarily like.
Six of the city’s seven adult entertainment businesses are improperly zoned.
