“Murfreesboro may alter adult business rules”
By Turner Hutchens, The Tennessean – October 19, 2007
City attorneys have been working on possible revisions to laws regulating where sexually oriented businesses may locate, Assistant City Attorney David Ives told the Murfreesboro Planning Commission this week.
City Council would have to approve any rule changes. Murfreesboro first adopted a sexually oriented business zoning law in 1993, restricting such sites to areas zoned for heavy industrial uses.
Last year, after a law similar to Murfreesboro’s was struck down by the Tennessee Supreme Court, the council amended the law, defining adult businesses as those in which 20 percent of the stock or revenue consists of sexually oriented items, or which contain more than 200 sexually oriented media items.
