The Legal Questions on the Adult Ordinance

The Planning and Zoning meeting is set for Tuesday, May 29, at 7:30 PM. The agenda is not yet published but the detail can be found here. Last week, the Miami Herald published a notice that there would be a discussion of the Ordinance governing Adult Entertainment Establishments. That item was requested by the City Attorneys. 

I had a conversation with our city attorney. Since this has to do with the strip club, I wanted to know. The goal of the discussion is to ensure that our current ordinance is well understood and establish recommendations for any changes that might be required. 

This discussion is a good idea. Planning & Zoning needs to fully understand the ordinance. I and others are concerned as to why and at the meeting, there are questions that need to be discussed.

    • What is the current status of the ordinance?
      Why does it need review and revision?
      How will these revisions affect the current lawsuit brought by the Isle of Dreams strip club developer Scott Greenwald?
  • There are other questions and I hope many people are there to ask them. This is not a wholesale change to legalize the strip club. The city attorney was quite clear on that.  But we do need to know why now and what the effect will be. The agenda should be published by Friday and I will put that up as soon as I have a copy. It matters  to bethere  on Tuesday, May 29 at 7:30. Don't wait to find out later that something happened. Citizens need to be active and concerned from the beginning.
