No Strip Club On Lecount Place

The City has successfully fought an effort to open a so-called “gentlemen’s club” on Lecount Place, across from New Roc City. For almost ten years, the City’s zoning code has prohibited adult entertainment in proximity to residential areas, schools, houses of worships, urban renewal areas, and other protected classifications. These regulations cover the bulk of our downtown area. The owners of the former Marty and Lenny’s challenged the City’s law in federal court, claiming that it was too restrictive. Fortunately, the federal court ruled for the City and prevented a strip club from opening at a wholly inappropriate location.
