New Adult Establishments now required to move back one mile

Posted:

The Mercer County Commissioners held their third and final reading yesterday for the Exotic Entertainment ordinance.

The reading happened during the Commissioners regular Tuesday morning session.

New Adult Entertainment Establishments are now required to increase their location in relation to specific businesses from 2,000 feet to 5,280 feet.

This means the establishments must be located exactly one mile from any locations that children and families frequently visit, including churches, public parks and schools.

 County Commissioner Bill Archer says the vote to amend the ordinance was unanimous.
