Valdosta updates Adult Entertainment Ordinance

September 5, 2006

Valdosta - As the City of Valdosta continues to grow, city council must update it's laws and ordinances accordingly.

Tonight, they will take a look at their adult entertainment ordinance.

The city's current ordinance concerning adult entertainment establishment was outdated so the city has drafted a new one.  They say the new ordinance has built in certain protections and controls regarding these establishments but still protects all constitutional rights.

Valdosta officials say much research went into creating this new ordinance.  "We've closely modeled our ordinances over one's we've found in other similar sie cities like Marietta and Savannah that not only have been held up as good ordinances but have been challenged legally and up held," said City Manager Larry Hanson.

Hanson says they have not had any requests for new businesses but the ordinance is preparing for any requests that may be received in the future.
