Today’s Republican reports that several ordinances strengthening Northampton’s adult-use regulation are on Thursday’s City Council agenda. These ordinances, all approved by Northampton’s Planning Board, will regulate the signage of adult businesses, restrict businesses with porn viewing booths to Northampton’s Highway Business Zone and at least 500 feet from homes and schools, and similarly restrict all large adult businesses (over 1,000 square feet of adult material on display) to Northampton’s Highway Business Zone and at least 500 feet from homes and schools.
If approved by the City Council on Thursday, the ordinances will receive a second and final reading at the City Council’s following meeting (November 2). City Council meetings take place at 7:15pm at 212 Main Street. All concerned citizens are urged to attend. See details about City Council meetings.
