Adult business moratorium extended

Peddlers of smut, pay-by-the-hour hotels and strip clubs will have to wait to do business in Nevada County.

The Nevada County Board of Supervisors Tuesday voted unanimously to extend a moratorium on adult businesses in the unincorporated areas of the county until next August. The supervisors originally approved the emergency ordinance in September after prospective adult business owners inquired about opening shop in Nevada County, according to Senior Planner Tyler Barrington.

Planning department staff asked for the ordinance because the county previously had no restrictions on file governing where adult businesses could open for business.

The department plans to come back to the supervisors next year with regulations regarding hours of operation, location in terms of distance from schools and churches and what type of adult businesses would be allowed in the county.
