FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Flowery Branch City Council has repealed its adult business ordinance and passed a new adult business ordinance restricting them.

Flowery Branch Mayor Diane Hirling said no adult businesses have made new requests to move into the city limits, but the ordinance was passed in preparation for future requests.

The new adult business ordinance brought the city's adult entertainment rules in line with a 2006 zoning ordinance passed that detailed where specific businesses are allowed to operate within the city, according to Hirling.

The new ordinance establishes operating hours for adult businesses of 8 a.m.-midnight and prohibits the serving of alcoholic beverages. Adult businesses cannot operate within 1,000 feet of any place of worship, school building, college campus, religious institution, any governmental building including public parks, hospitals, libraries and children’s day care centers, or another adult entertainment venue.

"It’s not that we’re trying to keep them out," Hirling said. "We’re just keeping them away from schools and churches."

The new adult business ordinance continues the restriction that adult business establishments can only operate in areas zoned manufacture industrial.
