Adult entertainment venues could see tighter regulations

via Carolina Live:

Robert Wilfong with the Horry County Planning Commission says the problem with current laws that regulate adult entertainment venues in the county is that they're so outdated, they're practically unenforceable.

But that could change if a new ordinance discussed at the Horry County Planning Commission workshop Thursday is passed.

As the ordinance reads, adult entertainment venues should be separated by at least 1,500 feet from "sensitive land" like churches, parks, and schools. This is to protect the public from any adverse affects these venues may cause, such as public indecency, obscenity and drug trafficking
