At Wednesday's meeting, the council expanded its definition of an "arcade device" — which is used to view adult content — to include an "anthropomorphic device," or one with human characteristics.
The city bars sexually oriented businesses, which include "adult arcades," from operating within 1,500 feet of churches, schools, day cares, parks and residential neighborhoods. KinkySdollS' proposed location is located a few hundred feet from the city-owned Anderson Park.
The council also prohibited customers from using arcade devices on company premises, though it still allows companies to sell them.
Mayor Sylvester Turner said the amendments are intended to update "loopholes to make the ordinance more current," specifically in dealing with changing technology. -Chron
