POTH -- In its efforts to continue its proactive approach toward smart growth, the Poth Planning and Zoning Commission has proposed amending the city’s planning and zoning ordinance to address sexually oriented businesses. The board, at its April 10 meeting, unanimously approved recommending the amendment to the Poth City Council, which was set to address the issue at its April 16 meeting.

The amendment applies only to those wishing to operate such sexually oriented businesses as arcades, bookstores, video stores, cabarets, and more. If approved, the city would establish administrative policies related to permits and inspections. Such businesses would be allowed to operate within Poth’s general business zoning district, provided the proposed location is not within 1,000 feet of:

•A church.

•A school.

•A child-care facility.

•A property line of a lot devoted to residential use.

•A public park.

•A building or structure where alcoholic beverages are sold.

•Another sexually oriented business.

The commission began its meeting with a brief public hearing on the issue. While Mayor Travis Pruski was the only resident to attend, he said numerous citizens have told him they support these proposed rules and he was unaware of any opposition. Within the past three months, Pruski said, Poth has had three inquiries about its policies related to sexually oriented businesses. Each person who called City Hall was informed that the city was working to create such rules, the mayor said.

Pruski said Carrizo Springs and Cotulla were unable to adopt regulations ahead of the opening of gentleman’s clubs, which aim to cater to oil and natural gas workers in those areas. He said Cotulla already has three clubs.

Business that was on the meeting’s official agenda took approximately 10 minutes to complete. The commission meandered off the agenda to discuss the need to amend other parts of the zoning ordinance. In December, the city council adopted several amendments to the ordinance, which was first adopted in 1988. But board member Scott Lyssy thought the ordinance could use some clarification related to modular buildings.

The commission reached a consensus that it would recommend that the city council clarify this part of the ordinance and that modular buildings be allowed only in areas zoned “R-4,” which allows prefabricated or manufactured buildings measuring less than 910 square feet.

Another consensus was reached on asking the council to allow agribusinesses to be exempt from the rules in the ordinance calling for businesses to have asphalt driveways and parking lots.

In attendance: Poth Planning and Zoning Commission members Brad Koether, Scott Lyssy, LeAnn Hosek, and Peter Moczygemba and Poth Mayor Travis Pruski.

Dear Poth City Council, You can browse through the City of St. Hedwig's (2009 Zoning Ordinance) pages 33-39 for ideas! They must have gone though great consideration (and taxpayer money) because Sexually Oriented Business ... More ›
