Augusta BOS asked to pass adult zoning ordinances

Three members of the community addressed the Augusta County Board of Supervisors Wednesday night to ask that they pass zoning ordinances to restrict the location of adult businesses.

Bev Cundiff commented on the possiblity of property values declining if adult businesses located near them. Jeff Jordan urged the board to be preemptive to avoid the same situation that occurred in Staunton. John Ihrig also urged passage of ordinances.

On Tuesday night the Planning Commission passed the proposed ordinances back to the Board and recommended passage. The Board of Supervisors is slated to address the issue at their February 25th work session.
