Story so far
Previously: Councilman Alex Wan proposed legislation earlier this year that would phase out all businesses along two sections of Cheshire Bridge Road that had been grandfathered in under a 2005 re-zoning project. Those businesses included adult entertainment clubs and shops, car washes, body shops and some restaurants. The original legislation gave the businesses two years to relocate, but was later amended to five years and to only include adult entertainment establishments.
The latest: The zoning committee approved the legislation Wednesday on a 3-2 vote with one abstention. Keisha Lance Bottoms and Carla Smith joined Wan in favoring the measure. Howard Shook and Ivory Lee Young, Jr. voted against it, and Joyce Sheperd abstained.
What’s next: The full council is expected to take up the legislation at its Monday meeting.
