Public workshop seeks input on draft adult business ordinances
The City of Reno is seeking public input on the latest draft ordinances that detail proposed changes related to the regulation of adult businesses. The latest versions of the draft ordinances can be viewed at Reno.gov.
Here’s how to learn more about the proposed changes and provide input:
- Attend the public workshop on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at Reno City Hall in the Council Chamber. During the workshop, staff will review the proposed changes to Titles 4, 5, 8, and 18 during a short presentation. Attendees will then have the opportunity to provide their input, either verbally or in writing. The workshop will be televised on Charter Channel 194 and streamed on the City of Reno YouTube channel.
- Submit your comments electronically via the adult business ordinance online comment form. The form will be available through Friday, October 5, 2018.
Business Impact Statement
The City of Reno has also opened the comment period for the Business Impact Statement (BIS) process. In addition to the workshop and online comment form, impacted business owners, trade organizations and other stakeholders are also encouraged to send any comments or supplemental information regarding the proposed amendments to Titles 4, 5, and 8 in writing to the Business License Division by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 5, 2018 at firstname.lastname@example.org. The feedback received on these three titles of Reno Municipal Code will be used to develop a BIS, which summarizes the input and analyzes the effects of the proposed changes.
Proposed changes to Title 18 (the Land Development Code) are not statutorily included as part of the BIS process. Feedback collected at the public workshop or through the online comment form related to Title 18 will be shared with the Reno Planning Commission when the draft ordinance is reviewed and discussed at a future public hearing, expected later this fall.
