A. 
Adult entertainment establishments are hereby acknowledged to have special characteristics and impacts upon their surroundings, and impacts upon the use and enjoyment of adjacent property. It is the intent of these regulations to provide for the confinement of adult entertainment establishments to those commercial and industrial areas in which these special impacts are judged to be least disruptive to the use and enjoyment of adjacent properties. These regulations are further intended to require that adult entertainment establishments shall not be permitted to locate in such concentration that their operational features may establish the dominant character of any commercial or industrial area.
B. 
These regulations are further intended to protect and balance lawful rights of expression with other lawful rights to the enjoyment and use of property. Adult entertainment uses are recognized as having serious objectionable operational characteristics, particularly if several such uses are concentrated, thereby having a deleterious effect upon adjacent areas and could contribute to blight and degradation of the surrounding neighborhood. The special regulation of adult entertainment establishments is necessary to ensure that the adverse affect of such uses will not contribute to the blighting of surrounding neighborhoods whether residential or non-residential by location or concentration and to ensure the stability of such neighborhoods.
