Associated Press Release
ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta's city council has rejected legislation that would have forced adult entertainment clubs and shops along Cheshire Bridge Road to move within five years.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/11Ucc8u) that Councilman Alex Wan's legislation failed by a 9 to 6 vote on Monday night.
Audience members in the packed council chamber erupted in applause at the vote, including dozens of Club Onyx employees who have actively opposed the legislation since it was introduced earlier this year.
Some council members cited concerns that forcing the clubs to move would push them to other communities. Other members shared discomfort with phasing out previously-granted zoning uses.
