When it comes to public controversy, not all commercial uses are created equal. Many communities have a demand for sexually oriented businesses, payday loan stores, liquor stores, pawnshops, gun stores, tattoo shops, and massage parlors. However, the negative perceptions and potential secondary impacts, whether actual or imagined, associated with these contentious uses have led to a range of local regulatory responses. How does your community regulate these commercial uses?

This PAS Essential Info Packet includes excerpts from APA publications along with sample zoning and licensing requirements from cities and counties large and small. Take a look to see how some jurisdictions employ use-specific standards to quell controversy.
