Austintown seeks to clarify massage-parlor regulations

Published: Tue, May 27, 2014 @ 5:44 p.m.

AUSTINTOWN — The Mahoning County Planning Commission has endorsed a proposed new section of the Austintown zoning code that would be devoted exclusively to massage-parlor regulation.

Darren Crivelli, township zoning inspector, said the new section would clarify the Austintown’s regulations concerning such establishments and eliminate ambiguities in the code.

It would specify new prohibitions against electronic signs, flashing strobe lights and portable signs for such establishments and limit the parlors to a single 40-square-foot sign on each of their walls.

The township permits such establishments in industrially zoned areas and in properties fronting state Route 46 that are within 4,000 feet north or south of Interstate 80.

Well Dave still running Austintown from the county. If they run a business, meet the zoning, building and have the permits in place, leave them alone. If no one wanted to visit these places they would go broke and close, they haven’t. Just regulate them like you do all businesses in Austintown and move on. Now NEW regulations on JUST this business. Next Austintown will be in court and will be paying a Discrimination fee to these places. But bars can have all the signage they want and allow drunk people to leave and drive and posssible kill someone.
