Austintown seeks to clarify massage-parlor regulations

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.
