Changes are coming to Louisville strip clubs.


The adult entertainment ordinance was passed six years ago, but now after a recent Supreme Court ruling, city officials said they will begin enforcing this ordinance within the next month.


All of the strip clubs will become bikini bars because according to the ordinance, full nudity is not allowed.
But thatís not all... and some say, itís not fair.


They may all still look the same on the outside, but in 30 days, inside, the view will be much different, after the controversial adult entertainment ordinance goes into effect.


Madonna Flood, Ordinance Sponsor said, ďI think itís a win for the community, because now they canít be operating in residential areas and they canít have the type of behavior that actually brings in some of the secondary effects that the residents face.Ē


Councilwoman, Madonna Flood, was one of the original sponsors of the 2004 ordinance which prohibits full nudity, lap dances and alcohol, prevents customers from directly tipping dancers, forces the strip clubs and dancers to pay for licenses and creates a six foot buffer zone between patrons and dancers.


Metro council members said they enacted the provision because of concerns over the secondary effects of adult entertainment businesses.


ďYou have property values that depreciate, thereís crime that comes in, such as prostitution and drugs, that happen overnight,Ē said Flood.


Right after the Metro Council passed it, Jefferson County strip clubs filed a lawsuit, challenging its constitutionality. The case made it to the state Supreme Court, which upheld the ordinance; and now, in the 30 days, it will go into effect.


ďWhen we pass laws, we mean to enforce them and itís to protect people in this community. And all businesses, whether itís adult entertainment or itís your local department stores, there are zoning laws and those are created to protect the citizens, and thatís what our job is to do,Ē said Flood.


Letters notifying the businesses will be sent out by the Office of Inspections, Permits and Licensing; Shortly after, inspections will begin and those not in compliance will face penalties.
