Jill Remington Love- Porn’s Newest Enemy

Salt Lake City- If Salt Lake City Council chairwoman Jill Remington Love has her way, strippers wil be ridden out of town on a rail. Strippers don’t belong in Salt Lake City, Remington Love is saying.

With a six-month moratorium on strip clubs in the central business district already in place, Remington Love has already secured a majority vote and possibly a unanimous vote among City Council members to vote to permanently ban sexually oriented businesses, like strip clubs, from downtown.

The council imposed a temporary ban this past September, saying it wanted to study the pros and cons of allowing strip clubs downtown. “I don’t think it’s appropriate to have them in our central business district,” Remington Love said at the time. “It affects properties all around these clubs, and I don’t think it’s appropriate in our downtown.” Remington Love said the city has adopted policies to build up downtown, and banning strip clubs “will probably be just one more thing” to protect downtown. Remington Love isn’t alone in her desire to ban strip clubs and other sexually oriented businesses downtown. All six council members are saying they plan to vote for a permanent ban.

“I would be in favor of not having them downtown,” Councilman Van Turner said. “You can just put me down in print as being against” strip clubs downtown. A vote is scheduled for this month. The moratorium was imposed last year after the Dead Goat Saloon re-opened as a strip club at 165 S. West Temple, just a block from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ Salt Lake Temple. The saloon even renamed itself the Crazy Goat Saloon. At the time, many City Council members said they didn’t realize strip clubs and other sexually oriented businesses were a permitted use in the downtown zoning districts and quickly enacted the moratorium.

The city did grant the Crazy Goat’s application for one stripper stage. Given the moratorium, City Attorney Ed Rutan said the saloon can only have one stage, even though owner Daniel Darger wants more. The issue became heated in Salt Lake City. Many members of the LDS Church and downtown business owners denounced the strip club, saying it would contribute to the blight and decay of downtown. The council, which consists of seven LDS Church members, is expected to vote on the new rules next month after a recommendation from the Planning Commission.

To make strip clubs illegal downtown, the council will have to change zoning rules to forbid sexually oriented businesses in the central business district. Such businesses would still be allowed in less noticeable areas of the city. “Let’s put them in places that won’t affect families and children,” Councilman Eric Jergensen said. “Our city’s about other things besides strippers.”
