No re-zoning for adult business
I am against Mr. Ryan Wickens and the Terre Haute Board of Zoning Appeals approving the request made by Mr. Mike Bickers, an Illinois resident, to re-zone the property at 3295 North Fruitridge Avenue. This property should not be used as an adult business of any kind. Any time Mr. Bickers, and/or any other Ruth & Bick Inc. owner (four), go before the board, I request that each member of the board vote against this re-zoning request, or any request to have this property be used for anything other than noble causes. This adult business could be a strip club, juice bar, adult cabernet, adult book store, adult video store, adult night club, adult motion picture, or adult theater. Any of these options decimate loving relationships between husbands and wives, destroy families, and are derogatory towards women. Further, this property is one mile from Terre Haute North Vigo High School: It is unacceptable to have an adult business so close to a high school, as it will entice high school students on their way home from school and to and from extracurricular events. I request that the board deny any of Mr. Bickers requests for this property, and any other requests for an adult business in Terre Haute.
