Video Gaming Ordinance

Video gaming should not be allowed in future gas stations, truck stops, or commercial establishments that are less than 500 ft. from single family dwellings.

Why is this important?

Strict regulations and parameters must be established in order to ensure the safety, traffic, and well-being of all residential neighborhoods. Our community is not opposed to overall gaming in commercial establishments, in appropriate locations, as we believe gaming can continue to be an additional source of revenue for businesses statewide. However, we firmly believe there is a need to limit the negative impact gaming will have on residential neighborhoods.
