Prince George’s dressing down county strip clubs

The number of adult entertainment venues operating in Prince George’s has seen a drop of approximately 75 percent since 2011, according to county officials.

“Right now, we believe there are approximately 16 places in Prince George’s County that are operating as nightclubs featuring adult entertainment,” said Gary Cunningham, deputy director of the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement, during a briefing Feb. 24 before the Prince George’s County Council.

The briefing came about following media reports about banquet halls and private clubs operating as adult entertainment venues.

Cunningham said that number is down from approximately 60 in 2011.

Deputy County Attorney Jarred McCarthy said the county passed zoning legislation in 2010 and 2011 restricting adult entertainment venues to areas 1,000 feet or more away from school or residential zones, McCarthy said.
