It has come to the communities attention that a new "Holistic Spa" has opened at  Unit 1, 58 Wellington Rd 7, Centre Wellington, ON N0B 1S0.  This establishment appears to fall under "Adult Entertainment" as it can be found advertising on several "Adult Only" Sites as can be seen in these links: (Please note for this link you must agree you are 21 and it brings you to a very graphic pornographic video)

According to our current by bylaw :

Definition: Adult Entertainment Establishment means any premises or any part of such premises if, in the pursuance of a business, (a) goods, entertainment or services that are designed to appeal to erotic or sexual appetites or inclinations are provided in the premises or part of the premises; or (b) body-rubs, including the kneading, manipulating, rubbing, massaging, touching or stimulating by any means of a person’s body, are performed, offered or solicited in the premises or part of the premises, but does not include premises or part of them where body-rubs performed, offered or solicited are for the purpose of medical or therapeutic
treatment and are performed or offered by persons otherwise duly qualified, licensed or registered to do so under the laws of the Province of Ontario. 

4.3.2 No adult entertainment establishment shall be permitted within 500 metres
(1,640 ft) of a lot containing any of the following uses: a church, a school, a
cemetery, a hospital, a day care centre, a retirement home, a nursing home, a
group home, a museum, a library. Such a separation distance shall be
measured using the closest points on the main wall of each building or

This location is 100 meters from Family & Childrens Services and Fergus Bounce Indoor Playground 6484 Wellington Rd 7, Elora, ON N0B 1S0.  Which is a play area for children.

We would like town councillors to revise our current adult entertainment bylaw and add more up-to-date regulations to ensure these establishments are a good fit with our community and, if they are deemed to be a good fit, that they follow proper health & safety regulations and are properly located. 

This petition will be presented to town council.
