The separation required between adult uses shall be measured from the point of public access among the buildings housing such uses. That nonrestricted portion of any parcels or buildings not included within any portion of the above-referenced 1,000 ft. setback areas may be used for adult uses.

1.b. The city may, using process IV, approve this use regardless of its proximity to the uses and zone specified in note (1)(a)(7), above, based on the following criteria:

    (1) The extent to which the topography or physical features of the area would result in effective separation in terms of visibility and access;

    (2) The compatibility of the proposed use with nearby uses;

    (3) The lack of availability of alternative locations for the proposed use, based on the requirements of note (1)(a) above;

    (4) The availability of transportation routes to allow motorists and pedestrians to avoid the proposed use if they wish to do so.
