Replies to email posted to League of California Cities attorneys@lists.cacities.org, hced@lists.cacities.org,
public_safety@lists.cacities.org listserves, shown below.
The City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) is interested in finding out what other cities and counties have done to
regulate adult entertainment, particularly strip clubs. CCSF already has a patchwork of laws and regulations, but would
like to rationalize them and consider adopting good practices of other jurisdictions. Does your jurisdiction have a
comprehensive approach, through codes or permitting, addressing private booths, stage fees, or other issues pertinent
to dancer health, safety, and welfare?

It looks like San Diego might have gone through a similar process in 2000.

I would greatly appreciate any information that you could provide and will report the findings back to the listserve.

Regards,

Andrew
