Adult uses shall be allowable in the Industrial District only as a special use by the Zoning Board of Appeals after public hearing.
A. 
Purposes and considerations.
(1) 
In the execution of this section, it is recognized that there are some uses which, due to their very nature, have serious objectionable characteristics. The objectionable characteristics of these uses are further heightened by their concentration in any one area, thereby having deleterious effects on adjacent areas. Special regulation of these uses is necessary to ensure that these adverse effects will not contribute to the blighting or downgrading of the surrounding neighborhoods or land uses.
(2) 
It is further declared that the location of these uses in regard to areas where our youth may regularly assemble and the general atmosphere encompassing their operation is of great concern to the Village of Farmingdale.
(3) 
These special regulations are itemized in this section to accomplish the primary purposes of preventing a concentration of these uses in any one area and restricting their accessibility to minors.
B. 
Definitions. As used in this section, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
