[Ord. No. 30-92]
The Borough of Keyport has given due consideration to the character of the Borough as a whole and makes the following findings:
The Borough of Keyport is a small, completely developed and to a great extent a bedroom community. The commercial areas of the community are not isolated from the residential areas and are limited in size, location and space, with commercial activities designed to serve the needs of residential customers rather than transient traffic. Said commercial areas are in relatively close proximity to the primary and secondary schools, child-care centers, the churches in the Borough and the other community-oriented activities within the Borough. Pedestrian traffic using the sidewalks in the commercial areas of the Borough is for the most part made up of residents of the Borough, including substantial numbers of primary and secondary school children going to and from a school, as well as shoppers at the retail commercial establishments. Moreover, the Borough Council is further of the opinion that public indecency would have a direct harmful impact upon the health, safety, welfare, and order of not only the adult residents of the Borough but also the children within the Borough.
