"Red Light District" Signs Covered Up

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. - The controversial "Red Light District" signs on and outside of the new Salisbury business have been covered up.  A blue tarp now covers the sign right on the front of the building as well as the large white signs that were put up in the tall display in the corner of the store's parking lot.

Since August 12th, the city had been fining the owners of the Red Light District for putting up those signs without a permit.  The total in fines had reached almost six thousand dollars, before Friday.  The mayor's office confirms to WBOC that because the signs have been covered up, the fines will stop, for now.

The signs may be covered, but Craig Wilson, an elder at the Cathedral of Love Church, is not happy with the business.

"Those that live in this community, those that live right behind it do not want to see this business in this community.  They have families, they have children, and this is not the right location for this type of business," said Wilson.

WBOC reached out to Cynthia MacDonald, legal representation for the owners of the Red Light District.  She said she would meet with her clients and they will determine if they want to make a statement about the situation next week.  And while the city searches for action to take against the store, leaders at the Cathedral of Love are planning to show their displeasure as well.

"We plan to get other churches in the area involved, get the community involved.  If we have to do marches, if we have to do vigils, we are going to make it known that we are opposed to this type of business" said Wilson.

The city is also waiting for information from the store owners to help determine whether or not the business can be considered an adult retail store.  Information requested includes accounting information, a list of the items in stock and a detailed floor plan.
