MICHIGAN CITY | Officials here are of restricting where adult businesses can locate.

No decisions have been made, but one option being considered is restricting establishments like strip clubs and adult book stores to areas zoned for manufacturing.

Among the specific places where they might be allowed are on Ind. 212 on the city's far east side, an area that contains both manufacturing and housing, officials said.

Mayor Ron Meer said no adults businesses have come forward but in case one ever does the city wants to have tighter zoning restrictions in place so they are properly located.

''We want to makes sure our community is properly protected,'' Meer said.
