NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Metro Council in Nashville has voted unanimously in favor of a change that would ban private clubs from properties zoned for office use.

The issue stems from a swinger’s club trying to relocate its business to a building that is adjacent to Goodpasture Christian School.

The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1M79LU9) reports dozens of people who oppose the new location for The Social Club attended the council meeting Tuesday night to show support for the ordinance, which would prevent the move. They also presented council members with a petition with about 5,000 signatures.

The club’s attorney, Larry Roberts, was the lone person to speak against the zoning change. He said the club bought the property after making sure that its intended use was legally acceptable.

Another vote is required before the decision is final.
