ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- A call by a business person could mean adult stores could be on the way to Clay County. Some say it's a bad move, but others say in this economy, any business is good.

The County's economic development team is asking council members to look at drafting an ordinance that would let adult stores set up shop in certain area.

Right now, the proposal says the stores may be allowed in areas zoned "Heavy Industrial" and "Heavy Business".

It's drawing a mixed reaction.

"Business is business," said Ryan McIntyre. "What somebody wants to do with their money inside their house is their business."

Not everyone agrees. Amber Griffin is a mom of four. She said it's a step backward for the county.

"I think a lot of people move to Clay County like ourselves to get away from things that go on in Jacksonville," she said.

A Clay County Commissioner told First Coast News research is still being done on the proposal. No public hearings have been scheduled, and no firm date is set for council to discuss the proposal yet.
