Community Leaders Upset About Nude Club Near New Casino

UPDATED: Tuesday December 4, 2012 12:09 PM

A new all-nude club near Hollywood Casino is sparking a community debate, according to a report in The Columbus Dispatch.

The Road House has replaced the Candy Store on Georgesville Road.

An unnamed contractor for The Road House said they want to bring a "Vegas feel" to the casino area. The worker said that club closes at midnight and does not serve alcohol.

"The strip club kind of smacks you in the face as something the majority of the community wouldn't agree with. That's not the image you want when you're trying to rejuvenate an area," said Dewey Stokes, a township resident and former Franklin County commissioner.

Officials fear the Road House will bring an increase in crime to the area.
