Mobile Home Prevents Lubbock Strip Club Permit

The property on 98th St., east of the strip, is nothing but a land of dirt. James and Shirley Stuart want to keep it that way. But that may not happen.

Last week, Lawrence Eugene Cannon filled out an application with Lubbock County. Cannon wants a permit to build a sexually oriented business right next door to the Stuarts. "Like the Bunny Ranch, Nibbles is the best I understand it. I'm not too familiar with that kind of business and I don't want to be. But that's what's going on over here, if they get their permit," said Shirley Stuart.

The Stuarts don't live on their piece of property, but in June, they rented out their 38 foot recreational vehicle to a Texas Tech student. It sits on their property. Little did they know at the time, it would be their saving grace.

Last Friday, county investigators came out and measured where this adult oriented business would be built. They literally said on the other side of the Stuarts fence. But according to county regulations, that's not 1,500 feet from the residence the Stuarts have on their property.

County ordinances say a sexually oriented business must be 1,500 feet away from churches, schools, or residences just to name few. "Finding out through the requirements, etc, the application was denied," said Bill Drewell, Lubbock Sheriff Captain.

However, the fight may not be over yet. Cannon has ten days to appeal the application rejection. The Stuarts are hopeful though, as long as they have someone living inside the 38 foot R.V. "As we're hoping, it will be the only thing to keep it from happening," said Shirley.

Cannon, the businessman, lives in Corpus Christi. NewsChannel 11 was not able to reach his attorney Dennis McGill for a comment.

County officials say this is first sexually oriented business application they have received in almost ten years.
