Vassalboro Nudity Ordinance 

Residents of Vassalboro packed into the town office Wednesday night. Their mission, draft a new town ordinance addressing nudity. The issue started when the topless coffee shop, the Grand View, opened. The owner now wants to expand the business, and add a strip club. Vassalboro residents discussed several options, including an outright ban on establishments that have nudity. Many residents say, at the very least, they want to set strict guidelines for any new businesses opening in town.Vassalboro selectwoman Libby Mitchell warns an outright ban could result in a long legal battle. When the town of Farmingdale tried to put a ban on the books, the state supreme court overturned the ordinance. Vassalboro town selectmen will draft an ordinance in the next week and then hold another public hearing.The final vote will be June 8th.
