TWENTYNINE PALMS CITY COUNCIL PUTS MORATORIUM ON MASSAGE PARLORS

The Twentynine Palms City Council last night took action on massage parlors and taxis, but not on vacation rentals. Reporter David Haldane was there and filed this story…
If you want to open a massage parlor in Twentynine Palms, you may have to cool your heels a bit. The City Council last night placed a moratorium on opening any new ones for at least six months. The action—which doesn’t affect the city’s eight existing parlors—came in response, ironically, to a planning commission recommendation that the areas permitting massage businesses be expanded. But, with one exception, the Council voted no.
The exception was Councilman Joel Klink who said that a moratorium sends the wrong message to other businesses the city hopes to attract. “It shows people that we don’t want businesses to come to Twentynine Palms. It’s throwing off bad vibes.”
In other actions, the Council postponed a decision on whether to allow owner-occupied duplexes to be used as vacation rentals. It also voted to permit taxi stands and dispatch services in certain areas.
