NEW ORLEANS - A city commission is weighing whether to rein in the number of strip clubs on Bourbon Street and the surrounding French Quarter, both to curb crime and tame one of America's most popular, and wild, entertainment districts.
On Tuesday, the City Planning Commission may recommend limiting the number of strip clubs on Bourbon Street to seven - half as many as there are today on the famous street with a long history of cabaret, exotic dancers and brothels.
The City Council is expected to vote on the commission's recommendations in the coming months.
Cracking down on sin stirs debate in New Orleans, a city that embraces tolerance as it struggles with crime.
The commission is looking at reducing the number of clubs through attrition, not forced closures.
