Strip club doesn't belong next door to a convent

The strip club sits in a neighborhood where young children and families live, where elderly nuns come to retire and young sisters come to deepen their faith. It is not a neighborhood where a strip club belongs.
Residents and their dogs are invited to use the dog park from 8AM – 8PM, seven days a week throughout the summer and fall months. Rules and regulations are posted at the site and individuals must obtain a permit from the village of Melrose Park to utilize the park.
