SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

On Reading Road, smack dab in the middle of downtown Sharonville, is where the owners of the adult store Pink Pyramid planned to move their business that's been in downtown Cincinnati for 24 years.
 
But a recent vote by the Sharonville City Council proposes to change that plan.

According to Sharonville Mayor Kevin Hardman, the Sharonville City Council recently learned that a sexually-oriented business, the Pink Pyramid, wished to relocate to their downtown in an area populated with several churches, schools and the local culture arts center where many community events are held. 

As a result of the news, Council unanimously passed legislation to put a temporary halt to the addition of sexually-oriented businesses in Sharonville. 

Mayor Hardman spoke with us about this decision, saying quote, "I was happy to sign this. I am looking forward to working with our Community Development department to examine options to keep sex shops away from our neighborhood's children." 

George Vanover, the co-owner of the Pink Pyramid, told us that he hasn't been notified of any changes by the city of Sharonville. 

He said he recently went to the zoning board to ensure the plans were still on track and according to him, the board only asked him about signage but did not express concern. 

Vanover had planned to open the Pink Pyramid in Sharonville on Dec. 1st.
