(Salt Lake City-AP) -- No strip clubs east of 300 West. That's the new zoning rule that was approved last night by the Salt Lake City Planning Commission.

The commission voted to outlaw sexually oriented businesses anywhere in the city east of 300 West.

The City Council decided to re-examine the zoning laws after the Crazy Goat Saloon -- formerly the Dead Goat Saloon -- reopened as a strip club, a block from the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The new rules will now go to the City Council which will hold a public hearing on the issue March 18 and vote sometime after that.

Six council members have said they'd vote in favor of the new rules.
