VALLEY BROOK, Oklahoma (KFOR) - An Oklahoma community is saying "thanks, but no thanks" to a new business wanting to locate in their neighborhood.
Residents of Valley Brook are fighting against new strip clubs.
Plans for vacant slots in a Valley Brook strip mall include a pizza parlor, renovations to this old gas station and a fully nude gentlemen's club to accompany the existing two partially nude clubs in the complex.
Lifelong resident Tressie Lawson says their presentation was professional and it's nice of them to ask of the city's permission, but insists there isn't any more room in Valley Brook for strip clubs.
"We don't want to be known for that sort of thing," says Lawson. "We are a fairly quiet little neighborhood."
The property's owners have told the city they've had a very difficult time leasing the property and would like an opportunity to bring the complex to life.
One of the existing club's in the complex addressed residents' concerns in a tweet this morning stating "the property has sat empty for three years and the developer wishes to continue to develop the plaza into an entertainment district for Valley Brook."
Lawson says she and her neighbors are still not buying it. What has residents so upset is the thought of something family friendly in the same complex.
Lawson says, "We have nothing out there for the kids!"
She and her neighbors are worried about their hometown's reputation. They plan to keep attending town hall meetings until their voices are heard.
Lawson says, "Find somewhere else to go!"
