The Adult Entertainment Rules and Regulations are required by Baltimore City Code, and therefore the draft rules were published in the Code of Baltimore Regulations Annotated Register (COBRA) on Friday, March 15, 2024. They can be accessed on the COBRA website.  

The public may submit comments on both sets of draft Rules and Regulations to the designated BLLC Email.
