Video Game Rooms Zoned in Boston
In Boston, a limited prohibition of video games has gone into effect, despite an attempt by the New England Coin Machine Operators Association to get a court order stopping enforcement of the law.
The policy prohibits video-game licensing in local neighborhood business zones or residential zones unless there has been approval from Boston's zoning board of appeal.
"The bottom line," said a city government spokesman in explaining the rationale for the law, "is that it's now very easy to turn down approval based simply on community opposition."
