SECTION TWO. The existence of alcoholic beverage establishments appears to contribute directly to numerous peace, health, safety and general welfare problems including loitering, littering, drug trafficking, prostitution, public drunkenness, defacement and damaging of structures, pedestrian obstructions, as well as traffic circulation, parking and noise problems on public streets and neighborhood lots. The existence of such problems creates serious impacts on the health, safety and welfare of residents of single- and multiple-family within the district, including fear for the safety of children, elderly residents and of visitors to the district. The problems also contribute to the deterioration of the neighborhood and concomitant devaluation of property and destruction of community values and quality of life. The number of establishments selling alcoholic beverages and the associated problems discourage more desirable and needed commercial uses in the area. In order to preserve the residential character and the neighborhood-serving commercial uses of the area, there shall be a moratorium on the issuance of new liquor licenses within the area beginning at the point of intersection of S Vandeventer Ave and I-44, and proceeding northerly along S Vandeventer Ave to Tower Grove Ave, and proceeding southerly along Tower Grove Ave to Folsom Ave, and proceeding easterly along Folsom Ave to Klemm St, and proceeding southerly along Klemm St to McRee Ave, and proceeding easterly along McRee Ave to Lawrence St, and proceeding northerly along Lawrence St to Folsom Ave, and proceeding easterly along Folsom Ave to S 39th St, and proceeding northerly along S 39th St to Park Ave, and proceeding easterly along Park Ave to S Grand Blvd, and proceeding northerly along St Grand Blvd to Norfolk and Western Rlwy, and proceeding westerly along Norfolk and Western Rlwy to Prospect Ave, and proceeding northerly along Prospect Ave to Forest Park Blvd, and proceeding easterly along Forest Park Blvd to S Grand Blvd, and
