Zoning

Some municipalities have zoning laws that say bars and nightclubs can't be near churches or schools.

From a traffic planning point of view, that's the exact opposite of the way it should be. They have different hours of business, so having them next to each other would level-load transit usage in the neighborhood, and allow them to share parking lots. Late-night noise from a nightclub won't bother anyone in an empty school, and noise from screaming kids at recess won't bother an empty daytime nightclub.
