Ocean City Considering "No Profanity" Signs & Stand Up Paddleboards

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - From paddleboards to profanity, some changes could be on the way for Ocean City.

The beach patrol is currently working on a pilot plan to present to the recreation and parks department,which would allow the use of stand up paddleboards starting September of this year.

The City Council is also considering whether to install "no profanity" signs on the boardwalk. Councilwoman Mary Knight has asked the police commission to come up with a recommendation for the signage, which would be a friendly reminder that Ocean City is a family-friendly destination.

"They use the signs in Virginia Beach. Our signs will be different. Ours are not enforceable. If it's passed by the council, there will be no ordinance associated with it - you won't be fined. In Virginia Beach, there is a fine associated with it," Knight said.

The police commission will present their recommendation next Monday, and the council should vote on the measure in a couple weeks. If it passes, the signs would go up this summer.
