Coastal Code Change Reminders For Ocean City Beachgoers

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Wiping off dust and stocking up store fronts -- businesses in Ocean City are gearing up for the new season.

"We're going to have a banner year -- definitely looking for a good season. We have new stuff coming in and we always like to out-do ourselves," Owner of DreamWeaver Sean Lackner said.

It was beautiful day to spend the first day of spring.

"It's great to see everybody coming out, and soon it will be summer! I'm so tired of the snow," Lenore Bennett of Berlin, Md. said.

"We're out enjoying the sunshine and getting out of the house, finally, after all this rainy weather. We're so done with the snow. We're ready for the sun!" Leslie Walker said.

If you plan to hit the sand this year, there are some changes to look out for. The town council is set to vote on "no profanity" signs to post along the boardwalk.

"Well it would make sense because there are a lot of families out here -- a lot of kids," Nicholas Jesuitas said.

"Well, I don't know if it will help any. It's a good idea. I'm fine with that. It's a shame that we have to put signs up to state such a thing, but you know every little bit helps. It is a family resort," Bennett said.  

A pilot program for stand up paddleboards unanimously passed its first reading at a town council meeting in February. But remember, no balls on the beach from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Under age partiers can party a little longer after the council voted to extend closing hours at underage clubs, on a case by case basis.

Musicians are free to play along the brand new boardwalk, after a permanent injunction was imposed on the town's 30 foot sound restriction.

Keep an eye out for new pedestrian crossing signals – remember to have fun, but always keep safety first.

If you plan to head to any of the Delaware beaches this year, keep in mind Rehoboth and Dewey beaches recently passed smoking bans. Dewey has also installed a number of security cameras throughout the area, so you'll want to look out for those as well.
