Ocean City Boardwalk To Become The Wild West?

With the recent Court Ruling that Street Performers no longer have to sign up for spaces a week in advance of time and no longer restricted to dedicated areas and times, is the Ocean City boardwalk destined to become a wild west of boardwalk barkers, and boardwalk acts?

I remember having this fight myself with the pole girl a few years back and the issue still stands, without some rules in place Ocean City is in deep trouble. Yes families will still come for the Fries and popcorn, but while sitting on the benches taking in the sea air are they also going to be subjected and bombarded by crazy performers?. I think you are asking for serious problems with the carnival atmosphere this is inviting into the resort.

The problem is hat can be done? The lawmakers in Ocean City have fought this but the courts keep overturning them. When does common sense come into play here. I am tired of the needs of the few outweighing the needs of the many mentality that prevails in this Country, and sadly Ocean City is caught in a PC nightmare now. The majority of visitors to that Boardwalk do not want to be bombarded with uncontrolled acts. There should be designated areas and times they can do their thing so if I want to partake than it is up to me to do so, not just be subjected to it because they play a victim.

The solution would be for the city to sell off the the boardwalk.

Not sell off the boardwalk but deed it to adjacent property owners. When repairs or replacement needed the city does it though the grant system. Other areas have done something similar to solve this problem. It's very unfortunate that OC officials don't have enough intelligence themselves to hire attorneys with working brains. That goofy thing they have isn't worth a damn and has cost the city more money then people can count. That's what happens when backwards unsophisticated never get off the shore people are making the decisions.

Hey, the "wild west" turned out just fine. Well, maybe except for California. It's best to just leave things alone as long as long as it doesn't physically hurt you. If you just get offended then go somewhere else.

1:41 p.m. opinions like your's are just like cracks, everybody has one! So we don't pay any more or less attention to it just in case you thought you were some kind of genius. The "performers" are there to entertain, if its not your thing then simply walk on by, not that difficult even for a genius like you. Some of the musicians are darn good and some folks truly enjoy and tip them accordingly. All the City wanted was the revenue, lord forbid something would not cost to enjoy! You sound like a northerner, so go back to PA and enjoy your life.
