Ocean City Establishes Skateboard Park Rules

first_imgIn addition to the bowl and snake run, the park will feature a variety of quarter pipes, ramps, tables and rails.The following protective equipment is required to be used while skating: helmet, elbow pads, knee pads. Use of alcohol and tobacco products is prohibited. Skate Park will be closed during inclement weather and/or when equipment is damaged or wet or for routine maintenance. Use of personally owned ramps, boxes, rails or other similar items is prohibited. The proposed skateboard park on the 500 block of Asbury Avenue includes a snake run and a bowl. A section of the bowl allows skaters to “transition” into the snake run. These features are on the West Avenue side of the proposed park.City Council voted Thursday to set rules for the skateboard park under construction on the 500 block of Asbury Avenue and to designate it as an “unsupervised facility.”Council passed the resolution in a 6-0 vote with Councilman Pete Guinosso abstaining, because he is a co-president of the Ocean City Ecumenical Council, which runs the charitable Clothes Closet next to the park.The rules are:Skate Park will be open daily from 9:00 am to dusk (weather permitting). Skating is prohibited on the adjacent parking lots, sidewalks and streets. No amplified sound is permitted except by permit. Skate Park is for skating. Bikes and scooters are prohibited. Proper behavior is required at all times. Abusive, profane language or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated. Parental supervision for inexperienced skaters and those less than 12 years of age 1s strongly recommended. Unsafe conditions should be reported to the City of Ocean City, Department of Community Services. No food or glass containers are permitted in the skate park. Rules violations will result in suspension of skating privileges.In a memo to council, Mayor’s Assistant Mike Dattilo said “guidelines for skate parks require the governing body to determine by resolution if the facility will be supervised or unsupervised.”“In this regard, ‘supervised’ means there is an attendant during all open hours actively monitoring the use of the park. ‘Unsupervised’ does not mean that the park will be completely unmonitored,” Dattilo said. “To the contrary, the park and its users will be checked frequently by members of the Police Department, Community Services Department and others.”The park remains on schedule to be complete in sometime in August.

Justin Theroux Vacations His Woes Away After Announcing Split From Jennifer Aniston

first_imgThis might be the best way to process a breakup.There are definitely good and bad ways to handle a breakup. But objectively speaking, one of the best ways to work through the end of a serious relationship is to go on a baller vacation. Not all of us have the resources to do it, but celebrities sure do, so they should be taking advantage of that like Justin Theroux is right now.Theroux and Jennifer Aniston are less than a month out from their divorce going public, and Theroux is apparently getting away from it all with an impromptu trip to Paris. He was spotted walking into the Ritz Hotel there looking less than thrilled about life (understandably) and going without his wedding ring for the first time in public. If you had any doubts these two are really over, this might just put them to rest.Aniston, meanwhile, ditched her wedding ring at least a day before Theroux and was spotted without it as she left best friend Courteney Cox’s Beverly Hills home. Aniston may not be getting out of town like Theroux is, but spending time with old friends has to be good for her soul right now.Theroux and Aniston announced their split the day after Valentine’s Day in a joint statement that was heartbreaking for fans who thought Aniston had finally found the happy ending she deserved.“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship,” the wrote.Sourcelast_img read more
