COUNCIL

A. Proclamation Designating May 26 – June 1 as National
Hurricane Preparedness Week

HURRICANE AWARENESS WEEK – May 26 – June 1, 2013


Hurricanes have been responsible for loss of life, injury and damage in the
State of Maryland…and, high winds and water which may accompany hurricanes are
particularly life-threatening in their intensity and duration; and

WHEREAS, Preparing the residents of the State of Maryland for hurricanes and the
devastation that accompanies them is a function of government, dependent on the
leadership of public officials, the efforts of many dedicated volunteers and
professionals, and the awareness and cooperation of the public; and

WHEREAS, Federal, State, local and private organizations are improving preparedness
and attempting to inform the public of the steps that should be taken to save lives and
protect property to include evacuations and safety measures, flood-proofing and wind-
proofing techniques and the availability of flood insurance; and

WHEREAS, By understanding the dangers associated with hurricanes and by taking
reasonable precautions, the citizens of Maryland can reduce the loss of life, injury and
property damage.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Richard W. Meehan, Mayor of the Town of Ocean City,
Maryland, do hereby proclaim the week of May 26 – June 1, 2013 as HURRICANE
AWARENESS WEEK in Ocean City and do commend this observance to all of our
citizens.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the
Town of Ocean City, Maryland to be affixed this 20
th
day of May in the year of our
Lord two thousand and thirteen.

town needs. During prior Hurricanes, the military sent National Guard personnel with Humvee and 2-
1/2 Ton vehicles to assist with evacuations. The National Guard requires two staff plus a spotter in each
vehicle, which leaves little room for evacuees in the Humvee. Humvee vehicles would be acquired

i. To include regular hours, overtime straight, and overtime premium
b. Deployment must remain CONFIDENTIAL to protect officer’s safety.
6. Motion made by Dennis Dare and Seconded by Lloyd Martin to have weekly statistical reports changed
to monthly reports. The reports should be received by the Mayor and City Council the first week of every
month – one week before the Police Commission meetings.
7. New parking meters are moving forward this summer including at the Public Safety Building parking lot.
The Town expects to receive revenue from violations. A program must be in place to assure consistent
enforcement efforts are being applied throughout the town.
8. There was one ECD (Taser) incident in April requiring display only, which produced immediate

Tourism Commission Meeting Minutes
May 13, 2013


The following individuals were in attendance:
Commission Members – Tourism Commission Chair and Council Secretary Mary
Knight, Councilman Dennis Dare, Councilman J oe Mitrecic, Chris Trimper, HMRA
representative, J ohn Gehrig, Chamber representative. Staff members present were David
Recor, City Manager; Donna Abbott, Tourism Director; Larry Noccolino, Convention
Center Director; Lisa Osman, Tourism Department; Frank Miller, Special Events; and
Tom Shuster, Recreation & Parks Director. Also present were Margot Amelia, Executive
Director of the Maryland Office of Tourism Development, Melanie Pursel, Chamber of
Commerce and Susan J ones, HMRA. Media representatives present were J oanne
Shriner, Maryland Coast Dispatch and Zach Hoopes, Ocean City Today.

Update on State’s Tourism Marketing Plans
Mary Knight opened the meeting by introducing Margot Amelia. Margot gave a
presentation on the Maryland Office of Tourism and discussed their strategic planning,
success measurements, current and future strategies. Leisure travel to Maryland is on the
upswing. Leisure travel grew 8 percent in 2011, 30 percent since 2007. The economic
impact of Tourism in Maryland was $14.3 billion in 2011. Margot can provide a
breakdown of Ocean City’s numbers. Margot mentioned the state would like to expand
its marketing in the New York/New J ersey area. It is necessary to target larger, and more
distant metropolitan areas such as these. The state also has plans to increase outreach in
Canada. Margot suggested that Ocean City have a seminar on Canadian money
conversion in the future.

Update from Tourism Commission Metrics Subcommittee
Mary reported the metrics subcommittee, consisting of herself, Donna Abbott, Melanie
Pursel, Susan J ones and J ohn Gehrig met the previous week to discuss ways to measure
tourism success. It was agreed to use a range of metrics currently available including
room and food tax, sales tax, Smith Travel Report data, solid waste volume, bus ridership
and revenue, Inlet Lot revenue, demoflush, website traffic, social media stats and other
items, to compile in monthly and annual reports. Susan J ones reported her board believed
Smith Travel Report, while only reporting on chains, fell in line with what smaller
properties were experiencing and would be a good metric to include. Mary mentioned
gathering zip codes from hotels to see where our visitors are traveling from. Susan said
her board was agreeable to sharing zip code and length of stay information. Margot
shared copies the state tourism office’s monthly recap of Maryland’s travel and tourism
trends, which Donna said her office would be able to reformat using Ocean City statistics.

“Book It Direct” campaign discussion
J ohn Gehrig gave a presentation on On-Line Travel Agents (OTAs). He suggested
possibly adding a banner to ococean.com to “Book-It Direct” or Rodney says “Book-It
Direct,” to make consumers aware they can book their rooms directly with the hotels on
the ococean website. While it is an individual choice by lodging businesses to participate
in these OTAs, there could be an impact on metrics such as room tax, if the commissions
paid out are not reporting room tax.

The next meeting will be held on J une 10, at 1:00, in Room 214 at the Convention
Center.

would be coordinated with boardwalk merchants and subject to available funding,
size and weight of the toys, Public Works ability to move and place the toys and
the toy manufacturer’s recommendation for installation on the beach.

The Committee asked Tom to narrow the number of options, get more price
information and availability. David Recor arrived at 4:50 P.M.

the Recreation Program Staff for the success of the tournament.

Upon further discussion by the committee, direction was given to make the focus
of the stage for Town sponsored or coordinated entertainment and to refer private
uses of the stage to the private event coordinator. A revised use procedure will be

Ocean City Private Events

Name of Event: Marine Corps Pull-Up Challenge New Event: No
Date of Event: J une 8-9 and 15-16, 2013
Date Application Received: April 23, 2013 Application Fee Paid: No, Exempt
Date Routed: April 23, 2013
Date Returned from All Departments: May 14, 2013 Total Cost to Town: Estimated at $550.00, not including
loss of paid parking revenue
Things to Note:
• This is a recruiting effort for the Marine Corps.
• The event is a pull-up challenge where prizes are given based on the number of pull-ups a participant can do.
• Items given away include shirts, hats, water bottles, key chains, I-pod armbands, and the like.
• Event would take place from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
• The event organizers would like to use a 10’x10’ portion of the beach and a 10’x10’ portion of the concrete pad at
Dorchester and Somerset Streets. The event organizers intend to set-up a 10’x10’ tent and place a pull-up bar next to
it in order to conduct the challenges. The pull-up bar takes up a 4’x4’ space. They would also like to park a vehicle
next to their booth on the concrete next to the sand at Dorchester and Somerset Streets. Lastly, they would like to set-
up a 6’ wide x 12’ tall inflatable.
• Unloading and loading will be done on the concrete just before the beach near Dorchester Street. They would need to
unload boxes, a tent, and pull-up bar. It would about 15-minutes to unload.
• The event organizers plan to form a line that does not hinder the shuttle on the Boardwalk. Should a crowd form; they
would be kept on the beach side of the event to keep spectators out of the way of the Boardwalk Trams.
• The event organizers would like to borrow 2 tables and 5 chairs from the town.
• The event organizers also request three (3) parking spaces in the Somerset Street or Dorchester Street lot.
• The event organizers expect 1,000 participants during both weekends.

Comments from Department Representatives:
• FIRE MARSHAL – A tent permit must be obtained from the Office of the Fire Marshal.
• PUBLIC WORKS – Will provide 2 tables and 5 chairs in addition to providing two (2) parking spaces in the
Dorchester Street parking Lot for their use. Total cost to the department last year was $550.00.
• TRANSPORTATION – Marine pull-up personnel MUST direct event spectators and participants not to stand in the
tram lane, inhibiting safe and clear passage.
• OCPD – Patrol will monitor the event and make sure no obstructions occur on the Boardwalk because of the event.
• OCBP – It is imperative that the event does not interfere with the normal patrolling of the beach. Dorchester Street
must remain open. In the past, the event sponsors have blocked access to the Dorchester Street ramp and, during set-
up, have parked a large trailer parallel to the beach, as well as set up a tent and pull-up station that blocked access
from the Boardwalk onto the beach. In the past we have received little cooperation and those who previously worked
this event for the Marines seemed unconcerned with Beach Patrol’s needs. All unloading MUST take place before 10
am. Also June 8
th
is BP scheduled pre-employment physical skills evaluation for the 2013 season. Registration,
orientation and instruction take place at Dorchester Street Boardwalk pad and have for the past 10+years. BP expects
over 100 candidates to take part. The Marines would need to change to another location for, at least J une 9
th
or maybe
even for both weekends.
• REC & PARKS – Due to BP comments, suggest event move to one of the following locations: Somerset Street bump
out, or across the Boardwalk at Somerset Street Plaza.
• EMERGENCY SERVICES, RISK MANAGEMENT, TOURISM, OCCC– No comments, concerns or costs.

Ocean City Private Events

Name of Event: OC Rally New Event: No
Date of Event: October 19, 2013
Date Application Received: February 20, 2013 Application Fee Paid: Yes - $25.00
Date Routed: February 20, 2013
Date Returned from All Departments: April 1, 2013 Total Cost to Town: $1,189.00
Things to Note:
• This event would be for anyone with an OC license plate. Cars with this license plate would stage at 27
th
Street and
then drive down the Boardwalk to the Inlet, where there would be up to ten tents (provided by the Downtown
Association) for various city organizations, including one for the Town of Ocean City. After riding down the
Boardwalk, the participants would gather in the Inlet Lot for a group photo.
• The event would take place from noon until 3:00 pm.
• Set-up would begin at 10:00 am on the day of the event.
• Clean up would begin at the event’s end and be completed by 3:30 pm.
• The applicant would like to set up tents and tables.
• The applicant requests two (2) monitors to control access to the Boardwalk and on-duty police officers to lead and end
the parade.
• The applicant requests cones to delineate the event area in the Inlet Lot, and to borrow tables and chairs from the
Town.
• There will be an award for best-decorated car.
• Expected number of participants is 150.
• Requests the waiver of any additional fees, as the town is a co-sponsor.
Comments from Department Representatives:
• PUBLIC WORKS – Seems to be a repeat of last year’s event. Will deliver five (5) tables, 10 chairs, and cone-off
rows AA, A and B (194 parking spaces) in the Inlet Lot. Inlet Lot is still open as “paid” operations, so arrangements
will have to be made for displaying passes to exit the lot without paying for parking should Council approve. Event
ends at 3:00 pm, so we suggest exiting the Lot by 4:00 pm to not be charged a parking fee. Because we will not have
any special event staff on duty following the event, we ask the applicant be required to remove cones, tables and chairs
and place in the northwest corner of the lot, thus opening the area to the general public for parking at the event’s
completion. Last year’s cost to support the event, not including lost parking revenue, was $889.00 and this year
should be similar.
• RISK – Insurance to be obtained and submitted prior to the event.
• REC & PARKS – Tents may not be staked in the Inlet Lot.
• OCPD – The event should be able to be staffed from the shift level, requiring minimal traffic control on Baltimore
Avenue as the vehicle stage for the parade, and two (2) officers to lead/follow the parade. Estimated cost to the
department is $300.00.
• FIRE MARSHAL – Permits for the use of the tents must be obtained from the Office of the Fire Marshal. An on-duty
EMS crew will be dispatched should an emergency medical condition occur or is needed under normal dispatch
procedures.
• EMERGENCY SERVICES, TRANSPORTATION, OCBP, TOURISM and CONVENTION CENTER – Have no
comments or concerns.

7. MISCELLEANEOUS REPORTS AND PRESENTATIONS

A. Request from Ida Lazarovich to Approve Inflatable
Signage



TOWN OF
The White Marlin Capital of the World




TO: The Honorable Mayor, Council President and Members of Council
FROM: David L. Recor, ICMA-CM, City Manager
RE: Inflatable Signage
DATE: May 15, 2013


ISSUE(S): Consideration of inflatable signage

SUMMARY: Ido Lazarovich of Sharks Beachwear, located on 13201 Coastal
Highway, is requesting Mayor and Council approval to use two (2)
18’ inflatable Air Dancers for advertisement purposes. One Air
Dancer will be placed on the south side of the building and the
other on the north side during the week of Memorial Day, Friday,
June 24 – Thursday, June 30 and the week of Fourth of July,
Monday, July 1 – Monday, July 8.

Section 66-6 of the Town Code generally prohibits inflatable
commercial signs; however, it does provide the Mayor and City
Council with an option to approve such signs based on certain
criteria.

Staff remarks include concerns that:
 Signs do not interfere with the ability of vehicle and pedestrian
traffic to utilize state/municipal roadways and walkways;
 Signs do not pose any electrical hazards, such as proximity to
any power source or power lines;
 Signs are secured for high winds; and
 The business has general liability insurance.

FISCAL IMPACT: A one-time permit fee for both intervals based on $1.18 per sq. ft.
for each inflatable – $ 42.48 each or $ 84.96.

RECOMMENDATION: Refer to Mayor and Council.

ALTERNATIVES: Not applicable.

RESPONSIBLE STAFF: Inspections will be required to ensure compliance during both time
periods.

COORDINATED WITH: Blaine Smith, Zoning Administrator
Kevin Brown, Chief Building Official
Capt. Greg Guiton, Acting Chief of Police

stone or clam shell for a commercial lot requires City Council
approval. The Harrison Group advises that this lot will be
temporary until the site is permanently developed, but did not
provide a time frame for permanent development.

FISCAL IMPACT: None

RECOMMENDATION: Allow the aggregate/shell material be used for the parking until
the site is permanently developed. Require the owner to take
measures to reduce dust by watering the lot as needed.

ALTERNATIVES: Require the use of approved material for the lot surface (asphalt,
concrete or pavers) and additional stormwater management
measures as required depending on the surface material used.

RESPONSIBLE STAFF: Gail Blazer, Environmental Engineer
Terence McGean, City Engineer
Blaine Smith, Assistant Planning Director

Engineering Department) Sub-grade soil must have a minimum
infiltration rate of one half inch (1/2”) per hour as determined by
a standard perc test with a plasticity index of zero. Fine graded
and moderately compacted such that the permeability of the
soil is not negatively impacted but soil is able to support the
expected vehicular load surcharge. Should filter fabric be
needed the following specifications are required:
Soil Retention 18mm
Permeability 5x 10
-5
Clogging Resistance n > 30%
Survivability Req’d Low
Gradation Widely Grade
.Relative Soil Density Medium
(b) Surface: Minimum 4” thickness aggregate material, with 0%

maintaining the stone surface and edge restraint. All stone
must be contained within the parking area and immediately
removed from the sidewalk, public street, or travel/back-up
areas. The surface must be kept free of weeds and other
vegetation. The surface grade shall be maintained as installed,
ruts and potholes must be repaired immediately. Add stone as
necessary to maintain grading and drainage. The surface shall
be kept moist as necessary to prevent dust and debris from
becoming airborne.

Dear Sir or Madam:

Re: New Commercial Parking Lot, Which is Also Seeking to Waive Design

7. MISCELLEANEOUS REPORTS AND PRESENTATIONS

C. Request Approval to Replace Fence on Town Right-of-
Way presented by Joe Moore, Attorney for Harrison Inlet
Acquisition, Inc.



TOWN OF
The White Marlin Capital of the World




TO: The Honorable Mayor, Council President and Members of Council
THRU: David L. Recor, ICMA-CM, City Manager
FROM: Terence J. McGean, PE, City Engineer
RE: Request to place picket fence in Baltimore Avenue right-of-way
DATE: May 13, 2013


ISSUE(S): Request permission to replace fence in city right-of-way along
Baltimore Ave at a proposed temporary parking lot located at 804
& 806 S. Baltimore Ave.

SUMMARY: The Harrison Groups is requesting to place a fence at the back of
the city side walk, which is approximately 8’ onto the Baltimore
Ave right-of-way. See attached site plan. The Council has a policy
that no improvements are allowed in the Baltimore Avenue right-
of-way except for landscaping.

There is a fence currently in the right-of-way along a portion of the
lot frontage on Baltimore Ave, and the old Adolpho Restaurant
front porch also encroached into the right-of-way prior to
demolition. The Planning Commission directed that a fence be
constructed around the entire length of the lot along Baltimore Ave
as a condition of site plan approval. Harrison Group will landscape
the 8’ width and will not use it for parking. They would prefer the
fence be on the street side of the landscaping in order to keep
pedestrians out of the landscaped beds.

Council has allowed existing encroachments in this right-of-way to
remain provided they are not expanded (i.e. signs can remain
provided the face square footage does not increase etc.).

FISCAL IMPACT: None

RECOMMENDATION: Replacement of the existing fence would be allowed at staff level.
The additional fence requires council approval. The Adolpho porch
has been removed from the right of-way, thereby reducing the net
amount of encroachment. Having a portion of the fence within the
right-of-way and another portion 8’ back would look out of place.
Staff recommends allowing the full length within the right-of-way
until such time as the lots are permanently developed.

ALTERNATIVES: Require the fence be set back 8’ including relocating the existing
fence.

Revised Policy on use of the City Right-of-Ways During Construction:
April 2010
Purpose:
To establish general guidelines regulating the use of City streets, sidewalks, and alleys as
staging areas, material storage areas, or other purposed including portable onsite storage
units (PODS) by residents, property owners or private contractors.
History:
In the past, contractors were routinely allowed use of up to one third of the width of a city
street adjacent to the project property during construction. This was based on guidance
from the Building Code. As the amount of development in the Town increased,
particularly "in-fill" development and large projects requiring year round construction,
the impacts of this policy became a nuisance. The impacts include the loss of on street
parking, traffic congestion, pedestrian movement and emergency equipment access
restrictions. As a result of these problems, the policy was modified and each request for
street usage is reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis by the Engineering
Department.
The "case by case" approach significantly reduced the impacts of construction street use.
However, problems with the practice continue and there is confusion and uncertainty
among contractors as to what amount of right-of-way, if any, they will be permitted to
utilize on any given project.
Policy:
Activities requiring Permits and Permitting Authority:
Any Closure of all or a po1tion of any City street, sidewalk, public parking space, or alley
for the purposes of construction, construction staging, material storage or other related
. use by anyone other than local, State or Federal government employees or contractors in
their employ shall require a permit from the Town of Ocean City.
Public utilities or contractors in their employ (gas, electric, phone CATV) do not require
a permit provided the work in question is related to the installation, maintenance, or
repair of the public utility itself in accordance with the appropriate franchise agreement
and not for improvements or new service to a specific customer.
Pe1mits for closures in complete compliance with this policy may be issued directly by
the City Engineer.
Requests for exceptions to this policy require approval from the Ocean City Engineering
Department, and concurrence by the Mayor and City Council.
General Requirements:
Nothing in this policy is intended to indicate that any person has a right to the use of
streets, alleys, or sidewalks during construction. The use of the City right-of-way should
be considered as a last resort only after the possibility of onsite storage and staging or use
of adjacent properties has been considered and eliminated. Failure to comply with the
requirements of the permit will result in a "stop work order", loss of the permit, traffic
fines or all of the above.
Applicants must possess a current valid Ocean City Building Pennit. Use of the Right-
of-Way shall be confined to the duration of construction. All material within the -right-
of-way shall be removed prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy ..

NFPA 241 within the right-of-way during construction such as fencing, barricades,
overhead protection, flagmen, arrow boards, etc.

Siamese connection. Access from the street to fire hydrants and Siamese connection
shall be maintained at all times per NFPA 241 7.5.8.1 (2000)

Section II. Sustainable Community Baseline Information
Prior Revitalization Investments & Smart Growth:
(a) List and describe any significant State and local smart growth or revitalization related program
investments (for instance, Community Legacy or SC Rehab Tax Credit) that have been invested in
the Area since the launching of Maryland’s Smart Growth initiative and programs in 1997 (including
Housing investment). What impact have these investments made in the community?

Although the Town of Ocean City has discussed several revitalization strategies since the 1970’s it was the
formulation of the Ocean City Development Corporation in 2000 that started the current efforts in the
downtown area. Local government funding has been the impetus to the OCDC for maintaining its
program. The OCDC and Town of Ocean City have utilized a number of State programs to fund its
revitalization projects. Foremost has been the Maryland Community Legacy Program. Other State
programs that have been tapped by the OCDC include the Neighborhood Business Works Program and the
Community Investment Tax Credit Program.

It is worthy to note that OCDC receives local jurisdiction funding annually from Worcester County and the
Town of Ocean City to assist with operating funds and provide seed money for matching grants. The
completed, ongoing and future projects funded by OCDC strive to improve the community and encourage
re-investment. OCDC, in coordination with the Town of Ocean City, throughout its history has planned
for, applied and managed grant and other funding to accomplish these needed projects. However, while
these projects improve the community and raise the tax assessment on the properties, Worcester County
receives an increased benefit without further engagement of resources. This sets up a tax differential where
Worcester County reaps increased financial benefits and has yet to increase their participation in OCDC
projects.

The investments, as a result of these programs and other funded programs have had a tremendous impact
on the downtown area. Often the funds have resulted in significant leveraging ratios by the private sector.
Below is a listing of projects completed by the OCDC and Town of Ocean City since 2000 in the
downtown area (south of 17
th
Street):
• Completed the design standards for the Downtown area. Such standards were approved and
codified by the Mayor and City Council in November 2002.
• Completed the design standards for the Upper Downtown Area (3
rd
to 17
th
Streets). These
standards were approved in 2006.
• Completed a Community Legacy Plan for the Downtown area that has been approved by the Town
of Ocean City and State of Maryland for future grant opportunities.
• 134 façade projects have been completed to date. Through the OCDC façade program, over $4.7
million has been invested into the older buildings of the Downtown area.
• Construction of Somerset Plaza, a semi-pedestrian walkway in 2002. This street is used for
special event activities. Construction costs were $200,000.
• Construction of S. 1
st
Street, into a pedestrian walkway in 2006 at a cost of $225,000.
• Construction of Sunset Park, a linear public park located along S. Division Street and Bay in 2006.
This park is used for special event activities. Construction costs were about $1.3 million.
• The OCDC’s Public Art Program has raised private contributions for 9 art projects in the
Downtown area: White Marlin Sculpture, Ocean City library sculpture (being completed),
Seahawk Sculpture, Dorchester Street wall mural, Caroline Street enlarged postcards, OC Beach
Birds, paver art on west side of Philadelphia Avenue, and utility box painting project with the Art
League of Ocean City, local area high schools and private sponsors. Over $300,000 has been
expended on this program.
• Creation of a historic plaque program. This OCDC program provided bronze plaques to 20 older
buildings to recognize the age and importance of such structures.
• Restoration of the Tarry A While Guest House project at 108 Dorchester Street, a building
constructed in 1897 and now used as first floor office space for the OCDC and upper floor
seasonal rentals.
• Renovation of the building at 110 Somerset Street to provide seasonal housing.
Page 2 of 51
SC Application - FY 2012
DRAFT
• Renovation of two buildings at 105 Dorchester Street to provide seasonal housing.
• A Green Building Initiatives Program to provide energy efficient enhancements to downtown
buildings. To date 18 buildings have been improved using this program. About $240,000 of
private investment has occurred so far.
• The creation of a Business Assistance Program to provide financial assistance to new and
expanding downtown businesses to decrease the upfront costs of such new business starts.
• Other Town of Ocean City capital projects include the construction the tram building for
$200,000, Worcester Street restrooms/ Police Department station for $700,000, and the Boardwalk
improvements for $6 million.


Section II. Sustainable Community Baseline Information

(b) Describe any existing barriers to Smart Growth that may affect your jurisdiction or the proposed
SC Area. For instance, does your area have higher development fees than outer “cornfields”?

There are several barriers to Smart Growth that may affect the Sustainable Community Area; generally the
seasonal nature of activity and that the designated area is the most aged development portion of the Town
of Ocean City jurisdiction. The seasonal nature of activity in and visitors to the Sustainable Community
Area means that year round population varies widely with different levels and categories of needs.

Traffic and Transportation:
The Sustainable Community Area includes many Summer Tourism season destinations, i.e. Amusement
Parks, Boardwalk Commercial Activity, Accommodations, Landmarks, etc., that draw a high demand for
vehicle movement and parking and general pedestrian movements. Smart Growth and Complete Street
principles are not fully incorporated in the existing development pattern. During the season there exists
recurring traffic congestion lower than acceptable levels of service and pedestrian movements are likewise
constrained.

Regulations:
Redevelopment and infill development of the Sustainable Community Area is a primary goal of this Action
Plan. Development proposals in this area typically need to address a wide range of regulatory issues that
can be barriers to redevelopment and infill, such as Flood Zone/ Elevation implications, zoning design and
performance standards, non-conforming land use and structure issues, and simple compatibility issues.
Especially when compared to adjacent non-conforming structures, new redevelopment and infill project
face a burden to avoid exacerbating non-conforming situations. Currently, methods are in place to seek
regulatory relief through variance or special exception processes, however, simple by-right redevelopment
and infill projects would improve the revitalization and investment in the Sustainable Community Area.

B. Community Conditions: Strengths and Weaknesses
(1) Describe the strengths and weaknesses in the proposed Area’s existing built environment. For
example, what is the condition of housing? Are there underutilized historic buildings and cultural
places? What is the condition and availability of community parks and recreational assets? Are there
transportation assets? What is the current condition of community infrastructure such as roads and
lighting?


STRENGTHS:

Community Amenities and Assets
Ocean City today offers visitors and local residents activities that most cities would love to have: clean and
free beaches, popular boardwalk, and quality accommodations. Providing an atmosphere that compliments
the already successful attractions with new and exciting activities and places to see is the next level for the
city to reach.

The most popular amenity in this downtown district is the beach and Boardwalk, both of which extend the
full length of the Sustainable Communities Area district. These assets are the main reason eight million
people visit Ocean City each year, making it one of the largest attractions in the mid-Atlantic region. The
Boardwalk area contains some of the oldest businesses in Ocean City, which continue to provide that
traditional Ocean City experience for generations of families. Such retail businesses include Dolle’s Candy
and Popcorn, Candy Kitchen, Fischer’s Popcorn, Thrasher Fries, Dumser’s Ice Cream, and the Alaska
Stand. The Town of Ocean City spends much time and effort to ensure the Boardwalk and beaches are
well maintained.

Two prime destination points for visitors to Ocean City are the downtown amusements and arcades.
Trimper Amusements and the Pier Rides provide a real excitement and adventure to be experienced in the
southern end of Ocean City. In addition, the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum located at the Pier on the
Boardwalk is a great amenity to add to one’s vacation trip. The Ocean City Lifesaving Station Museum is
a popular stop at the southend of the Boardwalk for local history buffs and families.

The bayside area of downtown also provides attractive views to the water and various water related
activities including fishing, boating, jet ski rentals, parasailing, and several noted restaurants. These
activities and popular restaurants make the bayside a destination point for many visitors and locals.

The downtown area consists of the oldest section of Ocean City. There are several buildings from the
nineteenth century still existing. These are located south of North Division Street. Between North Division
Street and 17
th
Street, particularly along Baltimore Avenue, there are many buildings dating back to the
1920’s and 1930’s and in good condition.

The 3
rd
/4
th
Street ball fields provide a large open space for recreation uses. In addition, Sunset Park,
located at South Division Street and the Bay provide another special event forum in addition to a passive
recreational area. Two public facilities that are important traffic generators for downtown; City Hall at
Baltimore Avenue and 3
rd
Street and the U.S. Post Office at Philadelphia Avenue and 5
th
Street. The
primary fire station serving the southern end of Ocean City is located at Philadelphia Avenue and 15
th

Street, although a smaller facility is located on Dorchester Street. Another City facility includes a water
treatment plant along St. Louis and 14
th
Street. The Ocean City Beach Patrol has its main office on
Dorchester Street, too. The Ocean City Police Department has two of its facilities in the downtown area –
Boardwalk at Worcester Street and on Dorchester Street.

A primary asset to downtown Ocean City is the mass transit system. The South Division Street bus facility
serves as the southern terminus of the extensive Ocean City bus system and is an important source of
transportation for millions of visitors, locals, and employees during the summer months. A private trolley
system with its southern terminus at Somerset Street in downtown Ocean City provides a smaller and
Page 4 of 51
SC Application - FY 2012
DRAFT
attractive means of transport for many other visitors. In addition, the Boardwalk tram runs from South 1
st

Street to 27
th
Street provides another fun way to get around Ocean City.

The Town of Ocean City spends substantial funds to enhance and maintain their infrastructure. As a tourist
destination serving millions of visitors each year such infrastructure must be in excellent working
condition. Such infrastructure includes streets, sewer, water, drainage and lighting.

Another defining amenity to this area is the system of alleyways. These interior alleys cover most of the
district above N. Division Street and provide a very good method of limited travel as well as screening of
vehicle deliveries and trash pickup. Whenever possible, these alleyways should be expanded and
sometimes improved. They also represent an opportunity to use green building techniques as applied in
other areas of the country.

Downtown Ocean City has a number of organizations interested in the area. A group, called the Partners
was created to improve networking and coordinating of various issues, particularly related to business and
economic development. The Partners Group consists of the following organizations: Ocean City
Development Corporation, Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, Hotel Motel Restaurant Association,
Downtown Association, and the Economic Development Committee. These groups meet as needed to
address specific issues several times. The OCDC has requested previous support from Partner members in
terms of its downtown design standards and requests for grant assistance.

WEAKNESSES:

The downtown district is still in a transitional stage of revitalization. While there has been some previous
new construction there has been substantial renovation. However, there are also areas that are still are in
need of redevelopment. A number of buildings are in fair to poor condition. Several are examples of
“demolition by neglect” buildings.

Historic buildings - This area does not contain a historic district as many of the older buildings have been
either modified or demolished. There are a handful of individual buildings that may qualify for this historic
status; however, the many of these owners tend not to be interested in pursuing this designation. The only
designated historic structure in Ocean City is the St. Paul’s By-The-Sea Episcopal Church located at
Baltimore Avenue and 3
rd
Street.

Short business season – Ocean City as a tourist destination has a relatively short business season. Although
the business season has been lengthened with other activities most businesses still close during the off-
seasons. This seasonal nature of employment provides challenges for many employees and year round
residents.

Lack of Downtown Attractions - Other than the beach, the boardwalk is Ocean City’s number one
destination. The downtown core offers very little else in support of the boardwalk and beach attractions. It
was noted by the International Waterfront Group (IWG) 1999 report the Downtown Ocean City has
become a parking lot and circulation mode of transportation for the boardwalk and beach. No other anchor
exists to attract visitors to the downtown core especially during the off peak season.

Traffic Congestion - Congested downtown interior roadways discourage pedestrian interaction with
downtown core businesses. People want to “get away” from vehicular traffic and go to the beach or
boardwalk.

City Codes – As noted by the IWG report that many business owners feel that the city has not done enough
to enforce codes that relate to the upkeep of structures. Because of this, there is unwillingness by business
owners to invest capital into facility improvements. There is a lack of confidence from prospective
investors because of the uncertainty in knowing what kind of neighbor will exist. However, many others
feel that the existing codes are too restrictive and should be relaxed to encourage a more “pro” business
climate. Some have suggested fewer regulations, citing that private sector investment will flow in areas
“where there exists little resistance.”

In 1999, IWG found many local residents were skeptical that any aggressive downtown initiative would not
have the necessary political and economic support needed to realize the area’s full potential. International
Waterfront Group (IWG) was retained in 1999 by the Town of Ocean City to develop a comprehensive
master plan for Ocean City’s downtown area which recognized the importance of the boardwalk and bay
front and to formulate a plan that motivated pedestrian interaction between these anchors. Additional
projects have been added to this master plan. The 1999 project boundaries were defined between 4thStreet
to the north, the inlet to the south, boardwalk to the east, and the bay to the west. In addition to circulation
issues, private sector investment issues, particularly how to encourage private sector investment in the
downtown core were considered. However, over the past few years these boundaries were expanded to 17
th

Street, which this additional area often referred to as the upper downtown area.

In 1999 many local residents made it well known to the IWG team that cynicism was in abundance
considering the number of planning studies that have been completed through the years. IWG believed this
local skepticism could be overcome with a series of small accomplishments, for which the Ocean City
Development Corporation, a nonprofit organization set up in 2000, has been implementing. As mentioned
in the IWG report, there were several phases necessary to bring about revitalization activities to downtown
Ocean city. It was noted that each phase will be challenging, however, as each phase is accomplished, a
healthier vibrant downtown core will be achieved. The challenge given was to tie the recommended
boardwalk improvements to the rest of the downtown core area and continue these concepts to the bay front
district thus creating a transition zone concept and make specific recommendations towards implementing a
plan of action. A major theme was to improve and bring about a series of capital projects that would spur
private investment. This Plan of Action has been generally followed by the Ocean City Development
Corporation in its pursuit of a revitalized downtown Ocean City.

(2) Describe the Area’s land use/zoning make-up (residential, commercial, industrial, and mixed-
use). Is the current land use or zoning conducive to revitalization investment?

The SC area has some limited recreational overlays allowing for public use. The Business zoning along the
boardwalk and the Downtown Mixed Use zoning elsewhere in the lower downtown area are adequate to
permit future expansion of business uses. Marinas along the bayside have existed for decades. The town
encourages their expansion and renovation to accommodate larger numbers of vessels as the town’s
populace increases.
Residential zoning has many older homes and apartments that could be improved upon or replaced with
new dwellings. We are seeing demolition occur more often as dwellings age. Original structures were not
built to code and are unsafe and uncomfortable due to the lack of insulation and lower quality components.
The town encourages commercial and residential mixed use projects to help bring needed services into the
SC area. Year-round commercial services are lacking in the SC area.
Residential zoning replaces Business zoning at the northern end of the SC area, along the boardwalk. Local
Commercial zoning replaces Residential zoning on Philadelphia Avenue as this road becomes wider
(known as Coastal Highway) at 15
th
Street in the Upper Downtown SC area. This is significant in that small
businesses offering the services that visitors need become more common. As trends change, so too do the
types of businesses that locate along Coastal Highway.
Our viewpoint is that the proposed Sustainable Community area, as a whole, can be revitalized with enough
participation from local developers, property owners, and businesses. The infrastructure improvements, as
explained later in this application, have been completed to allow for future redevelopment efforts. The task
at hand is finding ways to enhance and create interesting places within the older downtown core, within the
SC area. Interesting places serve as the magnetic mediumthrough which individuals, residents, and visitors
are motivated and interact within commercial areas or their communities. Identifying the strengths of the
SC area and cultivating those strengths is the first step.

Section II. Sustainable Community Baseline Information

3) Describe strengths and weaknesses in basic features of community quality-of-life. For instance, is
crime an issue for this SC Area? What is the condition and quality of educational choices available to
the community? Are artistic, cultural, or community resources, events or facilities within or
accessible to residents in the proposed SC Area?

Strengths
Efforts to improve the appearance of utilities and building facades have been successful. Community pride
is rising. Consistent code enforcement ensures that restrictions are followed. A strong police presence
shows how serious the town feels about providing a safe community.
The Ocean City Art League promotes Art and culture with its many members and volunteers. The town has
many events that are either free or at low cost where local art is sold, charitable activities are offered,
classes are taught, and a library where art lovers can appreciate and admire crafts and works created in this
area. The Art League occupies a new facility on 94
th
Street that houses a gallery, a pottery studio,
classrooms, an art library, and five working artist’s studios. This year marks the 50
th
year for the Ocean
City Center for the Arts.
The town’s rich history is preserved in the Life Saving Museum at the inlet parking lot. Visitors can learn
about the “surfmen” who rescued stranded fishermen from the ocean.
Worcester County, Maryland has a branch of the county library on 100
th
Street where anyone is free to
explore its many resources.
Our Convention Center is host to many major attractions. A current expansion of the facility promises to
attract even larger entertainers and shows to provide entertainment for our visitors and residents, alike.
An annual air show and skateboarding event takes place each summer on the beach which attracts those
seeking a thrill in aerial aerobatics and the newest tricks and products on the market for biking and
skateboarding.
Our mass transit system transports millions of visitors each summer to destinations within town, thereby
decreasing the number of personal vehicles on the roads. Similarly, the alleyways permit limited movement
as a alternative route to congested roads.

Weaknesses
As with most places, there exists some crime within the SC area due to its small, compacted size and the
older neighborhoods where lower rents prevail. The town’s police force handles the small amount of petty
crimes in this area.
The lack of a school in Ocean City means school-age students are bused to schools in West Ocean City and
Berlin, Maryland. Worcester County provides the bus service needed for this transfer.
Fragmented land ownership presents challenges when considering redevelopment projects in the interior.
Conversely, there are opportunities for beneficial, small-scale redevelopment.
Congested downtown interior roadways discourage pedestrian interaction with downtown core businesses.
A “main attraction” or anchor business is being sought to occupy a location within the SC area. The Ocean
City beach and boardwalk are our main attractions. Off the boardwalk, though, the town needs an attraction
on the bayside or western side of the island. A bayside boardwalk connected to the
Oceanside boardwalk has been one priority for several years. Acquiring or encouraging contiguous land to
build such a project has stifled efforts, to date.
Additional employee housing is needed to house the influx of foreign workers in the summer months.

C. Natural Resources and Environmental Impact: Strengths and Weaknesses

(1) Describe the strengths and weaknesses of the community’s “natural environment.” in or near the
Sustainable Community Area. What is the current condition of key natural resources - lands, air,
water, watersheds, tree canopy, other? If the community is located in a coastal zone, what risks
might the community be subject to associated with climate induced sea level rise?

Land: The SC area is completely developed in an ultra-urban environment. Property use is in a mixture of
services and commercial uses, single and multi-family residential, hotel and motel, marinas, parking lots,
public works facilities, restaurants, and amusement parks. Each type of land use has its own specific impact
on the environment. A pollution prevention plan needs to be developed for each of these types of uses.
Air: The air quality of Ocean City is relatively good. On average, the air quality index is below 50. The air
quality is generally in the good range from September through May with a few days in the moderate range.
During the summer months (J une, July, August) a majority of days are in the Moderate range and
occasional days that are unhealthy for those with sensitivities. The SC area on Delmarva is located east of
major industrial centers, where deposition or fall-out of pollution originates. There are also local sources of
pollution that contribute to our air quality. Motor vehicle exhausts, engine fumes from jet skis, scooters,
boats, gas pumps, and ammonia from local poultry farms are all sources originating within short distances
of the SC area.
Water – Nutrient deposition is a concern for water quality when it runs off into the Coastal Bays. Natural
concentration of nitrogen from power plants , vehicles, and industry contribute up to 30% of the nitrogen
inputs. The Coastal Bay water is listed on the 303-d list for being impaired by nutrients.
Stormwater is a non-point source of pollutant for the Coastal Bays. Nutrients come from a variety of
sources including the atmosphere, fertilizers, pesticides, pet waste, and groundwater. Bacteria, trash-gross
solids, hydrocarbons, and heavy metals are a local concern. Tourism is our primary industry. Keeping our
waters clean and productive is essential to maintaining our economy.
Drinking water is obtained from the underground aquifers of which the town uses 25 wells to extract from.
This ensures that there is equal distribution from the aquifers to avoid salt water intrusion. The town
maintains adequate capacity for our peak seasonal population.
Watersheds: The Coastal Bays Watershed is made up of 4 bays with approximately 175 square miles of
drainage area. Ocean City has less than 2.5 square miles of land area draining to the Sinepuxent, Isle of
Wight, and Assawoman Bays. We are almost completely developed with nearly all new construction
coming in the form of redevelopment. Drainage from the town is through a storm drain system or sheet
flow. The ocean beach is protected from high bacteria resulting from our drainage to the western bays.
Tree Canopy:The ultra-urban environment is counter-productive to the tree canopy. We have a Critical
Area ordinance that requires that redevelopment must provide 15% plantable area. This is over-ridden by
grandfathering and non-conformity in the zoning code. They are required to pay a fee-in-lieu to offset the
requirement. This money collected must be spent on work within the SC area. There are also mini grant
programs to offer private property owners plant materials for BayScape gardens or rain gardens. Street
trees were planted while utilities were being placed underground. Some vacant spaces where trees have
died should be filled using the fee-in-lieu money.
Sea Level Rise: The effects of global warming, sea level rise, and land subsidence over the next century
will potentially exacerbate the severity of coastal storms and flooding. Sea level has risen about one foot in
the past century. Another rise of 2-3 feet is expected for the coming century. There will be more shoreline
erosion and loss of coastal wetlands, if this occurs. The town is considering measures to reduce the effects
which include raising the level of streets, improving bulkheads, and constructing buildings at higher
elevations. Coastal storm surge from hurricanes could become higher and more intense rainfall could raise
the potential from flooding from land runoff. An acceleration of sea level rise may increase the cost of
current shore protection practices.

Section II. Sustainable Community Baseline Information

(2) Describe the strenths and weaknesses of any current efforts to reduce the community’s “carbon
footprint” or impact on the environment. Is recycling (commercial or residential) available to
minimize waste? Are there current efforts to encourage the purchase and availability of fresh local
food and other local products and services to the community? Describe any current energy or water
conservation efforts that may be underway. If the community has not implemented one of the above
initiatives, has the community identified a need or interest to pursue these or other efforts to reduce
environmental impact, for instance through the new Sustainable Maryland Certified initiative?

Recycling: The town has a bulk collection program where we recycle large appliances to keep them from
entering the waste system. During construction or demolition projects, we recycle the piping. The town
ships its waste to a company in Pennsylvania for recycling. It becomes an alternative fuel source for
creating electricity.
Local foods:The town has a farmer’s market located outside the SC area. Efforts should seek another
market within the SC area where foot traffic is heavy and visitors would benefit by not having to travel
across the bridge to buy food.
Energy and water conservation: The town requires low flow fixtures on all redevelopment projects. We
also enforce the International Energy Conservation Code to have more insulation, better windows, and
more efficient HVAC.
As far as conservation efforts within the SC area, the town enforces the energy conservation code, the new
(IECC) International Energy Conservation Code. Some of the residential energy efficiency codes that
we are now inspecting are: A) All hot water circulation systems shall be insulated with a readily
accessible manual switch to turn off the hot water circulation pump when not in use, (B) All hot water
pipes larger then 3/4 inch shall be insulated, (C) All piping from water heaters to the kitchen sink outlet,
(D) Hot water lines to bathrooms and utility rooms shall be insulated per Table R403.4.2 minimum thermal
resistance (R-Value) of R-3. The Maryland State Plumbing Code requires low flow plumbing fixtures
including toilets, faucet aerators and shower heads. All new or replacement insulation of toilets use no
more than 1.6 gallons per flush compared with about 3.5 gallons of water used with older standard toilets.
Low flow shower heads use about 2.5 gallons of water per minute compared to between 4 and 5 gallons per
minute used by conventional heads and low -flow faucets aerators can cut water usage of faucets by as
much as 40% from 4 gallons per minute to 2.5.
Buildings will be 15% more energy efficient than the 2009 IECC. Increased fenestration requirements
mean better windows, increased insulation values for walls, floors, ceilings & roofs improve conservation
measures. There are more efficient mechanical system checks. There are many other more stringent
energy efficiency requirements both residential & commercial.

Section II. Sustainable Community Baseline Information

(3) Describe the strengths and weaknesses of the jurisdiction’s current stormwater management
practices and how these may affect the proposed SC Area. Is redevelopment and retrofitting of
infrastructure an issue or opportunity in this SC Area? Stormwater runoff is a significant source of
pollution to Maryland’s streams and the Chesapeake Bay. Buildings constructed before 1985 have
little or no stormwater controls, and development between 1985 and 2010 have some controls.
Updated stormwater regulations passed by Maryland’s General Assembly in 2010 require that
development and redevelopment projects utilize stringent stormwater controls. Sustainable
Community Areas may have opportunities for redevelopment practices that can reduce stormwater
flows.

The Town of Ocean City has adopted the State’s stormwater ordinance which gives a waiver for quantity
control to projects that discharge directly into tidal waters. Since the town is surrounded by tidal waters, the
water quantity requirements are not applicable. On redevelopment projects, builders must meet water
quality requirements.This requirement is the reduction of impervious surface by 50% or treating 50% of the
existing imperviousness and 100% of the increased imperviousness. The grandfathering and non-
conformity allowed by the zoning code limits areas where environmentally sensitive designs can be
performed. There are many lots that have no setbacks on them, allowing for building to the property line.
The Ocean City Development Corporation has guidelines to maintain the heritage of the Historical nautical
marine atmosphere. They request wider porches and sidewalks that encroach on the landscaped areas.
Landscaping can be used as both a bio-retention area for infiltration and for filtering purposes. Adding
more landscaping can help meet the reduction of impervious surfaces.
Opportunities for alternative paving surfaces are applicable. The SC area should require more alternative
surfaces for all parking. Surface storage of stormwater and alternative surfaces are the only feasible options
for stormwater treatment.
The groundwater in the SC area is very high, usually, within 2 feet of the surface. The tidal influence backs
up the storm drains and floods the streets at spring tides and during Northeaster events. A fee-in-lieu policy
has been used but is not a standard operating procedure. Storm drain and outfall retrofits could use the
funds collected. Street cleaning is a viable BMP and is currently being done by the Department of Public
Works. As a pilot project, we have installed catch basin inserts to collect trash, debris, oil, and other loose
substances. So far, the effort has been successful. We need a long-term maintenance agreement before we
can expand on this effort any further.

D. Economic Conditions & Access to Opportunity: Strengths and Weaknesses

(1) Describe the jurisdiction’s current economic strengths and weaknesses. For example, are there
distinct economic drivers in the area or region that will affect access to job opportunities and the
progress of the SC Plan? What are the main barriers to the Area’s economic competitiveness? What
is the current level of broadband access available to serve residents, businesses and public facilities?
What efforts are currently in place to increase worker skills and employment? Describe trends in
employment rates and business formation.

Strengths

Business Tenure - The downtown area of Ocean City contains a number of businesses that have been in
Ocean City for a long time. For example, the Trimper Amusement rides have been in Ocean City over 100
years. Dolle’s Candy celebrated its 100
th
anniversary as an Ocean City business in 2011. The Atlantic
Hotel was first built in 1875, destroyed by fire in 1924 and rebuilt by one of the original families, the
Purnell’s who still manage the property today. The Alaska Stand eatery, owned by the Givarz family,
celebrates its 80
th
birthday in 2013. These are just several of the many businesses that are still owned and
managed by the same families in Ocean City. It is this consistency of name and quality of service that has
served the generations of tourists who continue to visit these same businesses in the downtown district.

Boardwalk as an economic engine - For generations the Ocean City Boardwalk has been as important an
attraction for visitors to Ocean City as the beach. This lively and well maintained public boardwalk
extends 2.7 miles in length, is probably one of the best pedestrian experiences one will find. And it may be
one of the most successful pedestrian malls in America! There are a multitude of businesses; most of them
are small businesses, found along the Boardwalk. The primary commercial district along the Boardwalk is
generally south of 15
th
Street and is located in the proposed Sustainable Communities district. The section
north of 15
th
Street is commonly referred to as Hotel/Motel Row in Ocean City.

Tourism as a stable economic source – Tourism is the sole industry of Ocean City. This industry has
served Ocean City well over the past 100 years and is expected to be the primary industry for many years to
come. It has been stated that tourism to Ocean City is almost “recession proof.” In poor economic times
residents of the Mid-Atlantic States may find a vacation to Ocean City less expensive due to its close
proximity. In good economic times such residents may find a vacation of more than one week as possible
to Ocean City.

Oldest section of Ocean City – Downtown Ocean City is the proposed location for the Sustainable
Communities Area. The area is the oldest section of Ocean City and is the traditional downtown district for
the island. It contains a variety of buildings that have been adapted for new uses.

Maryland Main Street Program and access to State funding programs – In April 2012 Ocean City was
named one of Maryland’s newest Main Street Maryland Communities. With this new designation as well
as prior excellent dealings with the State of Maryland, the Town and OCDC intend to apply for future State
funds.

Investment in public infrastructure–The Town of Ocean City has invested heavily into its public
infrastructure. Due to the seasonal nature of Ocean City, the town’s infrastructure must handle much more
than its 8,000 year round residential base. On peak weekends in the summer, the town’s population will
exceed 300,000. This drastic population change from off-season to in-season may be one of the biggest
changes found in the United States. And each year the Town is prepared for such change and demands on
its infrastructure.

Weaknesses

Short tourism season – The prime Ocean City season runs only during the summer season. In fact as the
school season starts in August for most of Maryland and surrounding states, the number of peak weeks has
diminished to the month of J uly and first 2 weeks of August. The tourists continue to travel to Ocean City
for weekends before and after these prime weeks. However, this seasonal nature of Ocean City tourism can
make for a very challenging economic environment. Such seasons are very dependent on weather.

Small year round resident population base – The small year round population base of Ocean City and the
large number of tourists coming to Ocean City makes for a challenging task in terms of providing the
number of employees necessary to accommodate the tourism industry. The Town of Ocean City is
dependent on the labor supply of other areas of the mid-Atlantic region and foreign worker labor. It is
estimated that 3,000 foreign workers travel to Ocean City each summer to provide this labor. There are
many American residents also traveling and living in Ocean City each summer to meet the tourism
demands. In addition to this high seasonal demand the opposite occurs in the off-season. The small
population base makes it difficult to support local small businesses in Ocean City. The nature of such
tourism businesses such as retail and restaurant uses also results in many lower wage positions being
needed. Such a low wage base makes it difficult for families to live in Ocean City, particularly when work
is very limited in the off-season months to support a family.

Lack of business variety and competition from outside Ocean City–The tourism base makes for a limited
type of business in Ocean City. Often the chain stores locating in west Ocean City are providing many of
the goods and merchandise found in more traditional downtown areas. The bulk of Ocean City stores are
aimed at the tourism market and not the year round market.

Distinct Economic Drivers:

It is expected that tourism will remain the primary industry for the Town of Ocean City and its Sustainable
Communities Area in the downtown district. A number of outside influences, such as weather and the
labor market, will affect the industry. Broadband access is not yet available in Ocean City but has been
discussed as a future item on the eastern shore of Maryland.

In terms of work increasing skills and employment, there are a number of activities currently in place.
There are a number of training facilities in the eastern shore that have partnered with Ocean City
businesses. For example, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and the local Wor-Wic Community
College each have a hotel management courses and culinary schools well suited to address the need for
skilled workers in Ocean City hotels and restaurants. Salisbury University is only 30 miles from Ocean
City and many if its students and graduates find work in Ocean City. The Ocean City Chamber of
Commerce holds its spring Job Fair which has become a major hiring source for local Ocean City
businesses.

Ocean City has historically had very high unemployment rates in the winter seasons, but such rates improve
with the summer tourism season. The Ocean City economy has expanded over the past years as the
shoulder season has grown. Much of this growth in the shoulder seasons is a result of the OC Convention
Center business and large increase in the area’s golf industry. It is expected the stronger should season
business to expand which will help reduce the high level of unemployment in the off-season periods.

(2) Describe the jurisdiction’s housing market and access to affordable workforce housing. What are
the trends in residential construction (rental and homeownership), homeownership rate, foreclosure
rate and, property values. Describe how and whether your jurisdiction’s prevailing housing costs -
both homeownership and rental - are affordable to households below 120% AMI, 80% AMI and
50% AMI. What efforts are in place currently to house individuals, families and the disabled at or
below the AMI levels described above?

Ocean City has a variety of housing types such as single family, townhouse, condominium, and even
manufactured housing. Such housing caters to various income levels. There have been several Ocean City
employers who have realized the need to find affordable housing for their employees and have either
constructed such housing or purchased housing.
Over the past few years the housing market has been depressed and has resulted in little new construction.
However, at the same time there has been substantial building renovation going on – both exterior and
interior improvements. The downtown area contains a concentration of housing for the thousands of
foreign workers and American workers who work for the summer season. This area has some of the oldest
residential units.
In many municipalities in Maryland, the downtown areas often contain upper floors that are either vacant or
used for storage. In Ocean City the upper floors are often used as seasonal housing – an important need for
the seasonal workers as well as a valuable income source for the property owners. A number of residential
buildings that used to cater to weekly visitors have been converted into housing for seasonal workers.
As the economy strengthens it is expected that new development will occur more often. The housing
absorption rate and housing prices have stabilized. The recent recession did result in less construction
activity, lower property values, and more foreclosures. However, there were also some good elements that
came from this slower economy. In many sections of the downtown area homeowners did invest funding
in the renovation of their older structures. The OCDC has assisted over 130 property owners in renovating
their buildings. Almost five million dollars has been invested into such structures over the past 10 years,
but most of it in the past 4 years. The lower property values and low interest rates have resulted in more
affordable housing opportunities.
Some examples of the increased housing include the four building the OCDC manages for the Town of
Ocean City’s seasonal workers. To date 43 beds are provided by the OCDC. Another example was the
unfinished condominium project at 2
nd
Street and St. Louis Avenue. Due to the poor condo market this 11
unit project sat idle for two years. A new owner purchased the units via auction and invested the necessary
funds resulting in a new 11 unit housing project that caters to seasonal workers. There are 120 seasonal
workers living at the facility.
Pertaining to disabled households, new construction standards in Ocean City require such housing to
accommodate disabled households. Whereas the older buildings cannot accommodate such individuals,
new housing often contains elevators and other features to increase their mobility. In addition, the Town of
Ocean City operates a transit van to transport such individuals to various needs.
It is expected that Ocean City will continue to see a blend of housing types.

(3) Describe the SC Area’s demographic trends (with respect to age, race, household size, household
income, educational attainment, or other relevant factors).

The SC area is a small, distinct district that does not follow established Census Bureau boundaries. The
area contains about 255 acres of land or about .4 square miles. According to the Maryland Department of
Planning, there were 1,199 year round residents counted during the 2010 census in the SC area.

Age: Of the approximately 1,199 residents in the SC area, 85% are over 21 years of age. The average age
is 46 years. Females comprise about 46% of the Sc area population.
Race: Whites are 92% of the SC area. Blacks are 3%. Asians are 2.7%.
Households: There were 591 households in 2011. That number is projected to be 611 by 2016. There are
253 family households and 338 non-family households. The estimated average household income was
$63,782 in 2011. The 2011 estimated household size was 1.85 persons. There were 484 one and two person
households in 2011 in the SC area. There were 16 households with 5-7 persons each.
Education: Of the 904 people with education in the SC area, 40% had earned a high school diploma or
less. Those with college degrees totaled over 37%.
Income: Of the 591 people who reported incomes, about 13% earned less than $15,000 per year. Those
earning less than $100,000 totaled 83%. Those earning $200,000 or more were 3.39% of the total SC area.
There were 11 families living below the poverty level in 2011. Seven of those families had children.
Employment: In 2011, civilian employed workers totaled 425 of the 603 people age 16 or over who were
eligible to work. Those not in the labor force was 314 of the total 603. The highest employment types were
sales (95 of 603), management (92 of 603), and food preparation and serving (70 of 603).

The above information explains the 2010 Census data; however, demographic issues relating to the
Sustainable Community Area have much more impact in regards to the seasonal influx of weekly and daily
tourists visiting the area. Ocean City becomes one of the most densely populated communities in the world
during its peak season from Memorial Day to Labor Day holidays. An average peak season weekend
experiences approximately 250,000 people enjoying the entire community and its amenities; however,
adjusted to the 0.4 square miles of the Sustainable Community Area, that equates to approximately 56,600
+/- people per square mile living in the community. High peak events or circumstances such as the 4
th
of
J uly holiday have seen that number rise to 350,000 people (354,000 in 2011 and 332,000 in 2012) equating
to between 75,000 and 80,000 people per square mile. Obviously, the Sustainable Community Area
experiences quite a seasonal shift in the population and the level of service needed to support that
population. Compare this influx of population to popular resort communities such as Vail, Colorado (999
people per square mile) and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina (586 people per square mile). Perhaps a
better comparison is to well known world-class cities. Los Angeles, California has a density of 8,092
people per square mile; Beijing, China has a density of 3,200 people per square mile.

B.Organizational Experience:

Describe the Applicant organization’s past experience in administering revitalization plans and
projects. Describe the roles of the members of the Sustainable Communities Workgroup, including
their experience in implementing revitalization initiatives. What are the strengths and challenges of
the capacity of these groups with respect to implementation of the SC Plan?

The Ocean City Development Corporation (OCDC), established by the Town of Ocean City in 2000, will
serve as the Work Group to implement the Sustainable Communities Plan. The OCDC has established a
Work Group Planning Committee to formulate this Sustainable Communities Plan. The OCDC has been
implementing its approved Community Legacy Plan since 2001. The OCDC Executive Director will
oversee this project. He has been working with the OCDC nearly since its creation in 2000. Financial
matters and specific facade applications are approved by the OCDC Board of Directors. The OCDC Board
consists of 15 volunteers who meet monthly. The OCDC also employs a part-time administrative assistant
and bookkeeper to assist the Executive Director with operational items. The OCDC has an excellent
working relationship with City staff to process these facade projects. The OCDC Executive Director will
be responsible for submitting all quarterly reports and payment requests for this project. He has been
responsible for these same tasks on all other CL funded projects.

The Town of Ocean City has been an active participant with the OCDC in implementing many of the
downtown projects, particularly the capital improvement projects. These include the development of
Sunset Park, S. 1 Street, Somerset Plaza, and a number of street improvement projects. The Town is also
active in the Boardwalk improvements and beach maintenance, both of which are extremely important
elements in the revitalization of downtown Ocean City.

C. Public Input:

How did residents and other stakeholders in the community provide input to Action Plan described
below in Section IV?

The Work Group Planning Committee reviewed the draft Sustainable Community Application and Action
Plan to establish the public review document.

The Town of Ocean City and Ocean City Development Corporation staff conducted a public meeting on
April 24, 2013 to provide an overview of the then proposed Action Plan and received input to incorporate
in the adopted Action Plan. This public meeting was advertised on the Town’s website, local access TV
channel, and thru a press release reported by local newspaper and TV media.

Subsequent to the public meeting; the Work Group Planning Committee reviewed and recommended
approval of the Action Plan to the Ocean City Planning Commission. The Planning Commission in turn
reviewed and recommended that the Town of Ocean City Mayor & City Council approve the Action Plan
via resolution.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

A. Supporting existing communities & reducing environmental impacts.

(1) A community’s approach to Smart Growth generally includes two inter-related areas of focus:
encouraging reinvestment and growth in existing communities; and, discouraging growth that
degrades natural resources, and farms and rural landscapes. Broadly describe your jurisdiction’s
Smart Growth approach and any significant accomplishments made over the last decade or so.

The Town of Ocean City has been a strong follower of Smart Growth in both its policies and practices.
The OCDC recognizes the importance of Smart Growth in its efforts to redevelop the downtown area, too.
All of the OCDC’s recommended projects in its redevelopment plans promote Smart Growth standards in
various ways. Some of the practices of the Town that promote Smart Growth are listed below:

Mass Transit
The Town of Ocean City has actively promoted its mass transit system, which now carries 4 million
passengers per year. The Town only charges $3 per day for unlimited bus use. The Town operates over 60
buses and plans to expand this service even more. The Town’s bus system has evolved in a major means of
transportation for residents, tourists, and employees throughout Ocean City.

Zoning codes
In terms of zoning, the Town of Ocean City has several items that promote Smart Growth Initiatives. First,
the Town has a transfer of development rights program that directs development from an environmentally
sensitive area (the Atlantic Ocean beach) to areas designated in the Town’s Comprehensive Plan as its
highest density areas. Secondly, the Town encourages mixed-use development by allowing shared parking
by complementary uses. The Town codes also encourage on-site employee housing by not counting such
units against a property’s density limits and reducing parking requirements. Thirdly, the Town working
with the OCDC has approved design standards for the downtown area of the City and is familiar with
improving the character and appearance of new development. This reflects the traditional development
patterns downtown and makes the buildings more pedestrian friendly. Fourthly, the Town’s
Comprehensive Plan reflects the Smart Growth Visions as stated in the Maryland Economic Growth,
Resource Protection and Planning Act of 1992, and includes all appropriate elements required by the
State’s Planning Act.

Redevelopment
The Town of Ocean City has continued to support the OCDC in its efforts to revitalize the downtown area
of Ocean City. Besides co-sponsoring several grant applications for redevelopment with the OCDC, the
Town has also established the Inlet Parking Lot Fund that sets aside a specific amount of funds from the
Inlet Parking lot for revitalization projects, including land acquisition.
In regards to the Maryland Rehabilitation Code, the Town was involved with its development through its
Chief Building Official who served on the advisory committee that developed the code. The Town has
adopted this code, which is an important tool for assisting older buildings in renovation.
The Town facilitated the establishment of the OCDC and has provided funding for its redevelopment
efforts since its creation in 2000. The Town also received the Maryland Smart Growth Award in 2000 for
the redevelopment of Baltimore Avenue from 15
th
Street to 33
rd
Street. These improvements encouraged
private sector development in the area.
To date the OCDC has received several redevelopment awards for its many projects. Such project awards
include the OCDC Façade Program; South 1
st
Street Redevelopment; Sunset Park design and project; St.
Louis Avenue Revitalization; and, the OCDC marketing video.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(2) Describe any major investments in community infrastructure -water, stormwater, sewer,
sidewalk, lighting, etc. -- that must be undertaken in order to improve the readiness or
competitiveness of the proposed SC Area for private investment and compliance (if applicable) with
TMDL regulations. Addressing the stormwater during redevelopment can reduce the pollution
entering our streams and contribution to the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay. Investments in
infrastructure, generally, can be an important catalyst for new private investment in the community.


New 8-inch underground water lines were installed under Baltimore Avenue in 1988 from North Division
Street to 9
th
Street, to provide excellent water pressure. In 1991, the town ran a new 8” waste water main
from the inlet to South 2
nd
Street, up to North Division Street. in 1994, the town ran a new 8’ water main up
Baltimore Avenue from 9
th
Street to 15
th
Street. To improve heavy traffic volumes during summer months,
the town has paved local streets, placed all overhead utilities underground, and replaced all sidewalks with
wider ones.

In 1995, Baltimore Avenue from 9
th
Street to 15
th
Street was repaved. New storm drains and sidewalks
were installed. In 1996, St. Louis Avenue from Caroline Street to Somerset Street, within the SC area, had
new water mains, new underground utilities, new storm drains, new sidewalks, and the street was paved. I
1997, we rebuilt the infrastructure on St. Louis Avenue south of the Route 50 bridge, including all side
streets from the bay to Philadelphia Avenue. In 2004, from North Division Street to South 1
st
Street, work
was performed on Philadelphia Avenue that included new underground utilities, new water mains, new
sewer mains, new sidewalks, and the street was paved.

Presently, we are rebuilding St. Louis Avenue, in phases, from 17
th
Street to North Division Street. A new
8” water main is being installed for the full length of St. Louis Avenue to improve water capacity to all of
the SC downtown area. This new line, together with a 12” main pipe running down Philadelphia Avenue
from 10
th
Street to the Worcester Street lot, will provide sufficient water supply to the entire downtown
area.

The SC area sidewalks that are 8 feet wide are only a small proportion of the total sidewalks. This would be
found in the area of South 1
st
Street to North Division Street. There is a pedestrian study done earlier that
mentions the widening of all east to west sidewalks for better pedestrian flow at a future time. As streets are
rebuilt, their sidewalks will be widened to 8 feet at that time.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(3) Describe policies, initiatives or projects that the community will undertake or expand in order to
reduce the SC Area’s impact on the environment. Examples include but are not limited to:
conservation or management of stormwater through retrofitting of streets and by-ways (Green
Streets, rain gardens, etc.); retrofitting of facilities and homes for energy conservation;
implementation of “green” building codes and mixed-use zoning; recycling of waste; clean-ups of
watersheds; and, encouragement of “Buy Local” approaches that benefit local suppliers and food
producers. A comprehensive menu of such actions may be found through the nonprofit Sustainable
Maryland Certified initiative.

The Town of Ocean City is not classified as a NPDES Phase II community, meaning we are not required to
file an NOI to be included in the national permit. We are proactive in addressing six measures. These
include public education, public involvement, illicit discharge detection, construction site and post
construction site runoff and pollution prevention. We have developed a Pollution Prevention and Habitat
Enhancement Plan for the SC area. The plan lists the target audiences, common pollutants and their
sources, and suggests the best management practices that can be used for various land uses. The town has
proposed some projects to remove gross solids and trash from the storm drainage system, mini grants for
BayScape and rain gardens, rain barrels, and storm water retrofit cost share program. We will be doing a
water quality audit on single family homeowners and give them recommendations on ways they can reduce
the impact they have on the environment.

Littering enforcement will slow the discarding of waste by visitors. Our streets and the boardwalk are swept
manually and mechanically each day during the summer season. The beach is also cleaned daily with
specially-designed machinery. Catch basin inserts will lessen the waste entering local drains. Trees and
shrubs obtained through the TreeMendous program will be planted on public lands to help clean the air and
provide needed shade.

The State is going to establish a TMDL for the coastal bay and will be assigning a load allocation to the
non-point source runoff. This should be happening within the year. The town has developed a database and
a GIS data layer for all stormwater management systems installed in the town. This GIS layer has the
drainage area to each system and the removal efficiency of the type of BMP. We will be able to calculate a
load removed to document our contribution to the load allocation. These systems must be maintained and
inspected every 3 years and the date is noted in the database.

The town should continue to include energy and water conservation in all redevelopment projects. The
plumbing code requires water saving fixtures.

There are clean-up events each year in town where volunteers spend a day collecting trash from the beach.
Another such event focuses on the dunes.

The Maryland Coastal Bays Program uses it’s Comprehensive Conservation Management Plan to target
water conservation. They have worked with the Hotel-Motel industry to requests that guests reuse their
towels and linens to reduce the water demand.

The town has a requirement that any tree removed or large shrub has to be replaced at a ratio of 1:1. A tree
about to be removed agrees in an application to replace it by a certain date. The current landscaping
ordinance requires 15% of the parcel be planted. A new program may begin this year that will reimburse
residents when they plant native species.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

B. Valuing communities and neighborhoods -- building upon assets and building in amenities:

(1) What are the key assets that exist in the community upon which the Plan’s projects and initiatives
will build? Assets may include physical assets such as parks and historic structures and also civic and
economic assets such as employers, educational institutions, and cultural organizations and activities.

Access:
There is an existing street grid system throughout the Sustainable Community Area. Vehicular movement
is fairly intuitive and pedestrian movement is facilitated throughout the area for access to the Boardwalk
and Beach plus movement to the Bay side of area.

Transit:
An existing bus transit system operates throughout the Sustainable Community Area. Transit movement is
primarily, if not exclusively, North/South along the axis of the area.

Parks:
Two major parks within the Sustainable Community are the Sunset Park and Skateboard Park. Sunset Park
generally operates as a passive park, yet the location and programming make it ideal for Summer Concerts
that are open to the public. Skateboard Park is a skateboard facility owned by Worcester County and
operated by the Town of Ocean City. Skateboard Park experiences use throughout the year, although still
when the weather is conducive to skateboard activity.

Events:
Throughout the Summer Season, the Town of Ocean City, Ocean City Development Corporation and
private entities conduct special events that attract visitors to the Sustainable Community Area. Examples
include The Ocean City Air Show, Summerfest, Free Concerts and more.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(2) What policies, initiatives or projects will reuse or enhance the historical assets, traditional
business districts/Main Streets and cultural resources of the community? What actions will reinforce
your community’s authentic “sense of place” and historic character?

The Sustainable Community Area includes the Main Street Program area and is a significant way
considered the ‘traditional’ and historic portion of Ocean City. The Ocean City Boardwalk aligns along the
Eastern edge of the Sustainable Community Area where the majority of retail commercial and amusement
district exists. Also within this area is the Ocean City Lifesaver Station Museum which functions as a
historical society as well.

Implementing the Main Street Program along with updating the Design Guidelines as part of the Action
Plan intends to increase the sense of place that exists in the sustainable community Area. Consideration is
being given to creating an Historic District with walking tours and plaques to identify the historic elements
in the area. Finally, a way finding system for pedestrians is contemplated as a method to further define the
cultural, historic and economic resources in the community.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(3) Describe policies, initiatives or projects that will increase community access to green spaces,
parks and other amenities? A community can gain social and physical benefits from access to a
healthy natural environment. The inclusion of complete streets, trails, green space, parks and trees
contribute to the character and health of a community. Examples might include improvements to the
tree canopy by planting street trees, improving local neighborhood streams, or reusing a vacant lot
for a new community park or playground.

Town codes have mandatory setbacks to maintain some open space on each parcel. There are mandatory
landscape requirements as part of site plan reviews. Stormwater management requires the planting of native
plant species.

The beach allows for access to open space. The beach varies in width. The town routinely cleans the beach
using specifically-designed machinery for the purpose. All foreign objects are removed from the sand and
discarded.

Sunset Park on the bayside at South Philadelphia Avenue is a small facility with live bands, a stage,
exhibits, crabbing, and fishing. It is only a few hundred feet from a bus depot and the boardwalk.
The Downtown Recreation Complex on the bayside between 3
rd
Street and 4
th
Street has several activities
and open fields for activities. There is a skateboard facility, a playground, baseball fields, a basketball
court, and space to go crabbing or fishing.

Somerset Plaza is a converted town street with trees, shops, and free Wi-Fi. It is closed to vehicular traffic.
The Inlet jetty provides opportunity for fishing, sightseeing, and bird watching. Deep sea fishing vessels
pass by on their way to the nearby harbor.

Landscaping practices focus on the use of native species of plants to assure that they reach maturity.

C. Enhancing economic competitiveness

(1) What economic development policies, initiatives or projects will improve the economy through
investments in small businesses and other key employment sectors? What economic development and
business incentives will you build upon or implement as part of the SC Plan? Examples could include
but are not limited to: green-taping for expedited project application review; permitting and
inspection; job training; business tax credits; and, revolving loan funds.

J ob training seminars, low interest loans, OCDC grants for commercial improvements, similar to what they
do now. The OCDC façade program and Green Building Initiatives program assist businesses and
homeowners with improving their properties.

DRAFT
Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(2) What workforce development policies, initiatives or projects will increase access to jobs and
economic opportunity for residents in the SC Area? Do you have a goal for job creation? Are green
jobs an opportunity in the jurisdiction or SC Area?

Worcester County/State of Maryland could assist in providing transportation to the job market office. Many
of the businesses in Ocean City need labor only during the summer months as this is a coastal resort
community that thrives off tourism. The goal of everyone involved in improving our market is to fill every
job opening and find housing to keep employees in or near their jobs. A goal of ours is to increase the
amount of quality employee housing. Unfortunately, the enforcement of housing standards by town staff
determines that many employee housing situations are sub-standard and need upgrades before they can
continue to be occupied. This can only be done through private investments, assisted by loans or grants
from the local area and funded through the State agencies. J ob assistance and training should be provided
within the SC area by the State if local, potential employees are to compete for jobs.
MD. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation - (http://www.dllr.state.md.us/employment/)
Veterans: The Maryland Employment Service administers the Local Veterans Employment Representative
(LVER) and Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) to provide services to veterans and eligible
persons in the One-Stop Career Centers. Veterans are given priority when referred to job orders placed on
Maryland Workforce Exchange. In addition to helping veterans find employment and training
opportunities, DVOP/LVER staff provides vocational guidance, referral to supportive services and case
management services to veterans with significant barriers to employment.
Maryland's One-Stop Career Centers:
The One-Stop J ob Market in Salisbury, Maryland serves Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester counties. The
Job Market features an array of employment and training services for job seekers and businesses,
providing a broad range of workforce development resources and information in one location. We strive to
make every customer's experience productive and rewarding by focusing on their needs and providing the
right blend of services to ensure success.
Foreign Workers:
Foreign labor could be assisted with finding job openings by asking employers to list their jobs at City Hall
and other town facilities, as well as at OCDC and on our website. The Worcester County Economic
Development Department can provide access to jobs through offering job placement seminars where
applicants can search openings in the local area, much like the jobs fair Ocean City has each year at the
Convention Center.
The Social Security Administration provides their services to issue social security numbers to non-resident
foreign workers each summer through a cooperative effort with the Ocean City government whereby Social
Security staff set-up office in City Hall on 3
rd
Street, within the SC area, to allow these workers to apply for
and obtain numbers that are a requirement for receiving a paycheck from American employers. The small
number of hours that the Social Security Administration has allowed for their Ocean City operation has
proven to be insufficient (Friday mornings from 8:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M.). This service needs to be
expanded to more than one day per week. Potential foreign workers continually arrive at City Hall
expecting to apply for their social security numbers, only to be turned away and told to return the following
Friday.

D. Promoting access to quality affordable housing.

(1) What housing policies, initiatives or projects will expand housing choices - rental and
homeownership – for people of a range of ages, incomes, and also for disabled individuals? How will
these actions address the current housing conditions and needs noted in Section II?

The Town of Ocean City and OCDC shall strive to improve the existing building stock within the
Community Legacy Area and to increase the availability of affordable housing opportunities.

POLICY 1: The Town of Ocean City and OCDC shall provide support for various selected
public and private building improvement programs, which are aimed at
rehabilitation and the provision of additional affordable housing.

POLICY2: The OCDC shall work with the Town in the preparation of neighborhood and
redevelopment plans. The Sustainable Communities Area may provide funding
or utilize its powers for implementation of appropriate provisions of these plans.

POLICY3: The Town of Ocean City and OCDC shall increase housing opportunities in the
area and to demonstrate the type of infill housing, which could be built on
available vacant lots within the Sustainable Communities Area.



Page 31 of 51

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(2) Will these housing initiatives or projects increase access to transit or community walkability
and/or decrease transportation costs? In other words, will the housing investments result in more
people living near work or town centers, or able to more conveniently reach work, school, shopping
and/or recreation?

Transit - The Town of Ocean City is a linear city which extends 10 miles from north to south and generally
only one quarter to one half mile east to west. Almost any new housing projects will be in close proximity
to this bus service. The Town’s bus system operates year round and covers this whole 10 mile length of
island. An all-day bus pass is only $3 making it affordable to residents and visitors. Special discount bus
passes are also available. The Town provides a bus to those incapable of using the general bus. This is a
free service.

Walkability – For the most part the Town’s streets have sidewalks on both sides of the rights of way. The
Town has placed a priority on safe walking for residents and visitors. The Town attempts to work with
private property owners to widen downtown sidewalks whenever possible. Such wider sidewalks allow for
more pedestrians to use the walkways and also to have the option of walking further from the street and
vehicles when on street parking is not present. The downtown area has ample on street parking. Such on
street parking can be classified as a traffic calming device to assist in more safe walkways. The 2.7 mile
long Boardwalk is one of the best and fun walking experiences one will find.

DRAFT

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(3) What is your goal for the number of units to be created of affordable workforce housing, rental
and homeownership? What populations (by income or special needs) will benefit from this increased
access to affordable housing?

Since most of Ocean City is currently developed, an important housing goal is to ensure that a variety of
housing types are available to allow for workforce housing, rental and homeownership opportunities.
Currently the downtown area contains a concentration of the workforce housing for seasonal summer
employees. In several cases, new workforce housing units have been provided, but this is not the norm.
Most of these units are in the older buildings and often found on the upper floors above commercial first
floors. Proper code enforcement of these older buildings can help ensure that such properties are in good
condition and not overcrowded.

Rental housing is quite affordable in Ocean City during the off-season. However, during the peak summer
season the market rate structure presents challenges for many.

Home ownership is also challenging for year round residents, however, the current low interest rates and
relatively soft real estate market makes for an ideal time for renters to purchase housing.

The Town of Ocean City has a variety of housing such as single-family homes, townhouses,
condominiums, and mobile homes.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(4) Which community groups or stakeholders will be key to the implementation of the initiatives and
projects noted in this section?

Community Partners

The Town of Ocean City is the important player in the downtown revitalization efforts. The Town
provides funding to the OCDC for its operations. It also has committed the important revenue stream of the
Inlet Parking Lot Fund to be used for revitalization projects such as land acquisition. Its departments work
closely with the OCDC staff and Board.

Worcester County is another important partner in the revitalization efforts for downtown Ocean City. The
County provides an annual grant to the OCDC for its operations. The County Commissioner for Ocean
City serves on the OCDC Board of Directors.

Within Ocean City there is a unique networking of organizations that make up the Partners Group. This
loosely set up organization was established seven years ago and is a means of communicating on various
issues affecting Ocean City. The OCDC is the newest member of this organization and works very closely
with each of the other five Partner organizations. The Partners Group consists of the following
organizations:

Ocean City Development Corporation
Hotel Motel Restaurant Association, Inc.
Ocean City Chamber of Commerce
Downtown Association
Economic Development Council

The OCDC also has one ex-officio member of each of these organizations. Such members are permitted
pursuant to the OCDC by-laws. The OCDC receives valuable input on its redevelopment program from
each of these members. The OCDC has provided at least one presentation on its redevelopment program to
these organizations and keeps in touch with each organization on a regular basis. The Economic
Development Council sponsors meetings on a regular basis whereby the organizations provide an update to
each other, too. The Partners Group will play an integral part in our redevelopment program in terms of
policy formulation as well as support of our strategies.

The OCDC will need to partner with the Town of Ocean City on the redevelopment program for this area.
The OCDC will also require the financial assistance of the City on specific projects, too. Since the creation
of the OCDC, this organization has had a strong relationship with the Town of Ocean City. The City’s
Planning and Community Development Director is the appointed contact between the City and OCDC and
he attends our Board meetings. He also works closely with the OCDC Executive Director on several
projects. The OCDC provides various information to the City on a regular basis as well as provides an
annual report of its activities to the Mayor and City Council.

The most important partnership for the OCDC is to work with the area business owners, property owners,
and residents. It is this group that has allowed for the success of the OCDC programs and projects
particularly those required a match from the private sector applicants such as the Façade Improvement
Program.

Many of the OCDC members are from these groups. Almost the entire OCDC Board is a resident, business
owner, or property owner in the downtown area. Other important organizations which the OCDC has
partnered with include the UMES/Rural Development Center, Salisbury University, the Community
Foundation of the Eastern Shore, the Art League of Ocean City, Lower Eastern Shore Heritage Council,
Patrick Bennett Foundation, and Worcester County Arts Council.

The OCDC will also be partnering with area business and property owners to continue its façade
improvement program, Green Building Initiatives Program, Business Assistance Program and other OCDC
programs. As previously mentioned, the OCDC recognizes the need to partner with the private sector to
bring about successful redevelopment. And it also realizes that such actions will require the OCDC to take
an aggressive role in promoting this form of redevelopment.

E. Support transportation efficiency and access.

(1) What policies, strategies and projects are envisioned to strengthen the transportation network
that affects the proposed SC Area? How will these initiatives support transportation choices
(including walking, bicycling, bus or rail transit, and carpooling) or otherwise promote an efficient
transportation network that integrates housing and transportation land uses?

There is currently a bus transfer station on South Division Street that gives access to public transportation
options for visitors. From there, riders have access to any part of town via the buses for a minimal fee.
Adjacent to this depot is a large public parking lot. Future plans have this location slated for a public
parking garage. Taxi cabs are regulated by the town through a medallion system, charging annual fees for
mandatory licenses for each taxi cab on the town’s streets.

In West Ocean City the town owns a large parking facility where visitors park and ride the bus into town.
The streets, themselves, have been repaved. Utilities have been moved underground. New sidewalks
replaced older ones which allow for safer use. There are many bicycle and scooter rental businesses in the
SC area. Visitors have several options, once they have parked their personal vehicles, to move about the
town.

The town operates several electronic signs that are located where they are most effective. These signs give
motorists current information on road conditions, weather, and parking issues to help them avoid congested
areas. A grant has just been approved by FEMA to help us purchase another such digital, solar-powered
sign later in 2013.

Boardwalk Trams are energy-efficient mini-trains that move tourists up and down the boardwalk. They
offer riders a scenic trip along the beachfront where the oceanview can be enjoyed.

(2) If applicable, describe the SC Area’s connection or proximity to transportation centers (e.g.
Metro, MARC, and light rail stations) and describe opportunities for Transit - Oriented
Development (TOD). Will Plan strategies and projects contribute to jobs/housing balance or
otherwise provide a mix of land uses that can be expected to reduce reliance on single-occupancy
automobiles? (If transit or TOD is not applicable in your community, all points in this section will be
based on questions 1 and 3)

The SC area has direct access to major transportation routes and links with air transit facilities including
Salisbury Airport and Baltimore Washington International Airport. U.S. Route 50 enters town at Division
Street, within the SC area, delivering traffic into the heart of the lower downtown area. The SC area is
about a half mile from the West Ocean City Park and Ride facility where visitors can park their vehicles to
enter town on one of our buses. There are no rail stations in this area. With the present lack of attractions
downtown, visitors can continue to use the bus system and walk between destinations. The 1,200 space
Inlet parking lot provides substantial parking relief to the SC area. Another option is for motorists to park
further north and walk south along the boardwalk to reach entertainment destinations at the southern end of
the SC area.

F. Coordinating and leveraging (federal, state, local) policies and investment.

(1) What specific steps will the Sustainable Community Workgroup take to coordinate policies and
funding streams to remove barriers to investment and maximize and increase funding in the
proposed Sustainable Community Area?

The Sustainable Community Workgroup will continue some of the work already underway based on the
Community Legacy Plan and explore other options to expand their role as facilitators of resources being
employed by the community. Examples of existing programs meant to continue include Façade and Private
Business Reinvestment Initiatives supported by funds from Maryland Department of Housing and
Community Development. Another example of a continuing program is the use of a portion of the funds
from the Inlet (Beach) Parking Lot owned and operated by the Town of Ocean City; these funds have been
used as matching funds for grants to improve streets, create public parking areas and more.

To expand their current role, the Sustainable Community Workgroup will explore Tax Increment Financing
as a funding option; previous attempts were unsuccessful though this option is worthy of pursuit. Another
expansion of their role will be actively pursuing Federal and Maryland grants, while using matching local
funds to implement priority projects. Being a clearing house and providing increased and active pursuit of
Federal and Maryland funding sources that support private business.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(2) How is the proposed Sustainable Community Plan consistent with other existing community or
comprehensive plans?

The Sustainable Community plan is consistent with the Ocean City Comprehensive Plan. The following
are several of the consistencies:

1) The Sustainable Community area consists of about 255 of the 3,000 acres of land that make up the
town. Within those 255 acres are some of the highest density residential occupancies in the town. This
area also has the oldest structures in town, dating back to the late 1880s. Our population density far
exceeds that of Baltimore City or Annapolis, Maryland. We are challenged to help create new jobs
and additional employee housing within a small area that is only active, commercially, about 5 months
each year. Having the state programs assisting us in that endeavor is absolutely imperative to our
success. This is why we seek financial resources that will help keep money flowing through Ocean
City and back to the state.
2) A Sustainable Community must stay ahead of economic competitors by showing outright support and
having the resources it needs to attract business and promote its unique opportunities that are indicators
of whether this distinct area has infrastructure in place, transportation established, and can protect its
natural resources. Our Plan focuses on these exact points, as well.
3) A Sustainable Community needs the transportation infrastructure in place before asking investors to
develop. Our Plan recommends improved transportation, a good road system, good transit ridership,
and a pedestrian connection between attractions and other points within the SC area. As noted in
previous answers, the Ocean City Public Works Department has already made huge road
improvements, created wider sidewalks, installed new water pipes, and replaced much of our
boardwalk. This shows that the town is serious about competing with other resort destinations for
tourism dollars.

Section IV. Sustainable Community Action Plan

(3) How will the Plan help leverage and/or sustain more private sector investments?

Based on experience the Sustainable Community Action Plan is attainable and realistic. Ocean City
witnessed a trend of private investment following public infrastructure improvements. A prime example is
the redevelopment just north of the Sustainable Community Area along Baltimore Avenue from 15
th
Street
to 27
th
Street (the ocean side portion of the town that fronts along the Boardwalk) where Complete Street
concepts such as wider sidewalks, under grounding power lines, bike lanes and traffic calming measures
were installed. This area received a series of private property reinvestment along those ocean front
properties to redevelop mixed use projects and updated accommodations. Another method employed by
the Working Group utilizes matching funds to promote Green Building, Façade Improvements, and
Business Assistance programs to encourage reinvestment.

Initiatives in the Action Plan anticipate private investment. St. Louis Avenue has a design for a phased
streetscape project. Continuing the maintenance of the Boardwalk, increasing the number of comfort
stations and even simply repaving existing streets will rejuvenate the area. Implementing Design
Guidelines raise the standard of the redevelopment and encourage further redevelopment of adjacent
properties.

Section V. Progress Measures

For the Plan parts of section IV (A through F):

See attached map, OCDC Future Initiatives

(1) List the specific outcomes that the Plan seeks to produce.

Initial Planning & Organizational Initiatives

As with any long-term aggressive endeavor, planning and organization become ever so important before
proceeding with a project. The Downtown Village concept that IWG proposed includes three planned
phases. Before the phased work begins, several critical components need to be in place that will assure
long-term success and continuity. Several of these initiatives have been completed since the original 1999
IWG Plan of Action and are described below:

Creation of a Downtown Village Association – The Town of Ocean City set up the framework for a new
community development corporation as recommended by IWG in 1999. This initial group of 34 people
elected a Board of Directors of 15 individuals, which later became incorporated as a 501(c) (3) non-profit
organization and was designated the Ocean City Development Corporation. In 2000 the OCDC hired its
Executive Director and has its office at 108 Dorchester Street in the center of downtown. The OCDC has
been tasked with the charge of revitalizing downtown Ocean City.
Design Standards – A “sense of place” is a difficult product to achieve in a downtown environment. The
IWG Plan recommended the creation of urban design characteristics that would help guide new
development and renovation in downtown Ocean City.
The OCDC has created two sets of mandatory design standards for downtown Ocean City. These design
standards have been instrumental in promoting attractive and better designed projects than would have
occurred without such standards. The design standards require new development and renovation to provide
the architectural elements found in a seaside vernacular. Such elements generally consist of light colored
buildings, pitched roofs, and buildings with ample porches.
Land Assemblage - The 1999 IWG plan state this concept is to address the issues of land assemblage to
consolidate several smaller properties and attract a developer. As previously mentioned, the downtown
area contains a number of smaller parcels that may be difficult to develop by them. Since developers prefer
not to expend ample time to assemble these isolated properties in certain areas, it can be the role of the
OCDC to do so. To date, the OCDC and The Town of Ocean City have purchased several parcels for a
future assembled project.
Marketing – The IWG report stated redeveloping the downtown interior of Ocean City requires more than
physical improvements. The Town of Ocean City has provided significant increases in advertising funds
and a marketing campaign to attract tourists to Ocean City. The OCDC has created a marketing video to
highlight its organization and downtown Ocean City. Various press releases and newsletters are regularly
produced by the OCDC to showcase various redevelopment successes to the general public and
development community. In addition, the OCDC partners with a local newspaper to provide a weekly
insert of downtown happenings and advertising of local businesses.
Affordable Housing – The IWG report referenced a continuing problem in Ocean City; that ere is a lack of
affordable housing for employees. Steps should be undertaken to address this important issue. Although
employee housing issue is a City wide issue, the Town of Ocean City and OCDC have recently teamed up
to provide four downtown buildings to house some of the City’s seasonal workers. An 1897 building at
108 Dorchester Street, 110 Somerset Street, and two buildings at 105 Dorchester Street were renovated and
provide affordable housing for Ocean City Beach Patrol employees. The City owns the properties while
the OCDC manages and maintains these units.
Funding – The IWG reported the need for the City and OCDC to create development incentives and
partnerships to provide the transformation of the physical look of downtown. Such incentives are
necessary to attract the type of “high profile” anchors into the downtown core area. Land assemblage, tax
abatements, business improvement districts, and tax increment financing are several incentive types IWG
Page 42 of 51
SC Application - FY 2012
DRAFT
recommended to look at. The Town of Ocean City and OCDC have researched various incentives. Due to
the magnitude of this cost this issue will need further time.

PHASING PLAN
Realizing the complexities in implementing any Plan of Action, IWG divided the overall Downtown
Village into three phases. All the recommendations proposed in this visioning document interconnect, thus
implementing them in a sequential manner is critical to the overall success of a revitalized downtown.
Refer to attached map labeled OCDC Future Initiatives.

PHASE I IMPROVEMENTS

East/West Corridors from Baltimore Avenue to the Boardwalk
The challenge presented to IWG (as related to pedestrian traffic patterns) was to motivate pedestrian
mobility from the beach and boardwalk to and from the bay front. The first logical step in obtaining a
unified downtown core is the ability to tie the successful boardwalk development with the interior
downtown blocks. Very little pedestrian traffic is directed towards activities in the downtown interior.
Subsequently, in order to achieve a more balanced circulation pattern, safe, inviting and friendly pedestrian
corridors need to be designed.

To date three street segments have been converted from vehicular streets to pedestrian/semi-pedestrian
streets only:
Somerset Plaza (Baltimore Avenue to the Boardwalk)
South 1st Street (Baltimore Avenue to the Boardwalk)
South Division Street (Philadelphia Avenue to the Bay)

Although is it very challenging to create these pedestrian corridors, they can play a major role in the
revitalization of downtown Ocean City. The Town of Ocean City and OCDC should evaluate other
potential pedestrian corridors as they arise.

In addition, certain streets will require wider sidewalks to accommodate increased pedestrian movements,
particularly for safety issues.

Parking Facility/Multi-model Transit Station
Since the 1970’s there have been a number of studies related to downtown Ocean City. Each study has
recommended the construction of a parking facility.

The IWG report believes that in order to achieve a balanced pedestrian circulation pattern and address some
of the congestion issues, that a parking facility be constructed along the interior core of the downtown area.
The site which would have the greatest impact on circulation but the least impact on existing businesses are
the two blocks bordered by Baltimore Avenue (on the east), S. Division Street (on the south), Philadelphia
Avenue (on the west) and Wicomico Street (on the north).
This combination of properties lies strategically near the south end of the downtown area and in the middle
of the bay and boardwalk. In addition, the parking facility can incorporate a new multi-model station,
replacing the existing transit station on S. Division Street. A new multi-model station could house the
existing transit functions, a stop for bicycles, a park and ride destination as well as a ticket outlet for a
potential water transportation system operating parallel to the bayside.
The parking facility’s design should be compatible with surrounding architecture and reinforce the new
“Downtown Village” theme. The facility will have to be designed around and incorporate the existing
water tower. As mentioned earlier in this phase, some modifications to vehicular circulation will need to be
made.
Financing the parking facility will be the greatest challenge. Most facilities are financed through public
means. These facilities are not usually required to make a profit. Most are publicly financed through tax
exempt bond issues or revenue bonds. More recently however, are facilities financed with some infusion of
Page 43 of 51
SC Application - FY 2012
DRAFT
private funds. Outsourcing of facility development allows the private sector turnkey delivery of a facility,
on a public site, within a structured agreement, typically a leaseback.

Lenders prefer locations that offer a mix of monthly and transient revenue. The proposed site’s proximity to
the boardwalk and amusement areas, coupled with the elimination of a portion of metered spaces in the
pedestrian corridors and proposed facility location, provide the demand counts to help justify its use. Close
proximity to future developable sites also is advantageous. Another strategy to consider when looking at
financing alternatives is seeking a new financing vehicle, which includes more amenities than just a
parking facility. For example, the facility could incorporate some retail on the first level. High turnover
storefronts such as dry cleaners, coffee shops, and ATM machines would be beneficial. These types of
services are more for convenience. Most are small spaces, and premium rents can be justified because
they’re going to benefit from the pedestrian traffic.

A local cost-sharing program might also be developed with local businesses that would include parking
packages for employees working in nearby businesses. Furthermore, by incorporating a multi-model
facility, the project becomes eligible for federal funding. Federal grants can help buy down the capital cost
of the parking facility, making the complex more financially feasible.

Pedestrian Plan
As an extension of the Inlet Park is the wrap-around boardwalk along the inlet. The boardwalk along the
inlet should extend from the edge of the proposed Inlet Park and wrap around to the bayside following the
waterside as much as possible until the connection to the bayside boardwalk at 2
nd
Street. It is recognized
the U. S. Coast Guard station can present an obstacle given homeland security issues with extending this
boardwalk through this property. However, easements for this proposed boardwalk should be pursued on
other properties as much as possible.

Specialty Retail
Providing parking in the interior core of the downtown area will have a significant impact in redistributing
the circulation pattern throughout the area. However, commercial opportunities are created when a parking
facility is constructed from the high amount of pedestrian traffic that will be generated. Specialty retail and
convenience goods are natural tenants to locate near parking facilities.

As mentioned earlier in the report, convenience goods would be ideal tenants as part of a parking facility.
The IWG team noticed however, that very few specialty shops existed in the downtown core area (antique
shops, apparel, furnishings etc.). As part of an overall strategy to redevelop the core area a “Specialty Retail
Village” concept should be designed in the interior core between Baltimore Avenue and Philadelphia
Avenue from the Inlet to N. Division Street. This area, along with the parking facility will set the tone for
the rest of the district as it relates to the building’s architectural design.

An important component to the special retail concentration is the inclusion of adequate outdoor shopping,
dining and quality entertainment spaces. The large open public spaces are designed wide enough so that
service vehicles could access the interior spaces. This type of design allows people to not only shop by
strolling but also attracts people who want to just watch the people (a similar concept to the boardwalk).
The open outdoor spaces would allow other “public” uses to occur, such as art exhibits and musical
entertainers. An interesting place happens when a person experiences a place where they can be stimulated
by sight, by smell, and by sound.

The vision described above will only happen if there is a commitment to make it happen. The easiest way
to realize this vision is by starting with one of the interior blocks and move outwards. The IWG team
suggested that the city, through the DVA (OCDC), implement a two-step process in selecting a concept and
development team for the Specialty Retail Village.

The first step would be a Request for Development Qualifications followed by a Request for Proposals.
Following OCDC and city council selection of the developer, city staff would then negotiate terms and
conditions for implementation. Using this specialty retail concentration as an initial financing tool, the
concept can begin small and evolve into one of the most desirable areas in Ocean City.

DRAFT

East/West Corridor Enhancements from Baltimore Avenue to Philadelphia Avenue
While making the necessary improvements (pedestrian crosswalks and pedestrian improvements) along
Baltimore and Philadelphia Avenues, as well as during the design of the Specialty Retail blocks, careful
consideration will need to be made as to the design of the east/west corridors between Baltimore Avenue
and Philadelphia Avenue.

South Division Street could become a “transit only” thoroughfare, however, it acts as a strong pedestrian
link between the boardwalk and bayside. This will be one of the more popular pedestrian routes with the
parking facility/transit station situated along S. Division Street. This proposed project will only occur with
the cooperation of the property owners along S. Division Street east of Baltimore Avenue.

The remaining east/west streets from Wicomico Street to N. Division Street will all be open to vehicular
traffic, however, should include similar pedestrian amenities to those corridors east of Baltimore Avenue.
These streets will play an important role with respect to east/west circulation and compliment the proposed
Specialty Retail block(s) with respect to access and parking. Several side streets could be redesigned to
allow for wider sidewalks and angled parking.
The remaining east/west streets between Baltimore and Philadelphia Avenues, from N. Division Street to
3
rd
Street could also contain pedestrian enhancements. These streets will preserve their width and current
parking space allotments.
East/west streets north of 3
rd
Street should be reviewed for increased opportunities to provide wider
sidewalks and improved pedestrian amenities.

Baltimore Avenue Enhancements
Similar to Philadelphia Avenue, Baltimore Avenue north of North Division Street necessitates an improved
look. Currently, Baltimore Avenue serves as Ocean City’s “Main Street”. In 1993, the southern portion of
Baltimore Avenue (up to South 2
nd
Street) was completely renovated with upgraded underground utilities,
landscaping, decorative paving and street furniture.
Similar to the Philadelphia Avenue evaluation, Baltimore Avenue should also be analyzed to the most
appropriate use of traffic lanes and parking. During the IWG report it was stated that many residents and
business owners expressed a desire to see parking made available again along Baltimore Avenue. While
IWG concurred with this request, it would be in the best interest of the city to have the comprehensive
transportation analysis completed prior to finalizing these plan specifics. The City will be reviewing
options for the area of public right of way that is located in significant sections of this street north of North
Division Street.


PHASE II IMPROVMENTS

Completion of East/West Corridor Enhancements to the Bayside
The final phase of the east/west corridor enhancements takes the pedestrian improvements from
Philadelphia Avenue all the way to the bayside. This includes all of the streets from 3
rd
Street to S. Division
Street. All of these streets will preserve their widths as well as their existing parking spaces. The pedestrian
enhancements for these remaining streets will be consistent with the rest of the previously improved streets.

Future Developable Site Evaluation
Up to this phase the recommendations made toward realizing a more active interior downtown core
centered on small-to-medium size public/private sector investments. This approach is logical considering
the seasonal challenges and unproven market for a large-scale investment project. Having achieved success
in phases I and II, the next natural evolution is the ability to attract the “high-profile” anchors, such as an
IMAX theater, new hotel anchor or museum.
Towards this goal, the Town of Ocean City and OCDC must identify potential developable sites that offer
prospective projects a location with easy access, high visibility, and land availability. Several obvious
parcels rise to the top of the list including the former Cropper Concrete location which offers long term
possibilities. The OCDC and Town of Ocean City should develop a comprehensive strategy in packaging
these properties as potential public/private ventures.

Proposed projects to pursue in future:

Business Assistance Program – The OCDC should continue its successful commercial façade program
which has improved the overall appearance of the downtown area. In addition, such façade applicants will
be required to adhere to the downtown design standards for such renovation work. A new business
assistance program has been started by the OCDC to provide financial assistance to new and expanding
businesses in the downtown area. Other business assistance programs may be considered in the future.

Land Acquisition/Landbanking – The consolidation and assembly of land is proposed to begin the
physical transformation of the downtown area. The recommended location(s) of this land assembly is an
interior block that is west of Baltimore Avenue and east of Philadelphia Avenue; however the OCDC
should be flexible to reviewing other properties that are available for other redevelopment endeavors.

The interior area project is planned as a mixed commercial/residential use development with a single
anchor tenant (i.e., a high density residential or hotel with limited convention facilities that would bring
people to and have them stay in the area for a period of time). The project should meet recommended
architectural style/theme standards and promote a strong pedestrian orientation.

The property should contain limited onsite parking. This will allow for compact development while
simultaneously limiting building height. Parking should be provided via a fee process within the
anticipated Downtown public parking facility. An Incentive Program should be created that includes
recommended development guidelines as well as financial “incentives” to encourage redevelopment.

Downtown Parking Facility – Ocean City's mass transit system provides an excellent service and will
remain an important ingredient in bringing people to the Downtown area. In fact, due to the success of the
City’s bus service, the use of the parking/transit center at South Division Street has expanded significantly
and needs to be replaced with a larger facility. A larger facility with accompanying service lanes is
necessary at the earliest possible time. The center also handles buses from the County’s bus system.

A major obstacle for redevelopment of the downtown is the lack of parking. Parking should be used as a
redevelopment strategy to allow new and existing properties to redevelop and utilize this intermodal
facility. A multi-level parking deck should be constructed in the downtown area and the parking structure
should be tied into a new intermodal transit station. It is imperative that the parking structure be attractive
and emphasizes the quality of the redevelopment efforts. First floor retail or other active use should be
considered to provide additional street life to South Baltimore Avenue and Worcester Street.

Inlet Boardwalk Connection – In order to physically tie the bayside properties and the Boardwalk
together, an inlet boardwalk will need to be constructed. This connection will run westward from the
present City’s Inlet boardwalk and then continue northward to link to the Philadelphia Avenue’s 14 feet
wide boardwalk constructed on the west side of the street. The long term goal is a connected boardwalk
along the waterfront, extending northwards to 4
th
Street.

Route 50 Bridge improvements – Presently, the Route 50 Bridge contains limited space for pedestrians,
bicyclists, and fishermen. To correct this situation, several options have been discussed ranging from
renovations of the existing bridge to the construction of a new bridge. The decision as to this bridge issue
will be determined in the near future although the actual construction/renovation will be many years away
from occurring.

Downtown Public Arts Program – Public art is a major component in creating a city’s visual image.
Public art is often the element that can help in making a city memorable and provides it significance for
succeeding generations. The OCDC recognizes the importance of public art as a means of enhancing the
quality of life in the community and as a means of providing professional opportunities to local and
regional visual artists. The OCDC has established a committee to promote and sponsor various types of
Page 46 of 51
SC Application - FY 2012
DRAFT
public artwork for the Downtown area. This committee includes representatives from the Downtown
Association, Beautification Committee, and the Art League of Ocean City.

Historic Preservation Program– Ocean City contains several structures and sites that have interest from a
historic and architectural viewpoint. The preservation and enhancement of such places can be a boom for
redeveloping the Downtown area. However, without any incentives to fit these structures into the future
plans for the Downtown area, many will continue to deteriorate and be demolished. Besides direct
preservation of such structures, the OCDC will provide educational materials to promote the preservation
efforts for specific structures. Such efforts can include a historic marker program and walking tour maps.

Residential Enhancement Program – There are number of residential buildings in downtown Ocean City
that could be provided with incentives for renovation as with the residential Façade Program. In particular,
the St. Louis Avenue area, between North Division Street and 1
st
Street presents an opportunity that is
unique in the Downtown area. This area possesses a number of quaint homes that can be rehabilitated and
help create another “interesting place” in the Downtown area. Also, additional year round housing
opportunities in the downtown area should be promoted to increase the number of residents and help the
local year round restaurants and retail stores.

OCDC Fence Program – Consistent with its downtown design standards, the OCDC will provide financial
assistance to commercial and residential property owners desiring to install new fencing on the street sides
or front yards of their properties. Such fencing can be used as an effective screening method for parking
areas for commercial uses as well as an attractive and traditional element for residential properties.

Employee Housing – This item has been a major issue for the many years. Although, newer hotels and
service related businesses are constructed, the number of employee housing units is decreasing. The
OCDC supports efforts to improve, rehabilitate, and construct new units reserved for employee housing.
Such housing generally does not require much parking and can be effectively integrated into mixed-use
developments.

Future Large Site Redevelopment – There are several large scale sites that can be utilized for future
redevelopment in the downtown area. Two potential sites are the present Coast Guard Station, south of
Worcester Street on the Bayside, and the Cropper Property, which was used as a concrete plant and located
on the Bayside, north of N. Division Street, but is now available for redevelopment. Both properties
represent potentials to locate larger attractions to the area, such as an aquarium or IMAX Theatre, as well
as, compact mixed-use development. Of course, the Coast Guard site would be problematic to redevelop
given the need for such a facility near the inlet area. The Cropper property could be impacted by the Route
50 Bridge configuration. Either type of project will need to comply with the general guidelines, which the
OCDC promotes. Other larger street sites can be included as land assemblage becomes practical and
necessary.

Baltimore Avenue street improvements – This important corridor should be provided comprehensive
street improvements between North Division Street and 15
th
Street. The additional public right of way may
be useful to improve portions of this street.

St. Louis Avenue Improvements – Future streetscaping along St. Louis Avenue north of N. Division
Street will assist in creating a more pleasing walking environment. Such improvements should consist of
improved pedestrian amenities, improved intersections, and undergrounding of utilities. This project is
currently in the construction process over a three year period.

Street enhancements – Consistent with the IWG Plan of Action, various downtown streets should be
provided various improvements. Some of these improvements may include changes to the traffic flow, but
many should improve the pedestrian amenities with special reference to wider sidewalks.

Alleyway improvements – As already referenced alleys play a significant role in downtown Ocean City.
Provisions should be made to improve alleys when necessary as well as promoting alleys in larger projects.
Such alleys can be improved to provide additional stormwater management techniques.
Page 47 of 51
SC Application - FY 2012
DRAFT

Water taxi – consistent with the original IWG Plan of Action a water taxi system can be included into the
downtown transportation plans to provide an interesting method for visitors and residents to travel to
various destination points.

Wayfinding signage program – Fitting into the various redevelopment strategy of identifying important
points of interest in downtown is the need to direct people to such points. A wayfinding signage program
can be used for vehicular and pedestrians to direct and highlight various destinations to visit.

Interactive water display – Although not yet identified for a specific suitable site, an interactive water
display should be considered to attract people.

Improved entranceway to inlet parking lot – Recognizing the large number of vehicles visiting the Inlet
Parking Lot, it should be provided with a more appealing look. This project could be combined with
improvements to the Inlet Park which is adjacent to this entrance.

Special events – The Town of Ocean City and OCDC should continue to promote special events in
downtown Ocean City. Some of these special events could be directly provided by the OCDC or through
sponsorship assistance.

Building demolition program – There are several buildings that are severely dilapidated in downtown and
could require demolition. The State of Maryland has a program for providing financial assistance to such
severe structures. These buildings should be reviewed on a case by case basis working with the affected
property owner and Town of Ocean City.

Marketing – The OCDC will pursue strategies to promote downtown Ocean City as well as the OCDC’s
program and successes. Such marketing may consist of press releases, videos, City publications, local
radio and television resources, area publications, and OCDC newsletters.

Design Standards – Work with Town of Ocean City to create design standards for other areas of the
Town.

Community Partners

Within Ocean City there is a unique networking of six organizations that make up the Partners Group. This
loosely set up organization was established three years ago and is a great means of communicating on
various issues affecting Ocean City. The OCDC is the newest member of this organization and works very
closely with each of the other five Partner organizations. The Partners Group consists of the following
organizations:

Hotel Motel Restaurant Association, Inc.
Ocean City Chamber of Commerce
Downtown Association
Economic Development Council

The OCDC also has one ex-officio member of each of these organizations on its Board of Directors. Such
members are permitted pursuant to the OCDC by-laws. The OCDC receives valuable input on its
redevelopment program from each of these members. The OCDC has provided at least one presentation on
its redevelopment program to these organizations and keeps in touch with each organization on a regular
basis. The Economic Development Council sponsors meetings on a regular basis whereby the
organizations provide an update to each other, too. The Partners Group will play an integral part in our
redevelopment program in terms of policy formulation as well as support of our strategies.

The OCDC will need to partner with the Town of Ocean City on the redevelopment program for this area.
The OCDC will also require the financial assistance of the City on specific projects, too. Since the creation
of the OCDC, this organization has had a strong relationship with the City. The City’s Planning and
Page 48 of 51
SC Application - FY 2012
DRAFT
Community Development Director is the appointed contact between the City and OCDC and he attends our
Board meetings. He also works closely with the OCDC Executive Director on several projects. The
OCDC provides various information to the City on a regular basis as well as provides a quarterly report of
its activities to the Mayor and City Council.

The most important partnership for the OCDC is to work with the area business owners, property owners,
and residents. Other important organizations which the OCDC has partnered with include the UMES/Rural
Development Center, Salisbury University, the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore, the Art
League of Ocean City, Patrick Bennett Foundation, and Worcester County Arts Council.

The OCDC will also be partnering with area business and property owners to continue its façade
improvement program, if funded by the State. As previously mentioned, the OCDC recognizes the need to
partner with the private sector to bring about successful redevelopment. And it also realizes that such
actions will require the OCDC to take an aggressive role in promoting this form of redevelopment.

Section V. Progress Measures

(2) And, list the specific benchmarks that will be used to measure progress toward these outcomes.

There are a number of benchmarks to use to gauge the success of the redevelopment efforts of this
extended Community Legacy Plan. They are as follows:
Design Standards implementation – the easiest method to determine the effectiveness of this project is to
evaluate the quality of the new buildings being designed and developed in this district. The OCDC has
already been working with the Town of Ocean City in this site plan process and has offered many
recommendations that have been incorporated into the design of new projects.
Façade Program – the increased number of commercial uses that are renovating their facades. As
previously mentioned, this program would be aimed at commercial businesses as well as motel, hotels, bed
& breakfast establishments, and housing serving workforce employees. The effectiveness of this program
is easily determined by the number of projects completed as well as the level of private investment.
An increase in the pedestrian traffic within this district, particularly in the inner blocks, would be good
measure of success.
The number of site plans and building permits being issued could also measure additional private sector
redevelopment.
