Ocean City SkateBoard Park

Ocean City is evaluating a permanent skateboard park. One similar to the photo above-with smooth poured concrete. Great for the kids and those active families alike. One that will cater to the masses, attract tourist & reinforce our community as the family beach-destination.   

...As you can imagine, the local tax-basis of year-round voters, are mainly made up of anti-tax spenders and will oppose any such improvement.  Let's help n get our youth playing outdoors again.

HELP spread the word, forward this,  and show support for if you have any interest.  

Let City Council know you would be supportive!
