OCEAN CITY NOISE ORDINANCE INFORMATION
City Council will require rental properties to have bar-codes with contact information so Landlords can be called by the police when noise violations are in progress by their renters. Renters violating noise regulations in a property without a bar-code will also allow the Police and the Town of Ocean City rental authority to issue a citation for not having a license.
Please be respectful of your neighbors. It is unlawful for any person to make, cause, or continue any loud, unnecessary, unnatural or unusual noise, or any noise which annoys, disturbs, injures or endangers the comfort, repose, health, peace and safety of others at any time, day or night. Ocean City strongly enforces its ordinance that no disruptive noises be made between 12 midnight and 7 a.m. in such a manner as to be heard at a distance of 50 feet from the building or structure which it is located.
Maryland Motor Vehicle Law and Ocean City Town Ordinance state that no loud noise from a vehicle may be heard at a distance of 50 feet from the vehicle at any time. The Association has no enforcement authority - call the police Communications Center at 410-723-6600 to report violations of the Ocean City Noise Regulations or Maryland Law. If you believe criminal activity is in progress call 911 directly.
