Parking in Montego Bay

Q: How many cars can an owner park on their lot?
A:  There is no Montego Bay community standard that limits how many cars, boats, enclosed trailers, etc., can be parked on private property.  It was checked out by the President and the OC police.  There is nothing in the Declaration of Restrictions, the Bylaws, or the Town of Ocean City codes that limit how many cars can be parked on private property.  Cars that have valid license plates are allowed on city streets and in Montego Bay.  The Board does not have the authority to have cars removed from private property, or from city streets.

RV Parking: RVs and other oversized vehicles may not park in any municipal lot, public street or alley between June 1 and September 15 of each year by Town Ordinance.  Report violations to the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6610.  RVs and other oversized vehicles may park on private property in Montego Bay throughout the year.
 Boat Trailer Parking:  Boat trailers may not park be parked on public streets, alleys, or public parking lots from May 1 through October 1. A boat trailer may not be ticketed or towed unless a warning notice has been posted on the boat trailer at least 8 hours prior to ticketing or towing.  Report violations to the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6610.  Boat trailers and boats may be parked on private property in Montego Bay throughout the year.

Renters Bar Code
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 rental license.

Ocean City Noise Regulations
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.
