Rehoboth Beach Commissioners Approve Ordinances On Scooters, Buffer for Building Around Lakes

Mar 16, 2013 -- 11:37am

The Rehoboth Beach Board of Commissioners approved a pair of ordinances at their monthly meeting last night.

The Commissioners approved a new ordinance regulating scooters and mopeds by a 6 to 1 vote, with Stan Mills as the lone “no” vote. Under the ordinance, scooter and moped riders will have to pay $40 for a seasonal permit, and will only be allowed to park in designated areas near the Boardwalk in the Central Business District. Mills said he voted against the ordinance because he was more in favor of providing free parking for scooters and mopeds. He says the purpose of the ordinance was to get the scooters off the sidewalks and away from parking at bike racks.

The Commissioners also unanimously approved an ordinance that requires a 10-foot buffer for new buildings near the city’s lakes. Accessory buildings, such as sheds and garages, can no longer be built close to the water’s edge.
