Ocean City officials are asking beach fans for their opinions on how the town should rebuild the resort’s iconic boardwalk. While there are public hearings set for March 7, the town has opened an online poll to gather more input on three options.

The approaches under consideration include an all-wood surface; a wood surface with a plain concrete tram lane; and a wood surface with a concrete tram lane stamped to look like wood.

Repairs and replacements are needed because of years of weathering, and wear accelerated by the trams and other heavy vehicles. The poll is available at http://www.oceancitymd.gov, and at http://www.ococean.com.
