SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Seaside Heights officials have voted to approve an ordinance that will change some beach and boardwalk regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that beachgoers will no longer be allowed access to the beach after 9 p.m. After that time, the beaches will be closed and gates will be locked.

Visitors will also be prohibited from being on the boardwalk between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m.

On weekends and holidays beachgoers will need to have a beach badge to have access to the beach after 6 p.m.

Other restrictions will prohibit large tents and umbrellas. Those tents and umbrellas will also need to be secured so that they cannot fly away and injure people.

Smoking of any kind, including vaporizers or e-cigarettes, will also be prohibited.

Town officials say the purpose of the changes is make the beach more family-friendly and to cut down on rowdy behavior.
