On-Street Parking Season Pass

This summer, the Town is introducing a Season Pass for paid on-street parking at Bay Beach for the upcoming summer beach season. These passes will be available for $50 (taxes included). 

In order to purchase a $50 on-street parking pass for this summer, patrons can access these passes by filling out the online form and paying by Mastercard/VISA.  The form will give you an option for pick up or mailing the passes out.  Anyone can purchase up to 50 of these passes at one time.  Passes are not specific to a license plate/car/person.  

The municipal parking lots as well as the on-street parking areas will also have pay and display machines for daily / hourly paid parking passes. Credit or cash is accepted at these terminals.

Residents who were eligible for the free parking passes due to their property circumstances will be mailed their passes shortly. This year, there will not be a need to reapply. Residents will be receiving communications prior to June 18th regarding plates numbers and mailing addresses. 

The following streets were removed from the paid parking perimeter. If you received free passes last year, and your residence is on one of the following streets, passes will not be issued this year.
