Seasonal parking stickers are available for purchase by the public for $50 at the Atlantic Beach Town Hall during normal business hours.
Atlantic Beach property owners may park for free during the summer by displaying the permanent green re‑entry permit on their dashboard. Local Atlantic Beach renters may obtain a parking sticker at no charge from Town Hall with proof of residency.
The 2018 paid parking program will run from May 12 through August 26, daily from 10AM to 6PM, at $2/hour accepting credit/debit cards only.
The paid parking revenue assists in funding for beach services which include: a 7-day-a-week, paid summer lifeguard program which was affected by the withdrawal of annual lifeguard-funding contributions by the county, the operation and maintenance of three public beach access bathhouses, daily garbage/refuse pickup and disposal along a five-mile beachfront and various free summer recreation programs activities like the AB Beach Music Festival, July Fourth Fireworks, and the family outdoor movie nights; and the traffic safety enforcement for a summer population that approaches 50,000. These funds ensure that such tourist-related beach services are not fully subsidized by the local property taxpayers.
