IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM MAYOR BLOSZINSKY ON 2023 PARKING SEASON

Monday, January 23, 2023 - 12:04pm

Dear Citizens and Owners of Kure Beach,

This past week Town Council approved the 2023 Parking Season Rules. Your costs to the program will remain the same at $20 per season per vehicle for the first two vehicles.

There are changes you should be aware of that should increase your convenience.

A new option is a season pass for Carolina Beach free Town parking (not private lots) at $40 per vehicle, you will need to sign up and pay Carolina Beach according to their rules. We will offer Carolina Beach residents season passes at $20 for one vehicle per household, sign-ups will be at our Town Hall. The costs are consistent with the Town charges for each community and will allow better access to all the businesses in the Pleasure Island community. We will also continue to offer our Total Season Pass to non-island residents at the new cost of $225 for the season. Registration for all season passes will begin on February 13, 2023. The parking workshops will be announced by the Administration Staff for anyone needing assistance to sign up in the next few weeks.
