The use of parking meters promotes local commerce by creating frequent turnover of spaces. The constant turnover of spaces assists local businesses by providing convenient and available spaces to their customers. In fact, the City's on-street parking spaces average four turnovers per space each day and the average length of stay is an hour and a half. Visitors coming to the resort seeking longer lengths of stay should consider parking in the City's garages or surface lots.
Parking Meters at the oceanfront are enforced 7 days a week, 24 hours a day from April 1 through October 31. The meters located at 24 ½ and the 300 block of 25th
street are enforced all year long.
Rates are $2.00 per hour, with a $20.00 fine for expired meter violation. This fine doubles to $40.00 if not paid within 14 calendar days.
All meters accept credit cards, debit cards, or coins. Payment may also be made by cell phone via Parkmobile.
What To Look For On The Street
The metered parking spaces are marked with numbers and the word "meter" on the street, located on the driver's side of the vehicle.
See the example of the marked space below.
Use the number of the space you parked in at the multi-space meter for payment. Multi-Space meters are typically located at mid-block.
Each block has informational signage indicating Metered Parking. The sign states that a meter located on the block has three hours maximum parking time.
See sign example below.
Towing at metered spaces from 1st Street to 4th Street begins at 12:00am (Midnight).
Towing at metered spaces from 14th Street to 29th Street begins at 2:30am.
Avoid a Parking Ticket
The Multi-Space or large meters provide a printed receipt with each transaction. Keep this receipt with you as it shows the exact time that the meter will expire, so you can return to your vehicle before a parking ticket is issued.
See the example receipt below. The red box shows the expiration time.
For instructions on how to use the Multi-Space meters, see Parkeon Meter Instructions.
