- Apply to the Town where the residency for special rates will be verified and Coupon Code provided for each plate you wish to register.
- Use the Coupon Code on the Premium system to facilitate registration and billing.
According to an update from Mayor Craig Bloszinsky, Kure Beach’s paid parking enforcement begins April 7 and runs through September 30, 2021; however, there will be a grace period through April 21 while people become accustomed to paid parking.
Kure Beach Town Council voted in favor of paid parking at its meeting February 1st to share the costs of increasing traffic through the town, beach replenishment, and to support the lifeguard program.
The cost for visitors is $5.00 an hour and $20.00 a day.
People who live locally can get a parking pass for $20.00 and are allowed two per household. A yearly pass is also available to the public for $200.00.
