Cocoa Beach Parking Passes

Cocoa Beach residents are confused by the city’s parking passes timeline. So here are the answers to the burning questions.

Due to damage to City Hall and IT department, 2017 parking passes remain valid through January 2018, new 2018 parking passes will go into effect February 1st, 2018. Annual passes are $10.00/year for city residents (city absorbs the $50.00 difference as the actual cost is $60.00/year for all including other non-city residents (can be from anywhere, even Kalamazoo Michigan and get an annual parking pass for $60.00/year!)

The city recoups part of the cost of providing public services (including beach clean-up, maintenance, and replacement of dune crossovers) and responding to public safety calls (police and emergency rescue) through parking revenues.

Parking Permits Available:

  • Residents for $10.00 per calendar year.
  • Non-residents $60.00 per calendar year.

Permits are not for use in Alan Shepard Park, Sidney Fischer Park, or to extend 90-minute parking.

Documentation needed for a parking permit:

  • Proof of residency
  • Vehicle Registration
  • Driver’s License

Cash or checks are the only form of payment accepted.

    Can you buy a 2018 parking permit now

    Hmmmmm. I am not quite sure what the confusion is. The parking permit rules are pretty self explanatory. You pay your fee per car per calendar year and you can park basically any where on city roads or lots where parking is allowed. We had a hurricane which damaged the computer system. So they extended to 2017 permits for a month. PLEASE tell me what is confusing about that.

    If you own property in CB and pay taxes can you get a resident permit?

    This blog creates confusion. I think it’s because it’s from out of town. Those of us who live here know what’s really going on and are not confused at all.

    Thanks for clearing things up for people who weren’t sure if they could park in the city beach parking lots. I plan to buy a parking permit next year for the first time and now know to wait until February 2018. I guess I’ll lose out of one month (January) parking now.
