Coming next week: My fact-filled blog post titled with the latest about Hollywood Beach parking and the quest for new parking garages or a better way of managing the number of cars on the beach - "#HollywoodBeachFL Quality of Life vs. Economics: New solutions for an old problem - public parking. Finding just the right balance between the goals of tweaking the city's economic engine -tourism- to give tourists a positive experience and keep them coming back, and Hollywood Beach residents' desire to maintain their Quality of Life."
Recent press release issued by the City of Hollywood,
New Beach Parking Rates Go Into Effect May 1st
Register Now to Get the Resident Rate
To keep beach parking affordable for Hollywood residents, the City is offering a resident parking rate. Residents must register their vehicle(s) annually with the Parking Division to enjoy an hourly parking rate of $1.50 per hour Monday through Thursday and $2.00 per hour Friday through Sunday and on holidays. This rate is 50% less than the new non-resident rate of $3.00 per hour Monday through Thursday and $4.00 per hour Friday through Sunday and on holidays. The new non-resident parking rates will go into effect May 1, 2017.
Once registered, you will be given a “resident rate code” for use at City-operated multi-space master meter parking spots. Registration is free and can be done in-person or online. The following documents are required to register:
• Driver’s license
• Vehicle registration
• One of the following: lease agreement, utility bill, voter ID card or tax bill with current Hollywood address
To Register online: Upload scanned images or photos of the required documents to the Parking Portal and select “Get Permits.”
To Register in-person: Bring copies of the required documents to the Parking office located at 2600 Hollywood Boulevard in the City Hall West Annex Building.
Using the Parkmobile Application
Once you have your resident rate code, you will need to register your vehicle with Parkmobile to receive the resident parkingrate. You can sign up for Parkmobile by visiting http://us.parkmobile.com/ or by calling the toll-free number 877.727.5714. You must register with the City of Hollywood in order to receive the resident rate through Parkmobile.
If you are already a Parkmobile user, you still will need to register your vehicle(s) with the City to automatically receive the City of Hollywood resident rate when you use the Parkmobile App. Be sure to use the same phone number when you register.
• Please allow up to 24 hours/next business day for resident rate processing and up to 20 days for Parkmobile processing.
• At single-space parking meters, the resident rate can only be applied when using the Parkmobile Application.
• Resident rate code is not valid in private garages, lots or meters
Don’t wait to get your resident rate code! Log on today or stop by the Parking Office. Parking on Hollywood beach.
