Parking services

Our Goals

The mission of the Parking Services Department is to provide safe, clean and well-managed public parking facilities. We pride ourselves in maintaining parking meters and pay stations in good working order and equitably enforcing the Town’s parking regulations to ensure that you can relax while in Town. Our Parking Ambassadors are professionals and capable of assisting you with any parking-related matter.

Our Pay-By-Plate parking system has 772 parking spaces at 28 separate locations. Three options are available to pay the meter:

  • Cash and credit card at pay stations
  • Coins at parking meters
  • Pay-By-Phone App on your iOS or Android phone

We offer a variety of parking permit programs such as discounted parking to residents through the resident parking permit system, employee permits to Town businesses, hardship permits to certain businesses, and parking sponsorships for the adoption of parking spaces.

Parking Against Traffic Prohibited

Florida law requires drivers to park in the direction of traffic flow, which prohibits you from backing into angled parking spaces. If you back your vehicle into an angled parking spot anywhere in the Town, you will be cited for illegal parking.

Park Within the White Lines

The lines for all parking spaces are painted white. You will be cited if your vehicle is not within the lines of the parking space.
