When paid parking was introduced to the Beaches Town Center area in 2019, the City designated a specific area along Second Street for registered Neptune Beach residents to park.
In 2022, the Neptune Beach City Council voted to improve the resident parking program. Registered residents now receive a 3-hour validation to park anywhere in the Neptune Beach metered parking area at no cost to them.
In Addition, the City of Atlantic Beach Beach has one resident registration program that is valid in two locations: The Beaches Town Center, and Beach Access Parking at 18th and 19th Streets.
Here are the requirements to use the validation:
- Residents must register their license plates and be approved.
- Residents must park forward-facing in a designated Neptune Beach metered parking space. This validation cannot be used for any off-street (private) lots, valet parking, or on the Atlantic Beach side of the Beaches Town Center.
- Residents must activate their validation upon arrival using a kiosk or the Flowbird Parking mobile app.
Any resident who would like to stay longer than 3 hours has the option to purchase more time when they check in with the kiosk or mobile app.
Residents can register their plates with the form located at nbfl.gov. For those who are unable to use the web form, paper applications are available at Neptune Beach City Hall, 116 First Street.
