Residential Parking Permits and Vehicle Tax Decals

Purchasing Parking Permits and Vehicle Tax Decals 

Property owners in Wrightsville Beach are eligible to purchase up to 2 residential parking permits (hang tags) for $35 each. Permits can be purchased at the Parking Office at 321 Causeway Drive.  In the event an owner releases residential parking permits to a tenant, the tenant will need to submit a notarized letter application form provided by the Town (attached in a link below) specifying the number of permits requested.  Non-metered streets on Harbor Island will be parking by residential parking permit and/or vehicle identification decal only.  These areas are enforced from May 1 - September 15th from 9am to 6pm.

Vehicle tax decals may also be purchased from the Lanier Parking office.  This annual license tax, required per Town ordinances 70.35 - 70.39, is to be paid annually on or before the first day of April of each year.  Vehicle tax decals also serve as identification for re-entry onto Wrightsville Beach in the event of a mandatory evacuation.  It's important to purchase your vehicle tax decal before April.  Sale of the decals ceases when a hurricane warning is issued.     
   
 Notorized Residential Parking Permit Application

 Applicants for a Residential Parking Permit will need to show one of the following:
  • A driver's license that matches the Town's property tax listing
  • Another form of identification that identifies the individual as the property owner
  • If you lease a property, a notarized residential parking permit application from the property owner giving permission to obtain that property's allocation of passes is required.
  • If you lease a property that is handled by a property management group a notarized letter from the management group will be required in order to release the residential parking permits to the tenant.
  • If a property is a multi-family unit registered as a single property, the property is eligible for only 2 passes.
  • For each residential parking permit purchased, a vehicle tax decal must also be purchased with the residential parking permit if the owner of the vehicle resides in the Town for a period of 30 days (permanent or temporary residence) or if the vehicle is stored in the Town for any purpose either when in use or not in use.
  • If you are not purchasing a residential parking permit, vehicle tax decals will still be required if the owner of the vehicle resides in the Town for a period of 30 days (permanent or temporary residence) or if the vehicle is stored in the Town for any purpose either when in use or not in use.
