Delray Beach residents will have the option to buy beach parking permits for only half a year.
Beachgoers previously could only purchase an annual permit for $94.50. The permit allows them to park in the city’s five beach-area parking lots.
But city commissioners gave first approval on March 3 to also sell six-month parking permits for $47.70 starting April 1. The ordinance is expected to pass at a final March 31 hearing.
Seniors age 62 and over also will have the option of a six-month permit for $50.35 that allows them to also park along Ocean Boulevard without paying the meters.
