Parking in the Goose Rocks Beach area is regulated during the summer season through a parking sticker program because the demand for parking far exceeds the limited number of on-street parking spaces available. Parking stickers are available for daily, weekly, and seasonal use.
Kennebunkport Property Taxpayers
A Property Taxpayer may purchase up to two (2) seasonal parking stickers per year at a cost of $5 each. Annually (in or early April), the Town will mail to each Property Taxpayer a voucher for two (2) Goose Rocks Beach seasonal parking stickers. Vouchers must be presented with payment at the Town Hall to obtain the parking stickers. A Property Taxpayer may purchase additional parking stickers at the rate for Non-Residents.
Kennebunkport Resident Non-Taxpayers
A Long-Term Renter may purchase a seasonal parking sticker at a cost of $5.00. A Long-Term Renter must present documentation of a lease/rental agreement of not less than one (1) year AND a valid Town of Kennebunkport motor vehicle registration at the Town Hall with payment to obtain a sticker. No more than two (2) seasonal parking stickers per year will be issued for any rental property unit. A Long-Term Renter may purchase additional parking stickers at the rates for non-residents.
Non-Kennebunkport taxpayers shall pay $25.00 for daily stickers, $100.00 for weekly stickers, and $200.00 for seasonal stickers. Each sticker shall be permanently affixed to the lower left-hand corner of the rear window of a vehicle. Any sticker not permanently affixed in that location shall be considered void and a violation of these regulations and the Kennebunkport Traffic and Parking Control Ordinance. Daily and weekly stickers are available for purchase from two kiosks at Goose Rocks Beach. Kiosks are located at the Proctor Avenue entrance to the beach and outside of the Goose Rocks Beach General Store. Seasonal stickers will need to be purchased through the Town Clerk's Office at Town Hall.
Hotels, Inns, and Rental Properties
Hotels, inns, owners of rental properties (including room rentals) shall be allowed to purchase, for resale to their customers, daily and weekly stickers for $25.00 and $100.00 each, respectively. Stickers must be marked with a laundry marking pen or other indelible markers to show the date or dates for which they are issued, and each sticker must be permanently affixed to the lower left-hand corner of the rear window of a vehicle. If these conditions are not met, the sticker will be considered void. The establishment selling the sticker is responsible for recording guest information, including the license plate number of the vehicle intended to use the sticker, and the day or week for which the sticker is issued and explaining to the customer the beach and parking rules and regulations.
The Town reserves the right to deny issuance of any Goose Rocks Beach parking sticker (i) to a Property Taxpayer who is in arrears in payment of property tax; (ii) to a Long-Term Renter who has not paid current vehicle excise tax; or (iii) for any vehicle that has an outstanding parking ticket(s) until said parking ticket is paid in full.
Adopted by the Kennebunkport Board of Selectmen on February 3rd, 2022 in accordance with Section 13.II of the Kennebunkport Traffic and Parking Control Ordinance.
