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.
Seasonal parking stickers are available to Kennebunkport taxpayers at a cost of $5.00 per vehicle. In order to qualify for the resident sticker an individual must either pay property taxes on property in Kennebunkport or be a resident of Town and pay excise taxes to the Town on a motor vehicle registered in his/her name. Individuals paying property taxes to the Town may obtain parking stickers for more than one vehicle so long as each vehicle is registered in his/her name. Individuals seeking residential stickers shall provide a copy of the vehicle registration for each residential sticker issued. In circumstances where ownership of the property is dispersed among multiple people it is the individual’s responsibility to provide proof of ownership interest to the Town. The sticker shall be permanently affixed to the lower left-hand corner of the rear window of the vehicle to which it is issued. Any sticker not permanently affixed in that location shall be considered void and a violation of these regulations and Kennebunkport Traffic and Parking Control Ordinance.
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 the vehicle to which it is issued. Any sticker not permanently affixed in that location shall be considered void and a violation of these regulations and 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 re-sale to their customers, daily and weekly stickers for $23.00 and $100.00 each, respectively. Stickers must be marked with a laundry marking pen or other indelible marker 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 the vehicle to which it is issued. If these conditions are not met, the sticker will be considered void. The establishment selling the sticker is responsible for recording the license plate number of the vehicle, the sticker number, the day or week for which the sticker is issued and explaining to the customer the beach and parking rules and regulations.
It shall be the policy of the Town of Kennebunkport to deny the issuance of any Goose Rocks Beach Parking Sticker to a registered vehicle that has an outstanding parking ticket(s) until said parking ticket fine(s) has been paid in full.
Adopted by the Kennebunkport Board of Selectmen on March 24, 2005 in accordance with Section 13.II of the Kennebunkport Traffic and Parking Control Ordinance.
