RESIDENT REGISTRATION – Free parking is available to residents that live within the city limits of the City of Jacksonville Beach; residents’ vehicles (license plates) must be registered through DHSMV to an address inside these city limits. 

In order to qualify for this free parking benefit, residents must submit a request either in person or on-line.  In-person requests are received at the Jacksonville Beach Police Department (Monday through Friday, between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M.) or at Utility Billing in City Hall (Monday through Friday, between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M.).  Online requests are available by clicking here or copying and pasting this link into your browser: http://www.jacksonvillebeach.org/government/departments/police/services-division/parking/residential-parking-program.

The registration process could take up to 14 business days in order to verify license plate information and residency, and to input into the system.  Once the registration process is complete, an e-mail confirmation will be sent.  If the license plate is not registered to an address within the city limits, an email notification will be sent.

* If you registered your vehicle(s) in 2019 and received confirmation of your registration as a resident, you do not need to register again in 2020.
