  1. I’m local and buy an annual Beach parking pass each year for $120, going up to $130 next year. Parking is $2.50 per hour now, going up to $3.00 next year. If you only park an hour per week it’s worth getting an annual pass. I can park in any beach lot, except for Stern’s wharf, all day. Strangely, when I do park in a downtown lot, the attendants always wave me through when exiting when they see the decal on the windshield.
