NAPLES, Fla. A trip to the beach could get more expensive for people living outside of Collier County.
The decision to remove subsidized annual parking stickers for beach parking for out-of-county residents was discussed Tuesday at a commissioner meeting.
Non-resident beachgoers are paying $50 per year for a parking sticker. The city and county could accrue an extra $500,000 by using metered parking, according to a study.
If the city accepts the proposal, beach parking passes for non-residents will end in January.
“That seems reasonable because there’s more traffic, more foot traffic and along with more foot traffic there comes more upkeep,” Naples resident Katie Zajechowski said.
The meeting took place at 9 a.m. at the Board of County Commissioners on 3299 Tamiami Trail East, No. 303.
