Beach & Resident Parking Stickers

Resident Parking and Beach Stickers are available at the Town Clerks office during regular business hours and can be applied for at the Online Payments center. Stickers expire on May 31st each year and they must be renewed annually.

To purchase a sticker you must:
  1. Show your car registration, even if you have had a sticker in the past. If the registration does not have a Manchester address, you will be required to show proof of residence. Owners of leased vehicles need to show the registration plus a leasing agreement with their name on it.
  2. Be current on the town's annual street list taken from census returns. If you are not currently listed in the street list, you will be required to show proof of residence and you will be asked to fill out a census form with the required information.

Parking Sticker Fees

Beach stickers, which include two walk-on passes for Singing Beach, cost $35. (The Senior Citizen rate for those 65 and over is $10.) Resident parking stickers, which do not allow summer beach parking, are free.

Sticker Distribution Policies

The Board of Selectmen endorses the following policies for the distribution of beach stickers:

The owner must personally present a copy of the last tax bill, or in the case of a trust of other legally held title, a copy of the document proving the individual to be the owner, along with the vehicle registration.
