New Smyrna Beach boat ramp parking permit rollout to begin May 1, 2018

City of New Smyrna Beach, FL (April 27, 2018) – The City of New Smyrna Beach installed parking kiosks at three boat ramp parking locations for May 1, 2018 program for boat trailer parking program fees. Residents of Volusia County and all Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) counties are eligible for a free permit.


Residents in the FIND District (Florida Inland Navigation District – which includes 12 counties, Volusia County being one of them) are eligible for a free boat ramp parking permit. http://www.aicw.org/counties/index.php At the present time, if you have a current New Smyrna

Beach lot parking permit, you are not required to obtain an additional permit for your vehicle to park at the boat ramp. You must be driving the permitted vehicle.


WHEN: Beginning May 1, drivers who park their vehicle with boat trailer in one of the City’s three boat ramp parking lots are to obtain a boat ramp parking permit. New Smyrna Beach, Volusia County and FIND District residents are eligible for free boat ramp parking permits but must apply for a permit online beginning May 1, 2018. There is a one month ‘grace’ period before fines are issued starting on June 1, 2018.

HOW: The permit is electronic and no paper or sticker will be issued. The permit is good for vehicles with boat trailers connected at the lot.  A vehicle without a trailer may only park in the limited single space spots and no trailers are to be left without a vehicle.  Trailers left unattached to a vehicle are subject to a ticket and fine.
