Q. Would Wrightsville Beach consider selling yearly parking passes for their public lots and metered spaces to New Hanover County residents?

A. According to Tim Owens, the town manager,  Wrightsville Beach provides residents with two parking passes for $25 if they request them. The Board of Aldermen has discussed the idea of having a general parking pass that anyone could purchase in the past, but the board decided not to pursue the general parking pass concept.

    Did he define “resident” as someone who lives in Wrightsville Beach or someone who lives in New Hanover County?

    I just spoke with a representative of Wrightsville Beach. Parking passes are for people who own property in Wrightsville Beach and are not available for residents of New Hanover County.

    I took “New Hanover County residents” to mean those who live outside of Wrightsville Beach. The answer is that town residents can get passes, but not those of us who live in the county but not in the town.
