We have created a new Hot Topic page to provide additional background information about the parking situation on the island. Click here: https://holdenbeachpoa.com/hot-topics/parking/. One of the questions we address is “how many current public parking spots do we have?” We counted the cars and vehicles with trailers shown on Google Maps (which appears to be from a typical peak season day) and came up with 460 cars plus 43 vehicles with trailers parked between the bridge and the east end of the island. Click here to see the pictures. There is also a large private parking lot at the pier with 77 spaces.
The next Parking Committee Meeting is this Friday, March 5th, at 10:00 AM. It will be live-streamed on the Town’s Facebook page. Vendors who provide paid parking services have been invited to describe the new technology available. The meeting agenda and packet are available here.
