TOWN OF SOUTHOLD
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DATE: April 27, 2020
CONTACT: Southold Town Supervisor Scott A. Russell
RE: Parking at Town Beaches and Road Ends
The Town of Southold today announced that, effective immediately, swimming will be prohibited at Town beaches until further notice. The Town also announced congregating on beaches is also prohibited and that parking at Town Beaches and road ends will be limited to vehicles with Town Resident Parking Permits only. Supervisor Scott Russell said “With warmer weather coming, we want to ensure that our beaches are enjoyed by the public in a safe manner that encourages social distancing.” Supervisor went on to state that he felt the changes were necessary since the State already put in a place a prohibition against swimming and a plan for reduced parking at State beaches and parks. Police Chief Martin Flatley stated that Town beaches will be monitored by Traffic Control Officers and that Resident Parking Permits only requirements will be strictly enforced.
The Town also announced that Resident Parking Permits that expired on December 31, 2019 shall be valid until June 15, 2020 to allow Residents more time to renew their permits. Supervisor Russell believes that because of the disruption of COVID-19 in our daily lives, it is only fair to give people an extended period of time to renew their permits.
People can also apply for permits online or by mail through the Southold Town Clerk’s Office. For any questions, please call the Clerk’s Office at (631) 765-1800.
Furthermore, Supervisor Russell states that the drive through at the Southold Town Annex will soon be open so people can be able to apply in person. The date of the opening will be announced shortly.
