Town officials will propose at this spring’s Town Meeting to create a special parking district at White Horse Beach, Assistant Town Manager Derek Brindisi told residents at a meeting Wednesday night at the Plymouth Public Library. Fine in the new parking district would be up to $50, the maximum allowed by state law, he said.  The typical parking fine in Plymouth is $15, which has proven to be little deterrent to visitors looking to spend a day at the beach.

Summer by White Horse Beach has its charms, except when it comes to parking. Many residents, both seasonal and year-round, live in landlocked cottages packed against the beach.

Some residents on those side streets put up traffic cones to deter beach goers from parking in front of their homes. Many residents find themselves having to park far from their houses, sometimes when they’re loaded with groceries. Continue Reading →
