You live in Stamford. Your car is registered in Stamford. Should you use the free beach?

Stamford — If you live in Stamford and your car is registered in the city, should you be allowed to park on the beaches for free?

The Board of Representatives’ Parks and Recreation Committee held preliminary discussions about the idea, which was put forward by City Reps Megan Cottrell, D-4, and John Zelinsky, D-11.

“Over the years I’ve served on board, my own constituents, and even others in the city of Stamford, have always complained about paying for beach stickers,” Zelinsky told the meeting Tuesday evening. “They thought their taxes were too high and they should be able to do that. I tried to look into it for years, but (it) never succeeded.

Zelinsky said he recently became aware of Norwalk’s beach pass policy. Parks and Public Property Superintendent Ken Hughes, speaking to Stamford Advocate on Wednesday, said residents there can park on beaches for free if their car is registered in Norwalk and their plate number is in the city system.

And Cottrell noted during Tuesday’s committee meeting that cars registered in Connecticut can park in state parks for free. Instead of paying a parking fee, car owners pay the required $5 per year through their car registration with the state.

Cottrell said he believes Stamford residents should be able to park on the city’s beaches at no charge – but only if their car is registered in Stamford.
