New parking rules coming to Seabrook Beach

(Continued)

For beach residents worried their lack of placards means their kids or grandkids won’t find parking when visiting, Howley said, a little planning may help ease the pain.

“At the beach we share,” she said.

Howley said beach residents often share their driveways with their neighbors. If someone’s having guests to visit when she isn’t, she’s willing to let them park in her driveway, and that scenario has been reversed.

According to the town’s attorney, selectmen have the authority to change the parking ordinance to reflect the new changes, Manzi said. But whether such changes required an advertised public hearing was still an issue for some in the room yesterday, especially former Parking Committee member Paula Wood.

With May right around the corner, Manzi and the selectmen felt the issue had to be dealt with yesterday, with or without a formal public hearing, since ample effort was made to reach out to all involved for input over past months.
