CEPD provides update on holiday beach parking
The Captiva Erosion Prevention District will have a beach attendant at the Alison Hagerup Beach parking lot on July 3-5 for the holiday weekend. The lot will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The parking fees are $25 for two hours or $40 for the day. The parking fees are paid through meters with cash and credit card; the parking tickets are not allowed to be transferable at any time.
The lot consists of 40 parking spaces for vehicles, golf carts and motorcycles on a first come, first serve basis. RVs and campers are not authorized to park in the lot, and overnight parking is not permitted.
The CEPD also reminded the public to be respectful of others with social distancing at beach areas. Pick up trash and furniture, and never leave anything on the beach overnight. Maintain space between the sea turtle nests and surf. Avoid using flashlights or flash photography on the beach at night, and fill in holes in the sand. Fires, fireworks and alcohol are prohibited on the beach; pets must be leashed.
