National Park Service proposes beach parking fee hike at Sandy Hook

Down the Shore A blog by Justin Auciello About Justin Auciello

A lifelong resident of South Seaside Park, Justin Auciello is a surfer, urban planner, journalist and traveler.
He prefers life in boardshorts and bare feet and aims to live the "endless summer," which he somewhat accomplishes by spending time in Puerto Rico each winter, where he lives with the family of his lovely girlfriend, Andreica, and surfs the northwestern coast of the Isla del Encanto.
But most of all, Justin's insatiable drive is to keep people informed, whether it is covering a breaking news event on Jersey Shore Hurricane News ? a two-way news outlet covering news, traffic and weather that he founded in August 2011 ? or simply educating children about rip current safety during a lazy day on the beach.

The parking fee for beach access at National Park Service's Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook could increase substantially next year if the government approves a proposal.

The daily vehicle rate would increase from $15 to $20, according to a National Park Service FAQ. The fee for seniors or those with access passes would remain the same.
If approved, it would be the first parking fee increase at Sandy Hook since 2012 and the fifth since the establishment of fees in 1983. It also impacts Jacob Riis Park in Gateway National Recreation Area's unit in New York City.
In a release, the National Park Service says that the fee increase "is not a step the park takes lightly."
"This fee increase will help Gateway maintain the services that visitors expect and deserve: clean restroom and shower facilities and keeping visitors safe and resources protected. We are also able to use this money to do things like renovate the Ryan Visitor Center at Floyd Bennett Field and to add a web-cam to the Sandy Hook Lighthouse," the release said.
Anyone can comment on the proposal by emailing Gateway_Fee_increase@nps.gov until September 5.
