The 2022 beach season is fast approaching and the Officers and Directors of the West Beach Board wanted to provide an information update.
Please be advised that due to continued development in the immediate Beverly Farms and Prides Crossing area, and because of parking lot capacity issues during the last two seasons, the Corporation will not be issuing additional stickers to individuals who live outside the defined “Resident” boundary. That boundary is basically from 510 Hale Street to the Manchester line and from the Wenham line into Beverly Farms. This comprised the East Farms and West Farms school districts as they existed in 1852, the year the Corporation was founded. People within that boundary have deeded rights to the Beach property. Nonresident stickers in the past were provided only by the discretion of the Board. The decision has been made to not issue new nonresident stickers for at least the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
Resident sticker distribution for 2022 will employ the use of an additional website where application information may be forwarded and payment could be made online. There will be provisions for individuals who may not be comfortable using the online method. In the weeks ahead all residents will be mailed a post card detailing the process.
Existing nonresident sticker holders should be receiving a mailer during the first week of April with payment due by May 1. After payment is received, those nonresidents will be mailed a sticker in early May with instructions about where to place it on their vehicles.
