Parking: Baldwin, Bellmore, Merrick, Seaford & Wantagh

Resident Commuter Parking Permits are required for all Hempstead Town-maintained parking spaces in the BALDWIN, BELLMORE, MERRICK, SEAFORD AND WANTAGH LIRR commuter lots. These permits were created in order to prevent non-Town of Hempstead residents from parking in town commuter lots. The fee for a one-year registration is $10. The license period is April 1 to March 31. You must be a Town of Hempstead resident to purchase a Resident Commuter Parking Permit. Town residents who purchase a Resident Commuter Parking Permit may park in any Town-maintained space in the Bellmore, Merrick, Seaford or Wantagh LIRR commuter lots and general commuter spaces at the Baldwin station. (Please note: The separate purchase ($3 for a one-year registration) of a Baldwin Special District Parking Permit is required to park in Baldwin resident only parking spaces.)

If your current address is not listed on the vehicle registration, you will also be required to present proof of residency, such as a utility bill, tax bill, deed to house, or a notarized lease agreement. Your registration will be returned with your parking confirmation. Please make checks or money orders payable to Hempstead Town Clerk. Please enclose a stamped, self-addressed return envelope.
