What are hurricane / beach parking passes?

The City of Gulf issues two passes to all residents and property owners within the city limits of Gulf Shores, AL. In the event of an emergency where areas of Gulf Shores are evacuated, these passes serve to identify those who should be allowed into restricted area(s) at the appropriate time.

These passes also serve as a parking pass at all paid public parking areas.

Every two years, each Gulf Shores resident / property owner should receive two passes during the month of February. These passes are mailed to the billing address on record with Baldwin EMC at no cost to the resident / property owner.
