§ 189-1 Policy.

[Amended 5-30-1995 by L.L. No. 10-1995]
The Town of Southold provides bathing beaches and recreational facilities and parking areas adjacent thereto at various locations within the Town for the use and enjoyment of residents of the Town of Southold. The Town also has many road ends which provide access to the water. The use of such facilities by persons other than residents has increased to such an extent that such facilities have become overcrowded, with the result that residents are denied the use thereof. The Town Board therefore declares it to be the policy of the Town of Southold to restrict and regulate the parking of vehicles in the parking areas adjacent to the bathing beaches, road ends and recreational facilities described in this article in accordance with the provisions hereof.
