Signs on Warrior Way say no beach parking.

Signs on Warrior Way say no beach parking.

For the first time, “No Parking” signs will line both sides of Highway 50 in each direction from the new stoplight installed by the Nevada Department of Transportation at Warrior Way.

Douglas County will have limited paid parking on Warrior Way, Zephyr Cove Park, Zephyr Cove Elementary School, and George Whittell High School.

The parking will also allow for additional sanitation facilities. Payments will be accepted using your handheld phone/personal device through a QR code or text message. Douglas County residents will be exempt from any parking charges to use the Warrior Way parking area. License plate readers will be installed to monitor compliance.

Flexible parking rates.  (through Aug. 31)

$20 per day-(Weekday Monday through Friday)

$40 weekend- (non-holiday, non-high demand)

$100 holiday and high demand

Flexible rates will be adjusted based on demand in order to reduce capacity and impacts on Zephyr Cove Beach.

“Douglas County is committed to ensuring the safety and enjoyment of all beachgoers,” officials said. “The new parking regulations and paid parking options aim to reduce beach congestion, improve sanitation, and enhance overall safety. The fees for parking in these new areas will be flexible and on-demand depending on usage. Douglas County is asking beach goers to plan ahead and research parking options prior to visiting the beaches.”

This program will involve collaboration between Douglas County and the Douglas County School District, utilizing land owned by both entities. This pilot program will help determine the long-term viability and potential expansion of a Douglas County parking program.
