PEC Summer Passes return for 2024 season

April 29, 2024

April 29, 2024

The PEC Summer Pass program has been renewed for 2024.The program was introduced in 2022 to help manage popular municipally-owned water access points.

The PEC Summer Pass is required to park in designated parking spaces at the end of Bakker Road and Huyck’s Point Road between May 1 and October 31. The municipality will issue warnings to vehicles parked in these spaces without a valid pass between May 1 and May 14. Tickets will be issued as of May 15.

NEW in 2024:

  • In 2024, the pass will only include parking privileges at the ends of Bakker Road and Huyck’s Point Road. Wellington Rotary Beach no longer requires a pass as there is no longer an admission fee to enter this beach.
  • Residents should continue to use their yellow PEC Summer Pass in 2024. This pass remains valid and will expire at the end of 2024. If your vehicle make or licence plate has changed, you will need to register for a new pass.
  • Residents who do not have a valid yellow PEC Summer Pass should register for a new green 2024 PEC Summer Pass. The green pass will be valid for three (3) years and will expire at the end of 2026.

To apply for a new 2024 PEC Summer Pass:

Residents and taxpayers who do not have a valid yellow pass can now register for a 2024 PEC Summer Pass. This is a two-step process:

  1. To apply for a green 2024 PEC Summer Pass, you will need to fill out an online application than can be found at www.thecounty.ca/summer-hub. The application form is now open.
  2. After you have registered, you will need to pick up your pass. To obtain your green 2024 PEC Summer Pass, come in person to a designated pick up location/event (see schedule below) and bring the following proof of eligibility:
  • Proof that you are a resident or taxpayer of the municipality of Prince Edward County. Bring a photo ID that has your County address on it; or if your ID does not have a County address on it, you must also bring a tax bill, water bill, lease agreement or other official document with your name and County address on it.
  • Proof that your vehicle(s) is/are registered to your household (ownership card or insurance card with your name and/or your County address, plus the licence plate for the vehicles you wish to register.)

NOTE: Without proof of residency AND vehicle ownership you will not be given a pass. If you are unsure about whether you have adequate proof or if you are eligible for a pass, contact customer service at 613-476-2148 x 1023 or info@pecounty.on.ca.

 HOW TO USE THE PEC SUMMER PASS

 Bakker Road and Huyck’s Point Road
The PEC Summer Pass is required to park in designated parking spaces at the end of Bakker Road and Huyck’s Point Road between May 1 and October 31.

  • Anyone parking in the designated spaces without a PEC Summer Pass may be fined $100.
  • Anyone parking in the nearby Seasonal No Parking Zones, with or without a pass, may be fined $100.
  • May 1 – 14 will be a “grace period” and all tickets issued for parking in the designated spaces without a pass will be “warning” tickets without a fine. The first day where a pass will be required to park in these spaces will be May 15. This grace period only applies to parking spots designated for pass holders. Cars parked in nearby Seasonal No Parking areas may be ticketed beginning May 1.
  • Pass holders must display their pass on their dashboard or rear-view mirror. The pass must be valid: the licence plate number and vehicle make must match the vehicle that is parked and be visible to the Parking Enforcement Officers.
  • Availability of parking is not guaranteed. Like all parking areas, parking is available to passholders on a first-come, first-served basis.

 The PEC Summer Pass program is part of the 2024 Tourism Management Plan, a municipal plan to ensure a successful summer for residents, businesses and visitors. For more information about the PEC Summer Pass program, the Tourism Management Plan, visit the Summer Hub on the County’s website.
