Town of Palm Beach News Release

Posted on: May 4, 2018



In order to make it easier for residents and business owners to return to Palm Beach after a hurricane, the Town has started the Hurricane Pass program. Hurricane passes will be available to Town residents, business owners and condominium managers and will expedite the process of returning to the island. Once a storm has passed, emergency managers will send out a notice when it is safe to return. Pass-holders will be able to use dedicated traffic lanes when approaching the security checkpoints. Only residents, business owners, and condominium managers displaying a re-entry placard will be able to use pass-holder lanes. The placards can be obtained in person at the police department’s Crime Scene Unit, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM. They can also be obtained on line, through the Town’s website, at All applicants will need to provide two documents showing their residence or business status.

There is a limit of two placards per residence or per business, and the placards will be good for two years.

Proof of Residency:
• Florida driver’s license or Florida ID card
• Florida voter registration card
• Automobile registration, title, or insurance
• Deed, mortgage, lease, or payment book
• Utility bill (dated within the last 3 months)

Proof of Business:
• Florida driver’s license or Florida ID card
• Business license
