The City of Stamford announced that Stamford residents with vehicles registered in Stamford can now purchase $25 beach stickers online at http://www.stamfordct.gov/cashiering-permitting/pages/beach-sticker. This season will run from May 1, 2016 to September 30, 2016.

“I want to make access to beach stickers as easy as possible. The majority of Stamford residents can now purchase them online,” said Mayor David Martin. “This is still in pilot phase, but we are hoping to save many people a trip to the Government Center if all they need to do is purchase a regular beach sticker.”

To purchase a beach sticker through the mail, send a copy of your motor vehicle registration, a stamped, self-addressed envelope and payment by check to the Cashiering and Permitting Department.

Stamford residents over the age of 62 with vehicles registered in Stamford are eligible for a discounted $7 beach sticker. Present your motor vehicle license as proof of age.

Stamford residents with cars not registered in Stamford must pay $110 for a beach sticker


Non-residents can purchase a beach sticker for $250 for weekdays only.

Friday at 5 Commentary by Ops2: My random review of what's happened and what might be happening....

You asked for more and I'm delivering....This blog post is different than my usual post.  I'm starting a series of 4  "conversational" blog posts.  Hope you like...this is more like a simple summary from my head of what has happened around the downtown recently and maybe a bit of what to look forward to,

So not a lot happened in January.  Except, we had our first snow of the year, which threw us for a loop. We were all whining about the warm weather, and lack of winter,  and then we WACKed with snow. We didn't get it as bad as NYC and good thing it quickly warmed up. All the snow melted.

The groundhog indicated to us to expect an early spring.  It began to feel like spring, and then not! Then came ice, then wind, then more snow, then marginal warmth.  Ugh. Gotta love it.

What I think of February so far....Well, I'm looking forward to going out to a new restaurant for Winter Restaurant week.  I think this time I'll try some Mexican/South western cuisine, perhaps Cantina.  The Advocate wrote a piece about the other day.  It's always nice to dine on Bedford Street cause it's so easy to do dinner and then catch a movie at the Avon.  I've been wanting to see Anomalisa, which seems like it would be a cool animated movie.
A few weeks ago I was able to check out all the showings for the nominated shorts and animated shorts (also playing at the Avon Theater.) Emotionally moving: No Disneyland happy ending, which is what you think when you plan to sit for an animated film.   I expect Anomalisa to be the same kind of different.    Check out the whole schedule here.  

That's my short take on Jan & Feb so far...
Got an idea or debate that you'd like me to expand upon, shoot me an email ops2@stamford-downtown.com  #stamforddowntown
