Surf City Key Card Info
The Key Card will serve as your "key to the town" and will expedite access back into Surf City after an evacuation after a disaster. Key Cards will only be issued to Island residents (owners, long term renters) and property managers. If you are a resident of the Mainland portion of Town, you will not need a Key Card.
For clarification, a "long term renter" is any person who rents a residence from another party, for a contractual period of at least 6 months.
Each Island property owner will be issued two Key Cards. In those situations where one individual owns multiple properties on the Island, all of the property information will be associated with the two issued Key Cards. This lowers the amount of cards that would otherwise need to be printed, and only requires the owner to keep up with two Key Cards.
Replacement Key Cards can be purchased in instances of loss or damage for a fee of $3.00. In these situations, the lost Key Cards will be "flagged" in our system and will be deactivated. Please note, these "flagged" Key Cards can NOT be used to gain entry to the Island, If you locate a "lost" card, either destroy it, or return it to Town staff. This process ensures the integrity of the system and prevents unauthorized persons for accessing restricted areas.
