Effective July 2011, the City Commission adopted an ordinance to allow the operation of golf carts upon designated streets in the City of Dunedin.  A few simple rules must be followed to allow golf cart owners to travel on the street.  View the flyer: Golf Cart Flyer.

Golf carts operated on City streets must be registered with the City for such operation.  Registration is made at the Planning & Development Department located at 737 Louden Avenue between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  You do not need an appointment.  Please complete the following application and provide the following items:
