The City of McAllen has partnered with smart parking management leader NuPark to deliver automated enforcement and citation solutions in an effort to enhance the City’s parking data and operations management. NuPark’s license plate recognition (LPR)-based enforcement platform will seamlessly integrate with the Parkeon pay-by-plate meters that were recently installed in the central downtown district.
NuPark will introduce the latest technology in a cloud-hosted platform to provide real-time and historical parking data using License Plate Recognition (LPR) reads. This data will be used to manage the parking program and enhance the City’s ability to serve the public. In addition, NuPark will provide improved reporting and analytics for future parking improvements.
“What we wanted was for the City to have a very efficient parking enforcement solution that also provides a more convenient way for our customers to pay for citations,” comments City of McAllen Mayor Jim Darling. “NuPark’s innovative solution coupled with full integration with Parkeon made this system the most attractive solution for the city.”
In addition, the real-time data leveraged between the integrated systems will allow patrons to immediately pay and settle citations at the meters through an online portal. The City looks to offer online permit management for constituents in the future.
“The City of McAllen is a progressive city that is at the center of a lot of commerce so it makes sense to focus on better parking management as part of the City’s growth plans,” comments Kevin Uhlenhaker, Co-Founder and CEO of NuPark. “We are pleased to be part of the City’s smart parking plans and look forward to assisting with further developments.”
McAllen is known for its low cost of living, weather that allows for year-round outdoor recreation, and proximity to Mexico. McAllen is also a world-renowned birding location as McAllen is the one location in North America from which some tropical species can be viewed.
