Smart Phone Parking App and More
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Serving as your Mayor for the past six months has truly been an honor. In an effort to keep Miami Beach residents abreast of the latest developments of the City Commission, below are some of our recent initiatives:
ParkMobile Pay by Phone Parking App: we are pleased to announce the launching of our new pay-by-phone mobile parking application, ParkMobile, that will allow residents to use their smart phones to pay for parking without ever having to leave their car and pay at a meter. Registered Miami Beach residents receive a discount on metered parking in South Beach ($1.00 instead of $1.75 an hour). We trust that this will lead to less parking citations being issued!
ParkMe Miami Beach: the ParkMobile app is also linked to the live parking locator app, ParkMe Miami Beach, which provides real time information on municipal parking availabilities throughout the city. Registration information regarding ParkMobile and ParkMe Miami Beach Parking mobile applications is available by clicking here.
New Greenspace: the City Commission approved the creation of a new 20 acre park that can be enjoyed by all Miami Beach residents. The new park will replace the Bayshore Municipal Par-3 Course, located just north of Miami Beach Senior High School, and will be a staple of Miami Beach for years to come. We will continue passing measures to ensure that we maximize the amount of greenspace throughout our community.
Dog Beach Opening: our inaugural Dog Beach was held at the North Shore Open Space Park Beach between 80th and 81st streets. Over 100 dogs and their owners were able to enjoy the beach and swim together in a dedicated area of North Beach. In the coming months, this will become a permanent fixture in North Beach for all to enjoy.
