Park and Webster streets saw the installation of 40 "smart" parking meters Oct. 6. The Public Works Department installed the meters that feature large digital displays and accept credit cards in addition to coins. If the pilot is successful, the city will consider replacing all 822 meters currently in the city with these "smart" meters.
The three-month pilot has broad support from both the Park Street Business Association (PSBA) and West Alameda Business Association (WABA).
