A plan to install parking meters in downtown Amarillo looks to be moving ahead.

As The Amarillo Globe-News reports, city officials have now approved an agreement with a company responsible for developing a comprehensive parking plan for the city center.

At the city commission’s meeting on Aug. 14, council members voted to approve a three-year deal with Parkmobile, LLC. According to the company’s website, Parkmobile has millions of users across North America, in cities like New York, San Francisco, and Denver.

City Manager Jared Miller told the Globe-News that the city will soon start identifying parking zones, in order to “work through the whole process and make sure the system is going to work effectively once we get it running.”
