New Enhancements to ParkMobile

The City of St. Petersburg and Parkmobile, LLC have partnered on new enhancements to the Parkmobile mobile payments program. Effective immediately, the new Resident Discount Program will allow registered St. Pete residents to use the app to pay for parking in the city without having to pay a convenience fee of .35 cents per transaction. Parkmobile’s mobile payments solution is currently offered in over 1,800 on-street parking spaces throughout the city and will soon be available in all public parking city-owned surface lots.

To sign up for the Resident Discount Program, residents with a Parkmobile account must submit 2 out of 3 of the following documents referencing a St. Petersburg address to StPeteResidents@parkmobileglobal.com; a valid photo ID, valid vehicle registration, or valid proof of residency. Once residency documents have been approved, an email will be sent within 3 business days confirming the discount has been applied to the resident’s account.

Two additional enhancements include:

  • An increase to the on-street parking duration from 2-3 hours to a 6-hour max for an additional charge.
  • The ability to donate through the app to the St. Pete Power of Change Donation program benefiting the homeless. Anyone wishing to contribute to the program may use Zone 2000 in the app to choose their level of giving, with no Parkmobile transaction fee.

City Starts Accepting TIF Grant Fund Applications May 31 

St. Petersburg will begin accepting applications for Tax Increment Financing, or TIF, Grants designated for the South St. Petersburg Community Redevelopment Area on May 31. Designed to help boost private investment by property owners and/or businesses in commercial and multifamily residential development, TIF funding is an important component of an innovative, 30-year revitalization plan for South St. Pete -- an area generally between 4th St. and 49th St., from 2nd Ave. N. to 30th Ave. S.

CRA TIF funding for this first year includes about $282,000 for Business and Workforce Development and about $188,000 for Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization. 

More information and applications for each of the five financial programs are available online, at www.stpete.org/SouthsideCRA. A brief “CRA White Board” video illustrating the community redevelopment program and this grant funding process is available for viewing, at https://youtu.be/LLHiGXeTHCw.
