Mobile Payments for Parking Meters

Parkmobile,LLC brings Mobile Payments for Parking to the Borough of New Hope, PA

ParkingMeters
Parkmobile mobile payments system will be available at all on-street meters and at the Borough’s New Street parking lot, where a kiosk-type parking meter is also available.
Privately owned parking lots are not participating at this time.

The new service is an alternative to using coins at the meters, and will be fully deployed by August 1st.

Customers will be able to pay for parking from their smartphones by downloading Parkmobile’s mobile apps for iPhone, Android, Windows, Blackberry, and Amazon Fire smartphones.

Parkmobile’s mobile payment system is simple and easy to use.
Customers can register online at www.parkmobile.com or by downloading the mobile app in their phone’s app store.
Once registered, they may use the mobile app, Internet, or a toll-free number to pay for parking.
Once a customer’s account is set up, they can instantly begin using the system with their registered mobile phone.

Using a wireless handheld device, enforcement officers will know that a motorist has paid with the Parkmobile app, so customers should not worry if the meter does not change to reflect their time.

As an added bonus, mobile app users have the option to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to the expiration of their parking session.
Time limits on meters still apply and the Parkmobile app will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters.

July 3rd Concert Under the Stars

Riverside Symphonia’s Concert Under the Stars in Tinicum Park Moves to Friday July 3

One of Bucks County’s most popular summer events, the “Concert Under the Stars” will take place in Tinicum Park on Friday, July 3rd this year. Everything else remains the same for this very popular 4th of July holiday event. Gates will open for picnic suppers at 6 pm and the Symphonia will take the stage at 8 pm for an evening of pops, fine classical, and patriotic music. As in years past, the evening will end with a magnificent fireworks finale set to music.

CUTS Fireworks (2)
“The concert has been held on the Saturday closest to the 4th of July for many years but this year, in order to hold the fireworks finale, we had to move the event to Friday, July 3rd,” said Executive Director Cheryl Luginbuhl. “Everything else people enjoy about this evening is the same, and we hope that with Friday being a Federal holiday, people will turn out to celebrate America’s Birthday with us as they always do. We’ve seen a trend as an increasing number of people return year after year with more friends and family.” Indeed, picnics of all shapes and sizes are planned well in advance each summer. From small baskets on blankets to tables set with red, white, and blue table linens and delicious picnic fare, the picnics on display have become as much fun to watch as the concert, itself, as hundreds turn out to enjoy a relaxing evening of music and community in the park.

The Riverside Symphonia is a professional orchestra that presents 5 main stage performances yearly across the greater Delaware River Valley. For 25 years, the orchestra has been a part of the area’s rich cultural heritage. The “Concert Under the Stars” helps to provide funds for the orchestra’s season, its senior outreach program and its education efforts. The Thompson Organization in Doylestown has been a long time supporter and presenter of the event. Other sponsors include Pine Run Retirement Community, First National Bank and Trust Company of Newtown, and Kurfiss-Sotheby’s International Realty. Media sponsors include the Bucks County Herald, the Intelligencer, Icon Magazine, and Cantor Design.

Tickets to the “Concert Under the Stars” are available at
www.riversidesymphonia.org or by calling the box office 609-397-7300, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5 pm. Tickets are $20 in advance for adults and $25 at the gate; $10 for students ages 7 to 18; children 6 and under are free. VIP parking passes are available for a $60 additional donation if purchased at least 10 days in advance. General parking is free and handicapped parking (with a sticker) is available. The Park requests no dogs, barbecues or tiki torches, please. Tickets are nonrefundable.

To our GNHCC family….the Board of Directors of the Greater New Hope Chamber of Commerce wish to thank each member for using their right to vote in the elections tonight, for the new executive directors of the GNHCC. Tonight was a historical moment where the members said “we want a change” from the past. You said “we want transparency, we want to work with others, and we want you, the GNHCC board of directors, to deliver a message of progress and of moving forward…not backwards.

We want to thank all of those that ran for office tonight. Each and every person, that ran for office, had the respect and talent to make this chamber one of the best in the state of Pennsylvania. Now we simply ask that our members give us the time to prove that we can do this for you, to become one of the best. It begins with respect, which has to be earned. So, we, at the GNHCC, have our work cut out for us. And we believe that as we gain respect, success for our businesses and community will soon follow.

Our door is now open to all groups and people that wish to help promote the Greater New Hope area. There are no barriers standing between any of us. So please do not hesitate to get involved in “your” chamber, and support our mission. We will welcome that.
