Lancaster Parking Authority Upgrading On-Street Multi-Space Kiosks

January 23, 2015 - The Lancaster Parking Authority (LPA) has entered into an agreement with Cale America (pronounced Cal-lay) to supply 26 new multi-space parking kiosks for the Downtown Investment District.

The kiosks will replace the units that were first deployed in the city nearly five years ago. The change is taking place at this time to provide a more dependable unit, better coordination with city enforcement, strengthened security features, and the ability for future technology enhancements, including a "pay by phone" option.

Energy Efficient Lighting in All LPA Garages

The relighting of Lancaster Parking Authority's garages is one of those proverbial "win-wins," Larry Cohen, Executive Director of the Lancaster Parking Authority enthuses. The replacement of the 2,400 fixtures in all five of the city's public garages provide better, brighter lighting and make the garages safer. It will cost less to power and maintain the fixtures, and the project reduces the authority's environmental impact. We'll reap the benefit of this for probably the next 20 years," Cohen said. It is the first authority-wide lighting replacement done in the garages. Some of the fixtures replaced were original to the garages, the oldest of which were built four decades ago.
