Innovative Parking Technology Helps with Parking in Ellicott City

Howard County residents and visitors are encouraged to download the Parker‚ĄĘ App to locate available parking spaces in Downtown Ellicott City.

This new smart phone app allows shoppers and visitors to Historic Ellicott City to more easily locate available parking with their smartphone.

NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD!

The parking solution called ParkerTM directs travelers in real time to open parking spots just like a GPS provides directions to Ellicott City itself.

The App is available at Google Play or the iTunes Store.

MAIN STREET meters and the Parker App are part of the County’s Ellicott City parking management program to allow greater public access to the downtown district while simultaneously accommodating the needs of residents and businesses.

12 01 2013

Here at Pam Long Photography we are fortunate enough to have two of the most wonderful landlords you will ever meet! We are blessed to know Debbie and Ron and we were thrilled when they chose us to have portraits taken of their talented, beautiful grandchildren.

Brooke is 13, captain of her cheer team and an incredible singer.  Joshua is 15 and plays baseball!  They both love to hunt and fish. It was a joy to work with both of these kind and mature young people. They were such a pleasure to work with! They were so sweet not only toward us, but toward each other. We have no doubt that they will go far! Debbie, Ron, Joshua and Brooke, thank you for coming to Pam Long Photography!  It is wonderful to work with you all!
