Exactly... a gated community owns and maintains their streets. Once they are annexed by the city, no more gate allowed. If passes are issued to anyone, then why even have the gate? If you live on a city street, then you cannot expect to be allowed to gather data on who uses those streets. Getting license plates, giving passes and (maybe) expecting them to be returned upon exit (thus able to know how long someone was in that area) is gathering data on people's use of city streets. That is not allowed. You can't have your cake and eat it too. If the city pays for the streets' maintenance, you cannot have gated security/data collection.
