Many streets across the City of Malden require a permit to park on between the hours of 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday. There are several streets on the Everett line where this restriction is in place 24/7. Signs are posted indicating where this is required. This program is intended largely to protect the residents of these streets from losing parking to MBTA commuters or to Everett residents. You can see if your street requires a permit, learn more about the program and apply for a permit here:
Winter parking restrictions will start at the first winter event that takes place that requires our DPW to deploy winter weather operations such as plowing and/or sanding. These rules are intended to assist the city with plowing when it does snow. The rules can be confusing, but the City has developed a great tool to allow you to both view the rules specific to your address.
Please note that when a snow emergency is declared, the City actively tows cars from main arteries and other designated streets. For those seeking parking during snow emergencies, the City makes available school parking lots and at times one of the garages in the downtown. We encourage residents to sign up for our code red system to get notified in advance when a snow emergency is being declared.
The City of Malden begins street sweeping on May 1st of each year, and continues until October 31st. The City of Malden takes its street sweeping seriously, and the fine for impeding the street sweeper is $50! Signing up for ‘street alerts’ through the link above under winter parking will also notify you about street sweeping. Generally speaking, we sweep residential streets, each side, once a month (odd side and even side are swept on different days). Other main arteries may get done weekly, and still others are done daily. Please reference the below schedule and sign up to be alerted to avoid a ticket.
Vehicles with non-passenger plates are not allowed to park overnight on city streets, between the hours of 9pm and 7am unless the vehicle has a valid permit issued but the City of Malden Parking Department. To be eligible for this permit the vehicle must be registered to Malden and under a gross weight of 10,000lbs.
