This year, there were two important changes to our Winter Parking regulations that we want residents to be aware of.
1. Normally our winter parking restrictions for the City of Malden run from November 1st to April 1st. This year, instead of winter parking restrictions starting on November 1st, we will start the restrictions at the first winter event that takes place that requires our DPW to deploy winter weather operations such as plowing and/or sanding.
2. We removed a previous restriction that prohibited overnight parking on approximately 100 streets. Residents whos streets were contained within the yellow highlighting of our previous years' flyers were required to vacate the street overnight are no longer required to do so. Although these overnight restrictions were removed, please be certain that you take note of other restrictions your street may have.
Getting notified about winter parking alerts is as easy as signing up for our automated alert services.

Vehicles that are towed due to a Snow Emergency Violation will be towed to one of our tow lots around the City. In order to find out where your vehicle has been towed, you can contact the Malden Police at 781-322-1212. After confirming where the vehicle is, you will need to pay the tow yard $140 if you retrieve within 24 hours or be subject to a $35/day storage fee. You will additionally have a parking ticket of $25 that must be paid to the City unless you plan to appeal the ticket. Instructions for payment/appeal can be found printed on the back of the ticket.
