The City of Malden has announced that Winter Parking restrictions will begin on Saturday, January 19th at 12 Noon. These restrictions will continue until April 1st and will be enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week regardless of actual weather conditions. These regulations are intended to facilitate sanding and plowing operations, and generally restrict parking to one side of the street. Additional restrictions apply during a declared snow emergency. Residents should visit www.cityofmalden.org/snow for complete details on winter parking and regularly follow updates on the City’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. In the event that this weekend’s storm intensifies, there is the possibility that it will become a snow emergency so please continue to monitor the situation to see if there are additional restrictions to follow.
In past years, the City of Malden began winter parking restrictions on November 1st. This year the City decided to delay the start of the winter parking regulations until the forecast showed pending weather that would require the City to sand and/or plow citywide. This proved beneficial as residents were able to enjoy an additional 11 weeks of unrestricted parking. With the uncertainty of the storm predicted for Sunday, the bitter cold that will follow, and the following week showing several days of potential snow, the City has decided that the time has come to commence winter parking restrictions so that streets may be properly plowed and treated.
Residents with any questions are encouraged to call the Malden Parking Department at 781-397-7196.
