Pre-storm Snow Education

Winter weather is now upon us. Take some time to familiarize yourself with all the rules in Malden.

If you have not done so already, please sign up for our city-wide emergency notification system known as CodeRED. Additionally, you will want to follow the updates we post on our website alerts to see up-to-the-minute changes.

This year is a park even snow season, so unless signs say otherwise, you must park on the even-numbered side of the street until April 1st when our winter parking season ends. Remember that during snow emergencies, the rules become more restrictive so you will want to make sure that you find out what the rules are where you park. Any exceptions will be noted by nearby signs and details can also be searched on our Street Alerts app.

When we declare a snow emergency, parking on some streets becomes more restrictive and if a vehicle is left in that location during a snow emergency, your vehicle may be towed. If your vehicle is towed, contact the Malden Police Department at 781-322-1212 for further instructions.

Snow Removal - Your Sidewalks, Homes and Businesses
Please remember that 12 hours after we declare the end of snow operations for any storm, business owners must shovel their sidewalks and within 24 hours homeowners must do the same. Please review our quick reference guide to avoid being ticketed.

Snow Removal - City Streets and Public Areas
Our Department of Public Works makes every effort to keep our streets safe and passable during winter weather. If at the conclusion of snow operations for a given storm, you feel that a street needs further attention, you may submit a ticket using our issue reporting tool. The DPW will not respond to requests during snow operations unless there is an emergency.
