The Office of Mayor Gary Christenson and the Malden Redevelopment Authority have announced a new parking validation program for Malden Center businesses. Beginning Monday, May 10th, Malden Center businesses will be able to validate parking for their customers for four hours at no cost to the businesses. Participating businesses are receiving their validation booklets this week and will begin to display the ParkMalden 4-Hour Validation window decals in their windows.
To have your parking validated for four hours Monday through Friday when visiting a Malden Center business, simply park in either the Central Business District (CBD) Parking Garage at 170 Centre Street, or at Jackson Street Parking Garage at 7 Jackson Street. Once you have patronized a store displaying the ParkMalden 4-Hour Validation window decals in their window, present your garage parking ticket to receive a validation sticker allowing you to extend your stay downtown.
"We wanted to show our appreciation for our businesses that made it through this last year by removing any barriers for their customers to come back," said Mayor Gary Christenson. "With this new 4-hour program, customers have more reason to stay awhile and rediscover all the different businesses in Malden Center."
The program is for Monday through Friday only since the two downtown garages are currently free on weekends.
