Malden Embraces Winter Preparedness

DPW - Snow - Truck (1)

Although we have not had any measurable snowfall, we are taking this opportunity to remind residents to familiarize themselves with crucial winter weather procedures detailed on the City's dedicated website, This site provides essential information on parking rules, snow removal policies, and emergency notifications.

Main Points to Know:

  • Malden Alerts: Residents are encouraged to sign up for Malden Alerts at to receive timely notifications about snow emergencies and other winter weather updates. This is a new system as of last year so residents should not assume that they are automatically signed up. Visit the signup page to confirm.
  • Winter Parking Rules: The onset of significant snowfall triggers the City's winter parking rules, in effect until April 1st. These rules mandate alternate-side parking, varying each year between even and odd sides of the street with this year requiring parking on the odd-numbered side of the street. Some important exceptions apply and those details can be found at
  • Emergency Parking: In case of snow emergencies, residents lacking off-street parking may use designated City emergency parking lots. However, they must stay updated via the City's 311 line for information on when to remove their vehicles.
  • Towing Policies: Vehicles parked in restricted areas during snow emergencies risk being towed. The Malden Police Department provides assistance and information for towed vehicles.
  • Snow Removal Requirements: Both residential and business properties are required to clear sidewalks abutting their properties within specific timeframes post-storm which can be found here Non-compliance can lead to reporting and ticketing.
  • City Streets and Public Areas: The Department of Public Works diligently works to keep streets safe and passable. Residents may report any post-storm street issues through the City's issue reporting tool at

This comprehensive approach, including the crucial Malden Alerts system, ensures that residents stay informed and prepared for winter weather challenges, contributing to a safer and more responsive community during the snowy season.
