As of Thursday, Jan. 2 at 12 noon, the City of Malden is declaring a snow emergency.
After the emergency goes into effect, winter parking rules will be strictly enforced until the snow emergency is lifted. To avoid getting a ticket or being towed on streets with restrictions, you must seek off-street parking until the snow emergency has been lifted.
To help residents, seven locations will be open for free parking until the snow emergency is lifted: the Early Learning Center, Beebe, Forestdale, Ferryway, Linden, and Salemwood Schools and downtown at the CBD Garage located at 170 Center St. Again, vehicles can park at these locations free of charge but must be removed when the snow emergency is lifted or vehicles will be towed from these lots.
