PARKING DURING A PARKING BAN:
The Consolidated Public Works Director will call a “snow emergency / parking ban” when Excessive amounts of snow are predicted. All vehicles MUST be removed from all roadways to allow for a better clearing job. Any vehicles left on the road are subject to tow. These emergencies are usually called well in advance of these storms to allow residents plenty of time to make arrangements. Snow Emergencies are broadcast on all major television stations as well as local television and on the City of Waltham web site. It is strongly advised that residents move their vehicles as soon as possible.

The City of Waltham has several municipal & school lots. If you are unable to park in a driveway during a parking ban, you may use ANY Municipal or School parking lot & you do not have to pay the meters to park (only applicable when parking ban is in effect). When a parking ban is in place, there is absolutely NO parking on city streets as violators may be subject to tow. You can report illegally parked cars, or recover a towed car by callin the Waltham, MA Police Department at 781-314-3600.

After a parking ban is lifted, you have:
2 HOURS to remove cars from SCHOOL LOTS
24 HOURS to remove cars from MUNICIPAL LOTS

Any cars remaining in school lots at the 2 HOUR MARK from the time the parking ban has been released, will be ticketed or towed. Any cars remaining in municipal lots at the 24 HOUR MARK from the time the parking ban has been released, will be ticketed or towed.
