Please fill out the following form to notify the Melrose Police Department about overnight parking at your home.
NOTE: Each owner of a registered vehicle is allowed to request five overnight parking days per year. If you attempt to exceed the five-day exemption, you will automatically be locked out.
When a parking ban is in place during emergency situations, there will be no overnight parking exemptions.
Alternatively, you have the option to purchase an annual overnight parking permit for $80/year from the Melrose City Clerk’s Office. With the annual overnight parking permit you are allowed to park overnight in any of the Melrose Municipal Lots, as well as the Melrose Commuter Train Lots. Please note all municipal lots begin time zone parking at 8 a.m., with the exception of the three (3) commuter train lots, that begin at 6 a.m.. You must remove your car on or before 6 a.m. in the train lots, or by the posted time limit in the remaining municipal lots. For example, the time zone parking begins at 8 a.m. in the Dills Court lot aka, CVS/Shaws, and there is a 3 hour limit. To use your overnight parking permit in this lot you must remove your car on or before 11 a.m. (8 a.m. start + 3 hour limit). Take careful note of the posted time limit signs posted in each individual municipal lot.
