CONCURRENT NOTICE – FIRE STATION/TOWN HALL/POST OFFICE (read here)

First and foremost, if you are planning any improvements or additions to your property (such as placement of a propane tank, fencing, etc.), PLEASE CONTACT THE TOWN OF MALDEN FIRST TO MAKE CERTAIN YOUR PLANS ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH ANY EXISTING ORDINANCES OR OTHER REGULATIONS.

*** IMPORTANT***
NOTICE FROM WHITMAN COUNTY
REGARDING RV USE AS PERMANENT RESIDENCE
Once a temporary use permit expires, RV’s can only be used as a permanent residence if sited within a Mobile Home Park or an RV Park, intended for that use.  Most RV’s or a Park Model RV (PMRV) do not meet Washington State Energy Code requirements, which we are required to abide by.  HUD Title 24 § 3282.8(g) specifically prohibits PMRV’s and RV’s from being used as a permanent residence outside of a Mobile Home Park or RV Park.
Read full notice from Whitman County Public Works here.

Please welcome these wonderful volunteers to Malden!
