The area has gone down a lot in the past 2 decades. I am hoping Malden turns it around and we can actually have our children out and about and I not be worried.

  • 146-150 Belmont Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 1
    Every morning between 5:30-7:30 am a motorcycle speeds down Belmont street waking my entire household up each time. This motorcycle is beyond loud and goes WELL above the speed limit. My family and I have lived here for 3 years and have experienced a growing lack of regard for the speed limit on this street. Multiple accidents from cars speeding trying to dodge parked cars, loud speeding motorcycles and sports cars. It has gotten out of hand being a straightaway and motorists thinking it's the Autobahn. What can be done - lighted speed limit signs? Police presence (at least temporarily during early morning and peak hours)? SPEED BUMPS? Something needs to give for the safety of this neighborhood.
  • Intersection Of Cross St And Walnut St Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 1

    Vehicle travelling along Cross St are speeding excessively. At the intersection of Cross and Walnut a vehicle crashed into a crosswalk sign and a house as well on Tuesday 5/2/17. This is the second such accident at the same intersection.

    On this same day I witnessed a vehicle traveling on Cross St cross center line into the opposite lane and almost causing a head-on collision with oncoming cars - again speeding was involved.

    Can a speed check be posted here to help with the speeding issues along this street before someone gets seriously hurt?

  • Fairmont St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 1

    Hello,
    About year 1-2 yrs ago, 90-92 fairmont street was purchased and rented. I do not know who the landlord is but the neighbors and I have been witnessing a multitude of issues with the new tenants.
    1) #90- On the second floor, there is a couple living there who have different but steady tenants coming in and out. (between 3-4 people extra that change every few months. We are assuming that they are subletting.
    2) #92 -There are at least 5-6 people currently living in the property when the landlord rented to one woman. Again, these people change from time to time, indicating a sub-letting.

    With all these people in a small house, comes:
    1) Alcohol related fighting in the middle of the night-(police are called several times)
    2) Trash is put out every friday night when the trash day is Monday. As a result Animals break through the bags, leaving garbage all over the street
    3) Constant noise into all hours of the night (music, fighting, parties)
    4) No respect for the neighbors
    5) Absent landlord
    6) MOST IMPORTANTLY: They bring with them 10-12 cars (driveway only holds 3 cars). including vans, constructions vans and their own cars but 10 spots are taken on Fairmont street from this one house.

    Everyone is sick of it! Please help us.

  • Walnut Terrace Malden Massachusetts - Malden Ward 1

    Children cannot walk in street to and from school and bus. Nearly every home owner has not shoveled the sidewalk from 108-115 Walnut making it impassable and dangerous for our children and in some cases parents. The kids will be forced to literally have to walk in the street.

    Initially we reported Cross to Walnut Terrace but the sidewalks were shoveled.

  • Illegal Driveway ? Acknowledged
    36-38 Hancock Street (Rear) On The Stevens Street Side Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 1

    This issue was originally reported over two years ago, and it shows that it was assigned to the City of Public Works, but then the report was closed because of no update.

    Can the city please take notice that this Hancock street property has had the fence removed on the Stevens street side to make room for multiple driveway parking spots. Which eliminated at least 3 street parking spots.

    Hi -

    The PAYT web site at cityofmalden.org says styrofoam is not acceptable as a recyclable item. However, a web site search for "styrofoam" yields the website https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/181/CHAP09_1.pdf which says that styrofoam "shall be required to be properly secured and placed in an approved recycling bin for collection." Styrofoam is recycle code 6 (polystyrene), and although in practice its extrusion can make it tougher to recycle there are agencies that do it. If clean white pure styrofoam isn't accepted for recycling, why's it listed in that PDF?

  • 44 Tufts Street Malden Ma - Malden Ward 1
    This property is a rental. The outside is a mess with trash everywhere. Along the fence, in the year visible from the street, in the driveway visible from the street and there is a mattress out front that’s been there for over a week. The lawn never gets mowed either. Real bad eye soar.

    good afternoon I would like to know if there is any place that I can take the plastic bags for recycling, since malden is no longer recycling. I would also like to know how I do with my blue recycling boxes that are broken. Thank you

    A number of established street shade trees in the area have suddenly died. Could someone knowledgeable about trees be sent to figure out exactly why? They are a terrible loss. Is there a tree disease epidemic or insect infestation, or did the City use different chemicals on the streets last winter that might have done this? Also, I have noticed that the City continues to mound earth and mulch around trees, which kills them (see explanation of how below). I brought this to the City's attention several years ago, but it has continued. Could it *please* be stopped? I see that many new trees are being planted, for which I thank you, but if this mounding continues, they will not last long. Following is an explanation of why mounding around trees kills them. *Please* have those in charge of planting trees and maintaining them read it, and *please* take this issue seriously. Thank you.

    "Soil added around a tree reduces the amount of oxygen available to the roots and slows the rate of gas exchange in and around the roots. There may be less moisture and nutrients available to the roots or too much moisture may remain around the tree's roots. Inadequate oxygen reaching the roots or microorganisms in the soil around the roots can lead to an accumulation of chemicals that can injure tree roots. The tree's bark may decay where soil is newly in contact with it. Damage or injury to the tree because of the added soil may not become apparent for several months or years and generally appears as a slow decline followed by death."

    There is no STOP sign on the corner of Parker street and Walnut Street....drivers commonly bomb through this intersection without stopping.
