    There is an approximate 1ft missing piece of curbing along the main interior schoolyard sidewalk at the Linden school. (It is right next to the site where a lamp post recently toppled down and also has a cone covering the raw metal edges and electrical connections. Hopefully this lamp post situation is also on a priority list to be addressed.)
    The curb piece has been missing since before the start of school. The school does try to keep a cone in the spot for safety. However, most of the time, the cone gets moved about or goes missing altogether. My concern is the safety hazard this situation presents. It could easily cause a fall, but also the exposed edges of the remaining curb leave a sharp and pointed surface that could potentially cause a very serious injury. I'm hoping that the piece of curbing can be replaced/repaired certainly before winter when slippery winter conditions will increase the risks.

    A street light is knocked over in front of Linden. This could be a safety issue for children, especially if it is still electrified.

    There are now 2 broken street lamps along the inside loop drive at the Linden STEAM Academy. The one closest to the parking lot was not replaced but has been capped off. I reported this on see-click-fix over a year ago in August of 2017. The 2nd light is up closer to the top of the loop, and simply has an orange barrel over the base and exposed/capped wires. For obvious safety reasons, the power has been cut to the broken lamp bases, but this also effects several of the other outdoor lights. We recently had an outdoor evening event at the school. We thought it would be OK as it got dark because soccer was using the field and we were told the field lights should go on. However, they did not go on, and the school event was left in total darkness, other than the light from the entryway under the bell. (Only 3 of the 6 of those lights were working.)
    The PTO would like to do another outdoor event in later October. However, the lack of lighting poses significant safety concerns. We are hoping that something can be done to restore the outdoor lighting at Linden STEAM Academy.

    In preparation for the upcoming storm - I do not have access to off-street parking. The closest emergency lot is the Linden School, however, last year when I parked there the lot never got plowed yet we were expected to move our cars from the lot once the snow emergency was over. It was extremely difficult to get my car out of the lot even after shoveling around my car. Just curious if that is typical or if I can anticipate that the lot will get plowed for cars to be able to get out?

    Thanks!

    I reported that people run through the school bus red lights consistently and one day a policeman showed and no one did it but it is still going on everyday and no one shows to do anything about it. You thanked me for my concern but I was not looking for thanks I was looking for action, please show up more than once.

  • Linden Square Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 8
    The Linden lot on the corner of Lynn and Beach streets has not been plowed. No surprise, this lot is always neglected by the city. And the sidewalks around the lot and the bus stop have not been cleared - again, no surprise, the city never does this, and one day someone's going to get hit by a car and sue the city, and then maybe finally the DPW will wake up and do its job.
