    Forest St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5
    Sick and tired of the worst part of my commute home is when I enter my own home town. The roads are a joke. Other abutting towns are all upgrading and we can't keep our roads paved. Not leaving a number to contact me. Take a ride yourself and bring a hot coffee with no cover on it when you do.

    139 Forest St Malden 02148, United States - Malden Ward 5
    Forest street is essentially post-apocalyptic at this point.

    87 Boylston Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    I have complained about this before and we had a cruiser one day stop people. One day just doesn't do it. As a resident of this city I expect more. School is bnb in session and kids are everywhere and we still have cars flying down the street with not as much as slowing down at the stop sign. Can I buy my own speed bump and put it in the street? At least this way I can ensure the safety of the children in this neighborhood since our city doesn't care.
  • 30 Fairfield Ave Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 8
    I have lived on Fairfield for 20 years and yes I pay taxes which have gone up significantly. This street has been patchworked for so long that it is difficult to drive. This whole street should be dug up and given a coat of asphalt from top to bottom and made smooth. Its been long enough and it should be done. Since my taxes have gone up this should be a priority not only for me but all the neighbors who live here and who feel the same way

    FOREST STREET IS AN ABOMINATION! Too many potholes to count. Seriously. Three open threads on this site regarding it's condition and all assigned to DPW but no progress has been made. Multiple votes which mean others agree and are as disgusted as I am. The street is practically impassible. Please stop telling us to be patient and please stop telling us that the DPW is addressing the potholes. The entire length of the street needs PROPER repair. Filling holes with loose asphalt and rocks is NOT a solution. Placing orange barrels over holes is NOT a solution. These areas need to be dug out and patched properly. Perhaps Councillor Murphy can assist? She is a resident of Forest Street. Please City of Malden.... help us.
  • Linden Avenue Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4
    For the past 6 hours (first heard it when I got home from work at 7pm and it’s now 1am), something has beeped very loudly every 60 seconds. I live on Linden Ave and it seems to be coming from somewhere near the YMCA. It sounds like the beeping when your fire alarm battery needs to be changed, but it is loud enough to be heard several streets over (inside with the windows open). I walked up the street but I could not find the source and I don’t know what to do. It’s very annoying.
  • Maple Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 3
    At the intersection of Maple St and Ivy Rd the road is completely dug up leaving a giant drop in the road. At night this section of road is very dark and the only warning of this sudden drop is a homemade sign spray painted on plywood which is impossible to see in the dark. Which city official has failed to do their job And make sure the contractor has placed proper saftey signs, reflective orange, warning drivers of the sudden drop. It's about time the city officials who fail to do their jobs are terminated, this dangerous condition is absolutely unacceptable
  • Wigglesworth Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 1
    There is trash all over Bell Rock park, and it continues to accumulate because the city removed the trash bins and never replaced them. Every other public park seems to have trash bins for people's litter so why is this park an exception? The trash is blowing into neighboring yards during windy/rainy days. Please replace the trash bins and perhaps add a recycling bin - Malden forces its residents to use special trash bags to support its recycling program yet doesn't have a recycling bin in a highly visited public park?

    There really needs to be a crosswalk from Mount Vernon to Forestdale Cemetery crossing Forest Street. Traffic is blind on both sides, and there's nowhere for pedestrians to cross the street. Running across the street is dangerous, and it's a pretty common place for pedestrians to cross given the entrance to the cemetery.

    17 Pleasant St Malden, MA - Malden Ward 4
    Why is it we aren’t able to comment on issues anymore? Some citizens were bringing up some great points and suddenly the comments were shut down. This isn’t a very good way for the city to treat people. I can’t say I’m surprised. Typical Massachusetts politics. I give the city a F for this.
  • 12 Autumn St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4

    Re: issue 6510319. Since the city won't allow us to comment on other posts, I've had to open a new one. The poster suggested making Autumn a one way. ABSOLUTELY NOT. For those of us who live on Autumn and the adjacent streets, making us sit through multiple light cycles at Winter and Main just to get home around the corner would be completely unfair. The idea has been raised before. Residents have been quite clear in their opposition.

    The poster is however absolutely correct that the area has become unacceptably dangerous. I've seen the same reckless maneuver s/he describes more times than I can count. But the issue is a TOTAL AND COMPLETE LACK OF TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT at that intersection and more generally, city-wide. We need ENFORCEMENT of traffic laws against the people committing the violations, not rules that punish residents on top of everything else they are already being subjected to by commuters using our neighborhood as a shortcut. I have NEVER seen a traffic stop on Autumn. Literally NEVER, despite probably a violation a minute every day during rush hour.
