  • 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.

    There are vehicles belonging to the construction staff that continuously park on the pedestrian crossing making it extremely dangerous for those who are crossing to the other side. There have been numerous calls made to Malden police and verbal complaints to officers on duty near the area. I can only believe, no one, including Malden officials, want a tragedy happen here especially since citizens have came forth voicing concerns. The construction staff have even been approached. Nothing works including reaching out to the traffic department and speaking to the Lt. who has instructed me to get in touch if I see anymore vehicles there. Unfortunately this tends to happen a lot more on the weekends while that office is closed. The construction crew get paid to work and get the job done, however, it doesn’t constitute a ‘hall pass’ to park in the street making it a hazard to pedestrians. Please take care of this. Thank you.

    does it really take over 2 years to get crosswalks painted?! they're almost invisible now.

    This is located where the new apartments near Malden Center are being built. I have more close up pictures of the problem. Basically, the ramp does not fit the sidewalk properly and there's a several inch drop from the top of the ramp to the ground. The ramp does not provide adequate stability for people with wheelchairs or walkers to move onto the sidewalk safely. A wheelchair can flip over or someone with vision and depth perception issues can step off the ramp improperly and get hurt. Not to mention the sidewalk is dirt with a bunch of big, loose rocks that can get stuck in wheels or cause a fall. After using the ramp to get onto the sidewalk, in order to get off the other end of the sidewalk, there is no ramp (not pictured) so people with wheelchairs would have to take another drop off (although the gap is not as large as is seen in the picture provided.) Please require the company to provide safe and adequate options for people of all abilities to navigate around their construction site.
  • 30 Winter St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    A constant problem. The business has been put on notice by the city. Yet it continues almost daily. The specific location is particularly dangerous as it is where the road narrows and is where Autumn St meets Winter. We already have a severe problem at rush hour with drivers crossing the yellow line to pass backed up traffic and traveling in the oncoming lane repeatedly causing head on near misses with traffic exiting Autumn and trying to head west on Winter. These trucks parking in this location are causing the exact same problem as drivers on Winter are forced to cross the yellow line, placing them at risk of a head on collision with cars exiting Autumn. Please finally put a stop to it. It is constant. The intersection is dangerous enough without this.

  • 110 Dartmouth St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    This car, and some others, are routinely parking in between handicapped parking spaces at the lot across from the Y. This means that people in vans have trouble getting in and out. The no-parking spaces are not clearly marked, but there's really no excuse.
  • 26-28 Kenmore Rd Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    Thank you Malden for the beautiful fountain and flowing water feature that you have installed at this location. It has been here for a week now and all of the residents just LOVE it. In fact, we are considering hosting a neighborhood regatta. Many of us are however concerned by what it is doing to the street and the ground under it, and by the amount of water being wasted. Several hundred gallons per day must being going right down the drain. Literally.

    746 Main St Malden 02148, United States - Malden Ward 4
    Main st is in desperate need of a full re-paving after the construction is finished.
  • 733 Main St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    There are no crosswalks across Main St from Winter St to Mountain Ave. There should be at least 2 or 3 more crosswalks in that stretch
