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.

    Neighbors on Fairmont Street, Malden

  • 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.

  • Ferry St & Boylston St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
    This National Grid project that has turned Ferry Street into an outright DISASTER AREA, once completed SHOULD INCLUDE (just as our neighbors in Everett) FULL REPAVEMENT OF THE ENTIRE DISRUPTED ROADWAY! How can Malden allow National Grid to leave the area and get away with only patching??! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ABSURD! Everett has repaved from Glendale Square right up to the Malden line! MALDEN residents DESERVE THE SAME! Someone from the city should make sure National Grid does not just tear up our roadway for their benefit, just patch and leave! As a long time Malden taxpayer I find this TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! WE DESERVE BETTER! SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAKE A STAND AND SPEAK UP!
  • 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.

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    396 Ferry St Malden 02148, United States - Malden Ward 7
    National Grid has been working on this section of ferry street(where Harvard st, Boylston open). This street patches are complete hack work. These patches are not level and sit over an inch below grade. Why doesn’t the city hold contractors and companies responsible for this hack work that is being done in this city. Send a city clerk out to do his job. I work in construction and this is laughable at what contractors get away with for these city projects.

    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?

  • 90 Hancock St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 1
    There is a commercial dumpster at the driveway of 90 Hancock Street. It has been there for over a year now. Hancock street is a residential area, and there is no construction or renovation at this residential property. Why are contractors driving into this driveway and making loud annoying noises by throwing hazardous construction debris into this illegal dumpster sitting at this driveway for over a year now?
  • Ferry St & Boylston St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
    Wondering just when ALL of the night construction on Ferry Street is going to END??! What in the world is going on?? What is the scheduled end date?? After completion of the construction project I would also like to know when the street is going to be repaved! It’s been quite the inconvenience and headache and the debris all over the road is certainly not good for our vehicles to travel over on a daily basis. Losing my patience with this project! Would appreciate some information/updates. Thank you.
  • 96 Fairmont Street Malden Massachusetts - Malden Ward 1

    At 96, 98 and 100 Fairmont street, there are 3 different vehicles on the street for extended periods of time and and they never move. I got a ticket for parking over 24 hours and I am a resident on this street. None of these vehicles even live on the street. It is a White Toyota Camry MA license plate, 6EJ892, a Black Honda Pilot 5JR572 and a Brown Honda CRV I couldn't get the license plate from. But all 3 have been parking in front of these houses for over 7 days and have not been moved. I got a ticket for being parked over 24 hours and I live on the street. We need RESIDENT PARKING PERMITS for fairmont street from 79 to 115 fairmont street. We have a lot of Everett residents from belmont street who park on this street, a lot of the resident on fairmont street don't have driveways. The other side of Fairmont Street and Boston Street all have resident parking, we should have it too. Because Everett is one street over and those residents take our spots.

    I posted this at 6:40 PM on Sunday, 9/30/18 - This vehicle will still be there tomorrow. I took this photo on Sunday 9/30 at 10 AM. It has been parked there for over 7 days.
