  • 1 Irving Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4

    I previously reported this problem (almost a week ago). But I have received no response from Permits, Inspection, and Planning. I am requesting that this be forwarded to the city's ADA compliance officer, and to anyone else with oversight over matters such as this, and that action be taken promptly.

    This is a blatant violation of the ADA, a misuse of a public sidewalk, a hazard to all pedestrians (not just the disabled), and simply a violation of common sense. I'm all for outdoor seating (like near the front door of the establishment) when there is sufficient room for it. But this is not OK. I cannot possibly imagine that the city has authorized this.

    Nearly the entire pedestrian through zone, which should be at least five to seven feet wide, and under no circumstances should be less than four, has been taken for this private establishment's seating. What remains is a narrow strip roughly three feet wide to the curb. That not only obstructs wheelchair access but presents a serious risk to a person in one. The rope, which is tied to a city sign at one end, is at or below knee level (in fact, at times, the establishment allows it to rest on the ground), posing a trip hazard, especially to a visually impaired person. In addition, the planters to which the rope is attached are not affixed to the ground. Instead they are precariously balanced on stacked cement tiles. The whole thing is both illegal and a serious accident waiting to happen. It endangers not only those attempting to pass by, but also patrons of the establishment. Please address it before someone gets badly hurt. Thank you.

    200 Pleasant St Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4
    I think its a disgrace that I have taken time off from work several times to apply for my LTC and every time I go to the police station during the posted times the woman who is supposed to do them has left early. Every Tuesday night she has not been there to do them. One day I went during the day and she was supposed to do them until 11. I got there at 10:20, she sent me to get a money order, I got back at 10:35 and she told me I was too late and would have to come back. This is totally unacceptable and she should be made to do her job.

    Bicycle in the middle of the sidewalk. Let's get rid of this absurd program and replace it with docking bicycles, as many other cities do.
  • 4 Everett St Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4
    This fence is a huge issue on the corner of maude and everett street. Recently got into a car accident from someone running stop sign that i could have prevented if i could have seen them. How many accidents is it going to take before something is done or is it going to take a pedestrian getting hit?

    traffic backs up from light on corner of washington and florence making it impossible at times to get off of maude street and turning on to maude street from washington. would make it easier if the green light was held longer and when the light is green coming from the square make it green at the same time on the washington street side. as most cars turn either right or left

    Been over a week and the trash is still overflowing. Drive by at night and you can see rats near the dumpster.

    The crosswalk coming from the T has no cutout on the far sidewalk. Any plan to remedy this?
  • 12 Or 14 Winter St Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4
    Residents of I believe 14 Winter St have been washing a whole lot of fish in their yard directly into Winter St.(right by Spadaforas Funeral Home). It flows all the way down Winter St right along the heavy commuter trail to Oak Grove. The smell is beyond over powering and is plain sickening to the point of gagging. It has engulfed the entire street all the way to Oak Grove and to Main St. It’s been going on about a week or two but in the last two days has gotten really bad. Everyone has to walk passed it I mean everyone on their way to and from work. My family and I can even go out into our yard and I’m sure we’re not the only’s real bad. PU fish gutts! Reminds me of lobster bait smell...may even see maggots because the guts are all over his bushes by the sidewalk. See photo...
