  • Off Forrest St Malden, MA 02148 - Malden Ward 7
    Waite's Mount Park off Forrest St looks like Beirut or Baghdad, a total disgrace with graffiti on the granite rocks, tons of broken glass not too long ago this was a beautiful and much loved and used neighborhood park
  • Massachusetts 60 Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    This sidewalk is closed but there is no effective detour when walking west, from Franklin Street (my home) towards the Malden Center train station. In fact, the sign stating the sidewalk is closed is only present in the other direction. And there is no safe way to cross Rt. 60 from Franklin Street to the point of the closure; a pedestrian-light is only present on the other side of the closure. Further, if I were to cross over Rt. 60 on my way home there would be no way to get back across after the detour, for the same reason. This morning I ended up walking right past a bunch of large construction equipment that was in use, and hoping that the operators saw me. Perhaps coning off that part of Rt. 60 so people could walk safely would be a better approach.

    Every winter I bring up the fact that this stretch of Route 60 is impassible in snow to us pedestrians. But it doesn't seem to be an issue that gets solved. At 8pm tonight, there I was, walking in the street because I had to get home from the train station. I really can't describe how dangerous this is. The only real protection I have is the flashlight attached to my backpack, and the hope that the drivers will be attentive enough to notice me in time.

    I'm sure there aren't enough resources to keep the sidewalk clear, or there is some turf issue and there will be a claim that this is someone else's responsibility. But meanwhile the situation is really, really dangerous.

    Nothing has been done about this for months. Who are the owners of this property?

    Couldn't the sidewalk along route 60 be left clear for pedestrians? It's one thing for me to be forced into the road, but I hate to see the kids walking to school be put into an unsafe situation. Or at least have someone stationed to direct people around? I have to walk by this site every day now and I feel like it is getting steadily more difficult to do a commute to the train station.
  • Boylston Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7

    I live on the corners of Boylston and Henry. I have a daughter and we cross that cross walk daily. We are just on the opposite side of a large ball field park and walk path. I can sit on my front stairs and watch 7 out of 10 car will not stop at this 3 way intersection. Please let's be proactive not reactive people will roll to the stop and never stop at times we need an unmarked cruiser to watch this area when they redid the streets I suggested that we do one of those streets that are raised now that the good weather is back kids are all over the area bikes scooters playing running it is just a matter of time till one gets hit or another accident happens please show some concern for our children

    Thanks

    55 Clayton St. Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    Im sorry to have to write about this again... about 2 months ago I reported an ongoing issue with neighborat 55 Clayton St. The Cheif of Police came out.personally to warn the home owner to cease parking her vehicle oovernight out in the street as she has a private driveway that can easily accomodate two vehicles. She had been warned 4 times previously by police and once again she has had her car.out on the street since Friday March 7th at 4pm and is still there! This woman is determined to inconvenience neighbors as well defy both local authority and the city government. This parking regulation was put into place by Malden city officials for good reason. How many times should this owner be "warned "? She is blantent in her disrespect to her neighbors and the police .

    As always, there has been no shoveling of the sidewalks on certain parts of Route 60. I'm attaching a map to try to show the problem areas. Hopefully it is correct; I am not great with geography. The issue is that the sidewalks are totally impassible--no one even tried to shovel them. People are walking in the streets as there is no choice. This is scary for those of us walking, and scary for those driving.

    Personally I'm not walking anymore. It's just too dangerous. I will be paying for a space in the garage near the train station, and starting up my car twice a day so that I can drive the one mile. I think this is a shame for the environment and for my personal health, but it isn't safe to do anything else in the winter if we can't count on having navigable sidewalks.

    Absolutely appalling for civilians view let alone the kids that live at property.
  • 37-69 Wyeth Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    Today we had a worker knock on our door(not national grid) asked to take a look at the gas meters) when he leaves the gas is off and meters disconnected) not professionally done and no shutoffs where locked. With all the banging and drilling something could have fell and open the valve. The workers then finish there 8 hr day and go home. Leaving multiple homes with no gas and in a very dangerous situation with no locks on the shutoffs and the meters disconnected . I called national grid. They came out put a lock on the meter and left. I reported this to the dpw Bob knocks I believe his name was. His response was it's not his problem. After telling him in many ways that I believe it is his problem or at least the city of Malden problem for workers leaving a entire block in danger. ANYONE leaving gas in hope that a 20 year old shutoffs will hopefully holdup over the weekend and no kill someone. If they where leaving this like this it should have been locked and capped off. Then Bob knocks started saying he would help. He then called back to let me know he called national grid. I told him they came and did nothing and left . He said again it's not my problem. Its now been 11 hrs with a no gas. No answers no hot water no stove for tenants and a scary situation for the 8 people in our house and the kids playing on the street.
