  • 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.

    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.

    I am waiting for my plumber to arrive to fix my toilet that broke when the rust came rushing through when you flushed the hydrants in ward 7 on Sunday. Can I look to the City for reimbursement of this bill. Also in order to clear the rust it was necessary for me to run the water non-stop for close to two hours. Can I look to the City for an adjustment on my water bill for this. Look forward to your response.

    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.

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

    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.

  • 490 Eastern Ave Malden, MA - Malden Ward 7
    This was originally reported 6/20/18 with absolutely no action by any city officials. The sidewalk on the Bryant St side is ripped up, not barricaded off causing a dangerous condition for pedestrians and part of the sidewalk is being used to store construction materials with no fence of barricades
  • Harvard Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    I am beyond confused with the hydrant flushing going on now for weeks. Originally we were told it was an emergency and you did not have time to notify us. Then you schedule and notify us (thank you) two consecutive days, then the next week once and now instead of the weekend you are doing it again during the week. Now you advise us that there is no harm from the water that comes out brown (or sometimes doesn't come out at all) and you advise to flush until it runs clear. You make it sound like this is a two minute process. IT IS NOT. It takes my water a few hours to clear, which is a problem on a work morning! Also the first time you did it, my toilet broke and I had to hire a plumber to fix. Additionally I am running the water for hours each time. Can I receive credit on my water bill, can I be reimbursed for the repair. I was referred to your legal department for an answer to this question but did not receive a return call. Actually the most important question I have is that you are advising us that this is routine so the water will be clean and cold. I have lived here 20 years and I have never woken up to no water or no water and rusty water, so I am not so convinced this is a routine process. I don't ever remember in the 20 years it having been done. Can you PLEASE tell me what is the problem with the water because I am very concerned. Thank you. I am sure I am not the only one in Malden that wants to know what is going on. Thank you again.
