  • 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.

    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?

    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.

    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 .

  • 85 Suffolk Street Malden, MA - Malden Ward 7
    The tree in front of her house is lifting up the sidewalk & her driveway. She said that she cannot get her car into the driveway due to the roots being so bad.
