Savin Street from Fellsway East to The Malden Hospital has only one speed limit sign on the incline and none on the decline. The street has many blind driveways and curves making it difficult to gauge on coming traffic from all directions. Can we post more speed limit signs and slow the lower the speed threshold. Currently it is posted at 30 mph. The Fellsway itself is 25 mph and that is a two lane divided road with very few blind spots. It only makes sense that we slow the traffic, post it better and ensure equal amount of enforcement as the Fellsway.
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
The city should enforce laws requiring people parked on streets from parking to far from curbs. The city could and should be held liable if emergency vehicles cannot get through an area because of cars parked to far away from curbs. From what I saw yesterday this is a citywide problem. Please enforce parking laws across the city and ticket/tow these vehicles that are parked in the middle of many of our streets. The city should not be expected to clear to the curb for residents, the owners of the cars should shovel spots for themselves just as people with driveways have to shovel. Seems as though many lazy entitled people have moved into the city.
The southbound traffic coming from Highland often does not recognize the right of way of the northbound vehicles coming around the circle to get onto Fellsway East. The southbound traffic already has a stop sign, but maybe they also need a "yield to traffic" sign. And maybe also some enforcement. During morning rush hour the other day, we saw two cars get into an accident here.
With the increase in traffic from Main Street coming from Melrose, it has become increasingly difficult to make a left turn from Main Street onto Winter Street. A slight green light delay for the cars coming towards Malden could help alleviate some of the congestion, especially during rush hour periods when it is almost impossible to make the turn.
What the heck is going on with snow removal? Every single side street, and many main roads are still a mess. I've been in other local cities, and they've had major snow removal operations underway. What about Malden? Just on my short drive to drop my daughter off this morning, Highland Ave is blocked in many places because of cars parked where snow wasn't properly removed, and there was not a single side street that is functioning as a 2-way street. Both yesterday and today, plows drove down Woodland Rd, yet only added an in or two in width. The street is now 14 feet wide. Unacceptable. I've reported many issues on SeeClickFix, and they've never been addressed to the point that out city is safe for drivers or pedestrians. Why is a city truck out plowing 2 inches of slush on the side of the road when there are feet of snow on either side that need to be removed?
Northern Strand Community Trail Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 6
Abutting business (property structure that houses Eliot services) has dumped their snow removal onto the bike path creating a pile that is approximately 4-5 feet high and 30 yards in length and covers the entire width of the path.
What is the latest for the Mysterious Gazebo. The Gazebo that Ward 3 Matheson decided to take 35,000 dollars out of a fund with no questions asked. No permit pulled either. Public opinion didn't have a voice. So Mr Matheson of ward 3 when will you be coming out to discuss this disturbing occurrence.
