  • 20 West St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2
    At 20-22 West St, corner of West St and Estey St the owner paved his entire front yard -- sidewalk to house wall -- within the last couple days. This is not allowed per the bylaw 400.7.9 which says"a minimum of 50% of the required front yard shall be devoted to lawn and/or landscaping " -- right? Please correct this with the owner as possible.

    Malden Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 2
    In driving through other cities and seeing the fallout of Thursday's blizzard it seems that the Malden DPW has done a good job responding to issues that have resulted from the storm. What I do find troubling is that there are some people who do not shovel and then that snow turns to ice. Others, who live on corners of major intersections do not shovel a path to the side street so pedestrians have to walk all the way around into the traffic of a busy street instead of walking directly across the street. There is a policy that property owners who do not shovel will be fined and this should be strictly enforced.
  • 127 Avon Stree Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 2

    Please ask the plows to reverse. I have shoveled my driveway three times today because of the plow. Be fair to everyone on the street not just one side.

    I am a nurse at MGH and have to work early in the morning. My family is going out again in a few hours to dig out the drive again!

    PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! Ask the plow to reverse.

    On a positive note, the plows have been up my street all day.

  • 24 Thacher Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 2
    I asked my neighbor at 24 Thacher Street why he does not park his cars in the driveway. He said that someone had complained. A representative from the city spoke to him about it. After their discussion the city person said it was OK to park in the street. This all sounds odd. The picture attached shows a empty driveway on 12/31/2017. His vehicles parked in the street are 7WR930, 71BP79, I have pictures f this two cars.and sometimes a green Toyota Camary. If I can't park on the street overnight why should he?.

  • Highland Ave & School St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2
    Good Morning. I’ve reported this problem before and there has been a lackluster response. It’s been a month now that roadwork was done in front of 181 Highland Ave in Malden. Because of the SHODDY, Uneven finish, every time a truck passes through, it makes a LOUD noise and shakes the house. My house is over a hundred years old. Is the city of Malden going to take care of damages to my foundation???
    Not to mention the racket it creates at Night!!!!
    The day after I last complained, they came and put huge orange barrels in the middle of the road. This has made parking on the street even more dangerous!!!

    I moved it, but please educate last rider about proper parking. TY.
  • 290-328 Pleasant St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2
    Sidewalk along T parking lot by fire station on the Pleasant St side is entirely blocked. My guess it was done by the city to free up on street parking.
  • Devir St At Highland Ave Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 2
    This issue has been reported numerous times since January 2018 and nothing has been done. Can you please fix, or inform us of why the crosswalk at Devir St and Highland ave is still not fixed and is not going to be fixed in the foreseeable future? This intersection is very dangerous, and I avoid it when I can, but unfortunately it's the only crosswalk for a awhile on this stretch of road so it's often unavoidable.
  • Mbta-Malden Center 230 Pleasant St, Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2

    Can something please be done about the exit from the busway and drop-off areas on the Commercial St side? Busses are incredibly aggressive and pull out of the busway onto Commercial, with many of them getting over to take an immediate left onto Centre St with no regard for the flow of traffic and cars who are already in the road. Cars exiting the dropoff area do the same, but are not nearly as problematic.

    It holds up traffic and, more importantly, is incredibly dangerous.

  • Pearl St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2
    Pearl Street continues to be very dangerous with speeding cars. I thought we would have seen more enforcement, but the problem persists. Maybe a flashing sign that indicates how fast cars are going would help. Clearly no one observes the 25 MPH speed limit. There is going to be a bad accident and it is only going to get worse as traffic increases due to all the building/casino, etc. in our area.
  • 271 Charles St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2
    Is it possible to have speed limit signs put up on Charles St? People are driving down this street extremely fast. There have been numerous accidents over the past few years. Hopefully, speed limit signs will deter future accidents, and possible fatalities.
