260 Main St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 1Dear Mayor Christenson and Board of Health of Malden,
I’m reporting an environmental health issue an behalf of concerned residents from 260 Main Street Malden Mass.
Since spring 2019, our neighboring lot owned by National Grid has been constantly serving as a construction site and depository for excavated wastes. It’s understandable that this site is used for occasional temporary projects. However, due to their constant usage for many months and on, the noise and waste dusts pose long term health hazards to our residents here in especially to kids and elderly.
The excavated wastes are often stored here and the moved away before new wastes come again.
My son has developed coughing for over a month. According to his pediatrician, it’s not cold related but due to irritation from environments.
As a community we are very concerned about the long term impact on our health. Please look into this matter as soon as possible so that we can have it addressed.
Thank you so much!
Residents from Uptown Condo at 260 Main St Malden.
31 Commercial St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4This signal has been flashing yellow for several days. That creates a danger for people trying to cross to and from buses and Subway as they cannot call for a walk signal.

Re: issue 6510319. Since the city won't allow us to comment on other posts, I've had to open a new one. The poster suggested making Autumn a one way. ABSOLUTELY NOT. For those of us who live on Autumn and the adjacent streets, making us sit through multiple light cycles at Winter and Main just to get home around the corner would be completely unfair. The idea has been raised before. Residents have been quite clear in their opposition.
The poster is however absolutely correct that the area has become unacceptably dangerous. I've seen the same reckless maneuver s/he describes more times than I can count. But the issue is a TOTAL AND COMPLETE LACK OF TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT at that intersection and more generally, city-wide. We need ENFORCEMENT of traffic laws against the people committing the violations, not rules that punish residents on top of everything else they are already being subjected to by commuters using our neighborhood as a shortcut. I have NEVER seen a traffic stop on Autumn. Literally NEVER, despite probably a violation a minute every day during rush hour.
44 Sprague St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4Last evening walking back from the Malden T station along Florence Street, I found that the sidewalks were treacherous. I, and most other pedestrians, walked on the street. (The same has been true in past years.) Some of the unshoveled location is city property (bridge near the Y), other property is the zip car parking lot on Florence and several private homeowners. This is a well travelled pedestrian route that should have a high priority, in my opinion. Thanks.
102-148 Forest St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5There really needs to be a crosswalk from Mount Vernon to Forestdale Cemetery crossing Forest Street. Traffic is blind on both sides, and there's nowhere for pedestrians to cross the street. Running across the street is dangerous, and it's a pretty common place for pedestrians to cross given the entrance to the cemetery.
Forest Street Malden, Ma - Malden Ward 5There are so many potholes up and down Forest Street on both sides from the Citizens bank all the way up the street, I’m going to avoid driving here because it’s getting pretty dangerous with all these potholes both for my tires & driving w/ a cup of coffee!
160-170 Forest St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5The whole street in that area is a mess starting at like Sylvan Street going down forest to Main , you can’t drive down that street without hitting some kind of pothole it’s been like that for two years , they are always doing work in that area but the street is a mess
865 Main St Malden 02148, United States - Malden Ward 5The sidewalk at this busy intersection hasn’t been cleared at all. There’s over a foot of snow making it impossible for pedestrians to get from Forest street to Main Street
36 Russell St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2Trash is always place next to the barrels instead of inside the barrels so animals and rats can rip them wide open

264-288 Bainbridge St Malden Ma 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5
I walk down Bainbridge towards Pierce every day on my way to Oak Grove MBTA station. There is no safe way to cross Bainbridge or Pierce Street at the intersection of these streets, especially during rush hour.
Cars taking a right from Pierce onto Bainbridge speed around the corner. Cars speed over the hill on Bainbridge. In both of these cases, the drivers have limited visibility of pedestrians as they approach.
What is especially concerning though, is that as a pedestrian trying to cross Bainbridge in particular, I cannot easily see cars that are flying around the corner or over the hill. I am afraid to I will get hit every day I attempt to cross Bainbridge near this intersection.
Can the city implement safety precautions for pedestrians? Maybe a painted crosswalk or, even better, signage to assist pedestrians in a safe crossing?
