    120 Mountain Ave Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    Almost every Saturday someone sets up a mini flee market right on the sidewalk in front of the Holland Pool close to 120 mountain ave. Does he have a permit? is this allowed to begin with in Malden?

    I'm a little confused... the construction company working on Rosemont St. (generally a great team) just buried the water line access point for my house under concrete. Is this standard? What if they need to find it again?

    Can you please explain why if City Hall is open until 5pm why the Engineering Office had the security screen at the customer counter closed at 4:30pm this afternoon and no staff in sight. Does the Engineering Department have different hours then the rest of City Hall? If so this should be published on the website.

    Hi,

    I was just told to move from the bar area from Faces Brewing as I had ordered food to go and had ordered drinks while I was waiting on my food. My food arrived, and I had started munching on some of it as I finished my drink. I was then told to move from the bar area since I was eating. I even had asked if I needed to order food with my drink and the bartender said no. There were lots of other people at the bar and not a single person had food with them, so it seems as if people are able to order drinks without food. Masks are not enforced here either, as only staff were wearing them. I witnessed several people that were ordering drinks/food in the seated area that were not drinking or eating talking to the waitress without masks, and staff didn’t enforce the policy.

    Nearly every night for the past week there's been an incredibly pungent odor outside. I can best approximate it as deep fried food and cilantro. It's keep-your-windows-closed bad and has become a real nuisance. What's happening? I'm used to the regular Malden smells of Piantedosi and coffee roasting, but this is quite chemically and really terrible.

    Drivers and pedestrians without driver's ed don't know what the red plus yellow signal means. I've observed cars running the light on both Main St and Mountain Ave in the same signal interval. Please consider upgrading the intersection to use more commonly known walk/don't walk signals.

    29 Winter St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4

    I am concerned that people are camping in the woods at the end of the parking lot of this property, behind the homes at 28, 32, and 36 Autumn St. My wife and I heard voices from that area at dusk last night. I heard them again this morning just after sunrise. I then saw a woman in the area this morning with a bicycle and a backpack. I was not going to post a photo to spare an obviously homeless person unnecessary embarrasment. However, I saw her discard an empty water bottle by tossing it in the lot. I asked her to pick it up and take it with her. She responded with a disgusting slur and a string of profanity. I called the police because of her aggressive and threatening response. MPD responded very quickly and were very helpful and professional. However she had left the area in the few minutes it took them to respond. I have posted her photo so other neighbors can be aware of her, especially given her level of aggression.

    Please address the issue with the property owner. The neighborhood has had decades of issues with this property, including illegal dumping, probable drug dealing, noise pollution from people hanging out late at night, and intrusive light pollution from the high intensity lighting they added a few years ago (which now lights up my once peaceful backyard and my son's bedroom like the Vegas strip). That was installed to facilitate their illegal, unpermitted off-site parking operation, which, pre-pandemic at least, has operated consistently since before we moved in more than 20 years ago. The owner even issues parking "permits" to people who don't live there. There is a vehicle with such a "permit" parked there right now, in fact. Pre-pandemic, for as long as we have lived here, we could watch numerous vehicles every morning park there. The owners would exit their vehicles with backpacks, briefcases, and coffee mugs in hand and walk directly to the T station. While less common now, it still happens. No doubt, we're going to see that activity increase in coming weeks.

    Even more concerning though, our neighborhood had a rash of burglaries several years ago. This wooded area is open to numerous back yards on Autumn St. In one instance, perpetrators were chased out of a home on Rosemont St. (which intersects Autumn) in the early morning by a resident -- an extremely dangerous and potentially deadly situation. The individuals used this location as a path to flee, and even dumped stolen property there.

    The owner of 29 Winter needs to secure his property before we have another potentially more serious incident. He needs to fence this area off so it cannot be accessed or used as an access point for criminals to backyards on Autumn, or as an illegal campsite.

    Again, thank you to the officers who responded. They were well aware of the property's history of problems and even told me about an incident involving a person found sleeping in the property's dumpster. So it's only a matter of time before something bad happens there.

    I am reporting this here in addition to MPD because over the years the response from other city officials has been less than satisfactory. It has been completely inadequate and dismissive of resident's concerns, actually. It is time that city inspectors and other officials respond to the complaints about this problem property and take action concerning the numerous issues neighbors have raised over the years, rather than doing what they have done in the past, which has been to tell us every single time that what we see with our own eyes isn't happening.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I requested multiple times to change my apartment carpet. My apartment is not safe to live with current condition. I have two toddlers who lives here with more than 15 years old carpet. It’s broken from multiple places.

    Electric outlets are not in safe conditions so I have been applying Scott tap.

    Living room air condition is not working and it’s always hot.

    "The tallest fence that can be installed without a Special Permit from the Planning Board is six feet tall. A six foot fence will need a Building Permit and you will want to have the property surveyed by a Licensed Surveyor to be sure you are within your property line. In addition no fence can be higher than three feet, ten feet back from the front property line to protect pedestrians and vehicles from entering or exiting motor vehicles. If you need additional clarification due to lot configuration please come into the office at 110 Pleasant St, Second Floor and meet with a Buildings Inspector. For an appointment call 781-397-7030.

  • Holden St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4

    The property is constantly a menace to our community. This rink leads to a series of issues:

    - The customers stay past closing until 1 or 2 AM in the morning having tailgating parties.
    - The rink leaves its floodlights on until 4 AM every day, it's disruptive to nearby residents trying to sleep but also invites teenagers to party all night.
    - The customers litter their discarded trash all over the parking lot after games.

    We have called and left emails and messages to no avail, can someone please bring attention to these issues.
