Dear Malden Residents,
As you may know, Malden was recently ranked as the 74th most walkable city in Massachusetts.
Working together, I believe we can increase Malden’s walkability ranking. To that end I have appointed long-time Malden resident Sharon Santillo to lead the charge on this issue. I have also recently invited enthusiastic walkers in Malden to join the Committee to make recommendations to me about better signage and improvements to our crosswalks.
Since becoming Mayor, I have walked to City Hall many times and have seen firsthand that improvements must be made, particularly along the Route 60 corridor. My hope is that the Committee will submit their report and recommendations during the next few months so we that may consider potential cost implications as we continue to build our Capital Improvement Program. I’m confident that Sharon and the Committee will help Malden to become more pedestrian friendly and will increase our city ranking!
Thank you and I look forward to our work together on this important issue!
Mayor of Malden
