SURVEY: Help Shape Malden Square's Future

A team of Harvard graduate students have teamed up with the City of Malden and the Metropolitan Planning Council to help develop a plan for Malden Square.

Do you live, work, go out or own property near Malden Center? What do you like about the square, and what drives you crazy? 

Your views will be the focus of a planning study by "Plan Malden Square," a new project between the City of Malden, the Metropolitan Planning Council (MAPC) and a team of graduate students from Harvard University's urban planning program.

Hundreds have already taken the online survey, with some students volunteering to physically conduct surveys in the square itself. 

"With public input gathered online, and through the variety of engagement events we have planned, the team will propose strategies for business development, urban design, redevelopment, transportation, open space and housing," a message on the group's Facebook page reads. 

For more information, you can contact the project at planmaldensquare@gmail.com.

hey diana,why is it that everytime somebody does not tow the line with your thinking,you either directly call them names or start insinuating things about that person.i am not insecure with who i am,maybe you are,and i am not stupid,maybe that makes you feel better about yourself. read about that condition in some magazine,written by a couple of doctors from harvard. have a nice night diana.

Lets say they build these condos and then they do not sell them.. what happens to the condos ? I am pretty sure they turn them into Section 8 housing.. I don;t know I could be wrong but isn't this what happened to many of the condos at Revere Beach ?

They should hold public meetings where we could all share ideas about ways to make this a better safer place. I know they have public safety meetings but those can only go so far. It is obvious they have not been working , just look at how many people attend them. Mix these meetings up a little and have regular policemen come in so we could speak with them and understand their jobs and concerns better. I appreciate the effort but it has become stale and I don't find it helpful.
