The Malden City Council and Mayor Christenson established the Long-Term Transportation Planning Study Committee in order to review current procedures, services, and projects related to transportation planning and research and recommend best practices that can improve mobility and neighborhood quality of life throughout the City.
The Committee was formed to respond to resident concerns about traffic as well as to identify ways to take better advantage of Malden’s access to transit and its historic street grid that allows for convenient walking and biking. Surveys and public outreach performed for the March 2017 Growth Management Study (aka Moratorium Study) showed that residents identified greater traffic volume as one of their top concerns with further development. They also identified Malden’s access to transit as top strength as well as the need for better pedestrian and bicycle safety.
