Mayor Gary Christenson is pleased to announce that the City was awarded a $40,000 grant through Governor Charles Baker’s Community Compact Program to complete an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. Malden’s Plan has not been updated for several years. “This important initiative has been a longstanding goal of our Disability Commission,” said Mayor Christenson. “Thanks to the Commission’s continued advocacy and commitment we will be working to make sure that all our City services are accessible to residents and visitors of all abilities.” 

The evaluation will involve a comprehensive review of our programs and services as well as an audit of our municipal buildings, schools and recreational spaces for conformance with ADA standards. A deliverable will also include a Transition Plan to address any gaps or deficiencies. The firm of KMA ARCHITECTURE + ACCESSIBILITY will be assisting in the project and will be performing the assessment and developing a strategic accessibility plan. “The Disability Commission is pleased to see the fruition of our hard work in the launching of this assessment,” said Malden Disability Commission Chair Nichole Mossolam. “It will provide us with the information and roadmap we need to make Malden a more accessible community for all our residents along with access to grant funds that will help us reach this goal.”

The public’s input in this process is essential. We would like to hear any ideas and concerns regarding accessibility of City programs and facilities. Please take a few moments to take a short online survey at

If you need assistance completing this survey, please contact Maria Luise at or 781-397-7000 Ext. 2001.
