Mayor’s Problem Properties Unit - “Preserving Our Neighborhoods One Ward at a Time”
The Problem Properties Unit (PPU) under the direction of Mayor Gary Christenson continues to meet bi-weekly to address the nuisance properties in our neighborhoods; including illegal rooming houses and properties presenting safety hazards and code violations. Last year, Attorney Barbara Durgin, a member of the Unit on behalf of the Malden Redevelopment Authority, organized the initiative of “Preserving our Neighborhoods One Ward at a Time.” On Wednesday, June 11th at 11:00 AM members of the Unit will walk the neighborhood of Ward 2 with City Councillor Steve Ultrino. The Unit will meet at Pisa Pizza on Pearl Street. The Unit will be able to observe firsthand some of the properties in the area that are of concern to residents. Anyone who would like to report a property or participate in the neighborhood walk may call 781-873-0230 or submit a report on-line at www.cityofmalden.org.
