[ARCHIVED] Survey Seeks Community Input on Multi-family Housing for MBTA Communities Zoning Law

The City of Malden invites members of the community to respond to a survey on multifamily housing being conducted pursuant to the new MBTA Communities Zoning Law. The survey is open between July 10 and September 15, 2023 and is available online at the following link: and in paper form at Malden City Hall, 215 Pleasant Street, and the Malden Public Library, 36 Salem Street. 

This survey is the City’s second phase of community engagement regarding the new state law known as the MBTA Communities Zoning Law (M.G.L. c. 40A, Section 3A). This law requires Malden and other communities with an MBTA rapid transit station to enact zoning laws that allow the development of multifamily housing by right no later than December 31, 2023. Following the City’s June public hearing, the survey is an additional opportunity for the public to provide feedback on the potential zoning scenarios being considered to achieve compliance with the new law. The survey was designed by Stantec Urban Places, the City consultant for the project, as well as Mayor Gary Christenson’s working group, comprised of City staff from the Office of Strategic Planning & Community Development, the City Planner, Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora, and Ward 6 Councillor Steve Winslow. 

For more information on the project, please visit the City webpage at or contact City Planner Michelle Romero at mromero@cityofmalden.or
