Re: Malden + Melrose

This is a site with 5 minute bus service to Malden Ctr, and a not unpleasant walk on more temperate days. It's tucked out of the way. I could understand not wanting to add traffic to the Fellsway E, but it sucks to see Malden blow it here. Why not seize the opportunity to build housing where no one else is?

It's a symptom of hyper local governance. When you have a city that is basically a neighborhood of a larger city controlled 100% locally the NIMBYs have more power.
