Malden River, MA, Design Forum Scheduled

On Wednesday, December 14, 2011, the Malden River will be the subject of a free public “design forum” at the Malden Public Library, located at 36 Salem Street in Malden, Massachusetts. Students from the Boston Architectural College (BAC) will present their designs for improvements to the Malden River corridor.

Malden Youth who worked at Tri-City Community Action Program, Inc. (Tri-CAP) during the summer to study the Malden River will also be on hand to share their design work. Representatives from the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) will display information about how these innovative designs fit into the larger context of the Mystic River Watershed, of which the Malden River is a part.

The informal “gallery-style” event will run from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the original wing of the Malden Public Library. Attendees should enter the library from the Salem Street entrance, and the handicapped-accessible Park Street main entrance will be open, as well.

BAC students and professors will be present to discuss their work from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Professors from the BAC and the youth from Tri-CAP will make brief remarks to frame and explain their design projects at 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided, courtesy of the Malden Redevelopment Authority.
