Public hearing will address zoning changes

A series of zoning changes in Malden will be the subject of a public hearing this week. The changes would shift portions of Main Street, Ferry Street, and Eastern Avenue from highway business zones to central business zones, as well as convert 39 to 41 Chester St. from residentially zoned to residential office. The public hearing, conducted by the Planning Board, takes place Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Malden Government Center.
