An entire section of sidewalk (almost 1 block) is missing.
Dear Sir or Madam:
Thank you for contacting the Public Works Agency regarding this matter. However, additional information is needed before your request can be processed. Are you reporting that a section of sidewalk has been removed? Or is it that there is no sidewalk on this particular block? If sidewalks are nonexistent, then the owners of the adjacent parcel are responsible for the installation of new sidewalks.
Also,the maintenance and repair of sidewalks is the responsibility of the property owner per Section 5610 of the California State Street and Highways code and Section 12.04 of the Oakland Municipal Code. These codes require property owners to repair and maintain their sidewalks, except where sidewalk damage is caused by an official City of Oakland tree, in which case the City's current policy is to take on those repairs.
There is no sidewalk on this section at all, I'm not sure if there ever was one though it seems unusual if not given there is sidewalk for the rest of the block. It is dangerous and uneven and disproportionately impacts the elderly or people with a disability or mobility issues.
Can you assess this and either provide sidewalk, or enforce the Municipal codes you reference upon the property owner to take action please?
Public status changes are not available for this issue.
