  • 2544 73rd Avenue Oakland, California - Eastmont
    There seems to be a great deal of construction going on behind the metal door at what looks like the old soul beat or school that burned down here before. While passing by the metal door was open and there are several mobile homes parked very close to one another. The is trash and debris every where. People are living on what was a burned down school lot with no running water. Last time people were allowed to squat here a fire broke out and a friend of mines home was burned severely. she and her family had to relocate for over a year and a half. Someone from the city should check things out to make sure there is no Ghost Ship type activities going on here as I don't recall there being a mobile home park in this neighborhood ever.
  • Hillen And Madera Oakland California - Maxwell Park
    Stop sign is missing. There is no stop sign. There is no red at the corner and on occasions where the church is having a gathering folks park on the corner. If there was a stop sign here they would have to park normal a few feet away from the corner. There is no incentive to stop without a stop sign. I often see neighbors go right through when making a right or left turn with no regard for traffic coming up or down Madera. It poses a safety hazard and there should be a sign and painted corners.
  • 2878 Macarthur Boulevard Oakland California - Upper Dimond
    Huge crater on Macarthur in the street heading toward Coolidge. I had to dodge the entire thing by pulling to the left. Otherwise my whole tire would have went into the hole in the ground. I may be off by a few feet with the map but you can't miss it.

    1009 66th Ave Oakland, California - Lockwood Tevis
    Aspire charter school on 66th ave. had the city paint the curb in front of their school red limiting parking to the community. This an already crowded neighborhood with limited parking. There needs to be a sign like in front of the rest of the schools that states "no parking between 8am-4pm" This would remedy the residents and visitors to this low-income area getting expensive parking tickets The curb should have never been painted red and a school should not have been placed on a street with two-lane street without a traffic study being done in the 1st place.
  • 5500 Bancroft Avenue Oakland, California - Seminary
    Right behind apt building across from the auto body shop. Trash litters the entire sidewalk. You cannot even walk down the side walk. Someone is dumping and trying to blight a neighborhood that is already messed up. Looks like someone from a neighborhood close by dumped their old stuff

    Large pot hole almost popped a tire this morning. This street is raggedy and needs to be fixed. Pics to follow
  • 6475 Foothill Blvd Oakland, California - Bancroft Business-Havenscourt
    Old cars that don't move have been here for months. This issue leaves people with no where to park. Their remedy double park or park in the middle of the street. I suspect these old cars are coming from the neighboring auto repair centers. but the cars need to be tagged and towed. It is a hazard the to through traffic and the Ac Transit buses that come through there daily.
  • 2845 64th Oakland, California - Frick
    The school is flanked with old cars that I suspect are coming from the neighboring auto repair centers. Especially along the foothill side of the school where the kids wait for the bus. Let's do what we can and give the kids a nice start to the school year and clean it up. Tag the cars and have them towed. I have seen the cops, tow trucks, and the sweeper come through but month after month these same cars are still there.
