    607-23rd Street Oakland, California - Northgate
    Homeless encampments on both sides of 23rd Street between MLK & Northgate. Pedestrians must walk into the street in the path of vehicle traffic. The photo shows that because the sidewalk is blocked by tents, a handicap person traveling in the street used by vehicles. Very dangerous. An injury accident just waiting to happen.

    Why is the City allowing homeless encampments blocking sidewalks on BOTH sides of our 23rd Street? Family residents with children can only walk on the street in traffic with automotive vehicles. This is an imminent danger all pedestrians in this residential street.

    A Camper Trailer is illegally parked in 607 23rd Street driveway. It completely blocks the sidewalk and sticks out over 3 feet into the street. It dangerous because I almost hit it driving out of a street parking space. Handicap wheel chairs can not pass on the sidewalk.

    This Homeless Encampment 23rd Street is getting way-out-of-hand. This issue is being going on for over 3 years and nothing yet has anything been done about it . This is a residential street with children living here. Now this encampment is camped in front of our home. This is private property. Will the City do something about it or does it cares about it taxpaying citizens?

    A 25 foot Camper Trailer is parked in the driveway of 607-23rd Street. It is so long that it blocks the entire sidewalk so that pedestrians must walk into the street to pass.

    The homeless encampment on this block is getting out of hand. This is the third time that I reported that a homeless person defecated on my property and the City does nothing to remove this encampment on a residential street. It was so gross to clean this mess that I not going to take this sitting down anymore. This can not continue. Since the City is not going to do anything, the next time I will confront this person and if it doesn't go well, someone is going to get hurt.

  • 607-23rd Street Oakland, California - Northgate
    Illegal dumping from the homeless encampment on both sides of our street. When is the City going to get these encampments out of our residential street? This is going on for over a year and nothing is done. Haven't we suffer enough?

  • 621 23rd Street Oakland, California - Northgate
    After multiple protracted fixes by the City, the homeless encampments are back with all the trash and filth. The tents are so large that the sidewalk is totally unusable. After each clean-up, they just move back in within a day.
  • 23rd Street & Mlk Oakland, California - Northgate
    A homeless encampment is just starting on 23rd Street. This is encroaching on a residential street. The trash and filth is beginning to pile-up in our neighborhood.

    The homeless encampments are back after a few months of hiatus. Presently there are two tents camped on Cal Trans property. They are very hostile people. I was trying to get a closer picture when one of them said that he will break my camera and my face. A very bad and dangerous element on our block.
  • Northgate & 23rd Street Oakland, California - Northgate

    Dear Cal Tran. Please send your weekly clean-up crew. It's very fifty because we made a big mess. We moved just over the fence on Oakland City Street while you are doing your clean-up. We will move back after you do our clean-up

    Thanks
    Your Tent City Encampment

    This is my second posting to report this issue. The first posting claims that a Moderator is reviewing it. To me that means that all posting are screened to their liking.

    The report is that the Homeless Encampment is moved from the other side of the fence into City of Oakland's City Streets. They do this because they need their weekly clean-up of their fifth. It's not rocket science to figure out their pattern. If you look at the attached photo, it looks the same as before but it is not. Just look at the date. They do this again, again and again. Same old scene but with a different date.

    Today, a large crew with heavy equipment and trucks kick-out and clean-up the homeless encampment behind the fence on Cal Tran Property. In total disbelief, they just moved all of the tents to the other side of the fence onto City Sidewalk right in front of the Cal Tran crew that was supervised by CHP !!!!! If you look at the photo, at the end of the block, you will see a grey tent with a red stripe on the bottom, behind this tent you can see the CHP patrol SUV. In other words, they set-up tent right in front of the CHP Officer and he could do nothing or don't want to do anything about it. Wow, I think we totally screwed !!!!

    On 8/18/15 report #1854761, I wrote, "Things are getting uglier. They are very raucous at night. Not safe. Neighbors are getting very upset. It's just a matter of time when something bad is going to happen." Well, I was right ! On 9/2/15 someone was shot and killed on MLK between 23rd & 24th Street. Just today, 3 days later, on 9/5/15, a dead body was found inside one of the tents on 23rd Street. All the homeless people abandoned their tents in fear of police interrogation. With 2 dead bodies within 3 days, isn't this enough cause for the City to do something or is this a sanction killing zone?
