    Something needs to be done about the speeding along Beach Park Blvd. The speed limit is 35, but every day, I see drivers going well over 50 mph as if this is San Tomas Expressway. The street may be wide, but this is still a residential street, with drivers trying to pulling out of their driveways and residents trying to cross the street.
    May we explore painting the speed limits on the road? That may be more visible to these speeders.

    What can we do about Beach Park Plaza? It's a dump. It looks more like a strip mall in an abandoned part of Oakland or East SJ than Foster City.
    The property owners collect their millions in rent each year and yet they are too greedy or cheap to pay for any upkeep.
    I once complained about their trash cans overflowing. You alerted them and they SAID they would increase janitorial services to empty the trash more frequently than once a week (though I dispute that they were even emptying them that frequent at the time). That lasted about 2 weeks and then, mysteriously, the trash cans disappeared altogether. And now they have the gall to put up those pathetic signs (nailed up very poorly) that read "Put Trash In Its Place", which is ironic because there are 0 public trash cans in the plaza. So what do the patrons do? They throw their napkins, boba cups, coffee cups, etc. into the planters. This loose litter must be a haven for our neighborhood rodents.

    If they cared even a little bit about our city or residents, they would pony up the money to:
    - restore the few trash cans around the plaza.
    - pay to have the parking lot repaved- I don't believe it's ever been and it really shows.
    - pay to have the trees and planter boxes maintained.
    - pay to have the planter boxes redone- these are the same ones that have been here for over 40 years and they are falling apart.
    - pay to have the facade and signage refreshed so this vibrant, popular plaza fits, visually, in the Beach Park neighborhood where housed are $1.5 million and up.

    This plaza is visually offensive. Maybe the patrons who frequent couldn't care less, but many of us- those who I have spoken to in the immediate area- DO care and wish the owners weren't such cheapskates. There MUST be some City Ordinance that we can throw at them to force them to fix this place up.

    I want to bring my son to the beach at Gull Park (or any of the parks), but the conditions are just disgusting. See the picture. Stupid Canada Goose poop and sheer neglect makes what could be a nice asset to our city look like a polluted river in China.

    Do we have the equipment and means to clean the beach periodically? Hook one of those screens used to even out a baseball field infield to a ride on lawnmower and pull it across the beach a few times. Take a steel rake to those areas where weeds and algae have taken over.

    It doesn’t seem like it would be that difficult with the right equipment.

    This main road to and from Gilead is falling into disrepair. Lots of developing potholes, sinking areas of road, etc. It’s probably worth checking the surrounding streets as well.

    Bay Trail Foster City 94404, United States - Foster City

    Large, rusted bolts exposed on beach drift wood.

    The big pillar that lays on the shell beach off the Bay Trail at Marlin and Beach Park has some very large, rusted bolts sticking out of them. While mostly adults walk along this beachfront, these still pose a big risk for children who may play in the area or use the pillar as a balance beam. I suggest these are possibilities because it’s what I used to do growing up in this neighborhood.

    Thank you

    The last two houses on Gull Ave in the direction towards E. Hillsdale/Beach Park always have vehicles parked in front at the curb. While there is nothing illegal about this, it does create a dangerous traffic hazard for all inbound/outbound vehicles on Gull (as well as for the residents' vehicles). With parents rushing to get their children to school at Audubon, to Kids Connection, or to work, it's not uncommon for vehicles to be speeding on Gull, faster than 30 mph. Any vehicles parked on the street at this location create an accident waiting to happen.

    In the outbound direction, where the street curves to the right, it's a driver's natural inclination to hug the inner side of the curve- this is where the residents' vehicles are parked. Conversely, if that outbound driver tries to ignore this muscle tendancy, they would be drifting towards the middle of the street, with inbound vehicles on the driver's side. The presence of these parked vehicles pinches the width of the 2-way street.

    These conditions could very easily lead to the following:
    A) a head on collision between inbound/outbound vehicles.
    B) Inbound/outbound vehicles side swipe one of the residents' parked vehicles.

    A safe solution to this would be to consider making the stretch of curb from 731 Gull Ave to the end of the block at Crane Ave, a red/no parking zone (only one side of Gull Ave.) While this does create an inconvenience for the residents of the surrounding houses, it's certainly a preferable scenario to a parked vehicle-collision, or a scenario where a resident vehicle is backing out of the driveway and is T-boned by an unobservant driver on Gull Ave. In each scenario, both the driver and the resident lose.

    While I am positive the residents of these houses would not appreciate this suggestion, I am only looking out for the good of the overall neighborhood. During morning drop off hours, I have seen far too many inbound/outbound vehicles nearly side swipe each other in the middle of the street, as they negotiate the narrow opening. Reove parked cars on the outbound side of the street and the chance of this happening drops significantly.
