1-199 Webster Street Tube Oakland, California - AlamedaAt all entrances into the city, we are lacking prominently placed signs that clearly indicate the 25 MPH speed limit. As one enters the city from Webster Tube, the signs state the 45 mph speed limit which I think sends the wrong message. This 45 mph speed is assumed by many drivers for some distance as they drive into town. I would request that we work with CalTrans, if necessary, to update this and have all entryways into Alameda clearly message the 25 mph limit to help reduce confusion.
800 Atlantic Ave Alameda, California - AlamedaThere is the smell of fire coming from the Jane Sweeney park again this am at around the 800 block of Atlantic where homeless enter in through the cut fence. There is also many piles of garbage left that include but are not limited to clothing, gasoline cans, alcohol bottles, and human waste. The homeless encampments have grown now to over 25 and still growing creating a safety issue and a health hazard. and the camps need to be cleaned up after the requirement of a 72 notice and persons there should be directed to facilities that are able to help them if they are interested.
Tynan Ave And Mariner Square Dr Alameda, California - AlamedaPedestrian crosswalk needed at this intersection. Pedestrians from AC transit bus stop at Webster St. and Stargell Ave have no safe way to cross Mariner Square Dr. into the Marina Village business park. Cost Plus World Market recently relocated to this business park with over 300 employees now commuting here daily.
2252-2268 Otis Dr Alameda, CA 94501, USA - AlamedaFence along Powell Street is in disrepair. The chain link fence posts are pulled out of the ground. The fence is rusty. The top railing of the chain link fence is bent. The wood fence is broken. And the concrete pillars are broken off. All in all, it seems unsafe as well as generally run down and forgotten.
1821 Grand St Alameda, California - AlamedaTraffic Time Bomb: HIbbard Street and Eagle Ave are becoming a cut through for traffic heading down Clement Ave. to Park St. Speeding cars turn from Buena Vista to Eagle to Grand to avoid the left turn bottleneck at Buena Vista and Eagle. They drive above the speed limit on Hibbard, make a wide right turn onto Eagle Ave. into oncoming traffic. Cars also come the other direction on Hibbard from the new marina houses and speed up to Buena Vista or turn too fast on Eagle Ave. A THREE-WAY stop at the T-Intersection and/or speed bumps on this one block stretch of Hibbard and/or Eagle Ave. would REALLY help. City of Alameda please do something before there is a fatality here.
2015 Grand St Alameda, CA - AlamedaThese Oil storage tanks are rusting badly and are directly across from single family homes. Its curious that the City allowed these homes to be built so close to this industrial petroleum storage facility, as I see children playing very close to this property quite frequently, but can something be done about these eyesores? Aside from the question of maintenance (if Pennzoil maintains the exterior of their tanks like this, what priority do they give for other maintenance and safety protocols?), can the City cite them for being an eyesore (Nuisance Conditions)? The planning department indicated to me that this area has been rezoned as residential and Pennzoil was grandfathered in, but it seems they should be required to maintain their storage tanks properly. Thanks in advance to our City officials for looking into this matter and advising if anything can be done (e.g is there no requirement that they properly maintain and routinely paint these huge, very publicly visible storage tanks?).
Webster And Atlantic Alameda, California - Alameda
There is MASSIVE gridlock at Atlantic/Webster as well as Webster/Stargell every 1st Sunday of the month due to the Antiques Fair at the Point. Cars often jump the light and end up obstructing through traffic at both intersections.
This has been brought to the attention of APD several times over the past few years, but nothing has been done to fix the problem.
How much longer do we have to wait for a solution?
660 Taylor Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda
Dear City Manager,
I am writing to you regarding the conditions at Webster and Taylor. Specifically, conditions within 200 feet west of this intersection.
All of the following have been reported via SeeClickFix.
1. There are dozens of tags on the historic building and property at 1431 Webster Street. Code Enforcement is non responsive.
2. The front yard of 645 Taylor has been paved over for parking. As a result, the adjacent sidewalk is broken. Code Enforcement found the property in violation, but the parking lot is still there and the sidewalk is still broken.
3. Ongoing and never ending dumping of trash near this intersection. The No Dumping sign has graffiti on it.
4. Broken sidewalks, including sidewalks repaved with asphalt.
5. Broken storm drains.
6. Roads and sidewalks that do not drain due to faulty grades.
7. Roadway long overdue for reconstruction.
8. The City operated parking lot at Webster and Taylor was closed several years ago and no replacement parking was created. The project approved for this location seems to be in abeyance.
This area suffered decades of disinvestment due to redlining based on race and class discrimination.
I urge you to visit this location and take action to remedy these and other problems. It is long overdue that the City address these type of problems and the longstanding injustices that helped to create and perpetuate them.
