The shooting on the morning of April 13th outside of shadow ultra lounge makes that the 10th shooting at that address in the last 3 years. That's probably some sort of record. Any chance that the operator of the nightclub could be evicted under the nuisance ordinance? Or do we have to get to 20 shootings before something can be done?
The pedestrian crossing (at W Grand and Valley st) from one side of Grand to the other side is increasingly getting more usage. However, cars often speed through this area of Grand Ave without noticing pedestrians. There are currently NO pedestrian crossing signs at this intersection and it is dangerous. We are requesting pedestrian crossing signs be installed and better painted lines. Ideally, we should also have blinking warning lights that can be triggered by pedestrians.
The multi-family building under construction next to the climbing gym is occupying the sidewalk and had cordon-ed off a temporary crossing that was working well. Last week, the temporary crossing became a storage area for rebar and pedestrians are being directed to cross mid-block. This is a very un-safe situation. There is too much of a desire line to stay on the north side of the street, and I keep seeing people walking in the street instead of crossing. The street also has a lot of AC Transit buses running on it that don't mix well with pedestrians walking in the street. The buildings on the north side of the street include the County Social Services building, Uptown Place condos, SEIU, and climbing gym. Please require them to keep this crossing open. I am attaching a picture of a man in a walker crossing in the street here. Every day, I see something like this. Thanks in advance for your attention to this.
Please stop the valet service at 2101 Webster Street from routinely double parking in and blocking the dedicated bike lanes as part of its normal operations. This is not a once-in-a-while thing, but every day. Please send parking enforcement to ticket these vehicles and encourage the valet service to move operations to a more suitable location.
At the commercial loading dock on 23rd St and Broadway and across the street at Numi Tea (400 23rd St) dumpsters and trash cans are routinely left uncovered and blocking the public right of way well outside of normal trash collection hours. The building manager for both properties has been repeatedly notified yet the problem persists.
Southbound Webster Street is a busy bike lake with heavy morning commute traffic with bicycles and vehicles. The 2101 Webster Valet Parking and Laundry create large numbers of double parking cars on a daily basis blocking the bike lane, even if there is curb space. This creates a hazard for bicyclists who are forces into the traffic lane.
994 42nd Street (Linden Park) Oakland, California - Downtown
Mattress, bedding, clothing are hidden behind foliage on the East Side of Linden Park. Please remove and sanitize as this is directly adjacent and to the North of the play structure for the youngest of children at this City park. Additionally, school opens next week for the public K-8 school who frequent this park.
Broadway Between 5th And 6th Oakland, CA - Downtown
Please clean the area between 5th and 6th on the sidewalk along Broadway in downtown Oakland. The overwhelming smell of urine and bird (and other?) feces has reached a point that one can no longer walk through the area without a visceral reaction. I actually gag and heave every time I walk through. It is worse on the west side of the street than the eastern side. It is an area traversed often by pedestrians. I do not have a photo.
