  • 1236 Almondwood Drive Antioch, CA - Antioch
    We have squatters in1236 Almondwood Drive. The water has been shut off twice, now they go around the neighborhood with blue 5 gallon water bottles sneaking and asking for water. There's different people coming and going at all times of the day and night.they have a dog that barks all the time and is allowed to run loose up and down the street. There's at least 8 people at times living in the house which includes kids. This needs to be addressed. If anyone knows where I can look up the property owner, I am more than happy to contact them!
  • 2902 Vessing Road Pleasant Hill, CA 94523, USA - Pleasant Hill
    When turning from Vessing Road onto Geary Road, the new sidewalk (from Dorthy to Vessing) indents, allowing cars to park on Geary. If there are cars parked there, it is impossible to see oncoming traffic traveling west on Geary from Vessing. This makes turning either way on Geary extremely dangerous. The picture was taken from Vessing in the spot where we are positioned to turn onto Geary. Note that the moving car in the picture would be completely blocked by a parked car. This design flaw needs to be corrected. Cars leaving Vessing Road are already challenged by cars from Creston turning onto Geary without paying attention to us. This makes leaving my neighborhood very dangerous.

    600-776 Wilbur Ave Antioch, CA 94509, USA - Antioch
    Perhaps patrolling this area wouldn't be such a bad idea. Gunshots are heard constantly.
  • 2175 Willow Pass Road Bay Point, California - Concord

    I was at the playground at Todos Santos a week ago and saw a bunch of cockroaches crawling around in the tanbark and up the sides of the granite wall/seating area around the play structure. There were a few large ones and lots of small ones. Some of the kids were even chasing the large cockroaches and poking them with sticks.

    I don't know what brought the cockroaches there, and I shudder to think how many of them might be lurking under the tanbark, but I hope this gets taken care of.

  • Shuey Avenue Walnut Creek, CA - Walnut Creek
    Poor lighting along Shuey Ave and Almond makes it unsafe for females to walk home from Bart or downtown alone. Other areas have much better lighting. I try not to drive as to not clog up bart/ downtown parking or waste gas but it is unsafe after sun down when I get home from work. :( Uneven side walks with poor lighting makes it even more unsafe.
  • 336 West 10th Street Antioch, CA - Antioch
    Reported to city maintenance weeks ago but nothing has been done. This is a sketchy neighborhood at night please fix this ASAP!
  • Contra Costa Canal Trail Walnut Creek, CA 94597, USA - Waldon
    This section of the Contra Costa Canal Trail is full of deep potholes. They either shake up the bikers rather badly, or cause them to cross over to the other side of the trails which frequently leads to close calls, in particular in the curve
  • 810-1014 Wilbur Avenue Antioch, California - Antioch
    Speed limit is 40-45 on Wilbur Ave but the drivers don't respect the signs on Minaker where is says SPEED LIMIT 25. How else can we prevent crazy drivers to slow down?? Should we wait until one of our kids is ran over?! If there were a few more cops just cruising around this area, they'd give a good amount of tickets & probably catch a junkie drug dealer or two.
