  • Street Signs Acknowledged
    Stanton And Buena Vista Alameda, California - Alameda
    Can a stop sign or a traffic signal be put up in Stanton and buena vista. I'm trying to cross the street with my kids and no one is stopping for the cross walk. Over the last two weeks I've nearly been run over several times.
  • Entrance Rd Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    Traffic has become dangerous at this intersection, with more cars turning on and off of Buena Vista, and crossing as a pedestrian or bike is nearly impossible. Cars regularly drive this stretch of BV between 40 & 60 mph. Please install the planned 3-way stop now, before a bad crash or pedestrian fatality occurs.
  • 1803 Stanton St Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda

    I'm going to keep posting for this until someone takes action. I nearly witnessed a young woman in front of me nearly get run over by a van tonight speeding down Buena Vista. It's now very dark when many of us get home from work this time a year and this intersection DESPERATELY needs some sort of crosswalk light to signal that people are crossing the street. Many people park their cars along the road also blocking view of pedestrians attempting to cross.

    We are also entering into the wet season when it takes more time to slow to a stop. Either get a cop out here to patrol and fine speeders, a mph warning sign, or install a @#$% crossing light here already! The Marina Shores community has been asking for one for 2 years now. There are also people speeding down Clement, you can work on that issue next.

    What will it take- a dead pedestrian -for you to FINALLY take action? This is ridiculous!

  • 1542 Buena Vista Ave Alameda, California - Alameda
    Most of the traffic on Buena Vista Ave between Sherman and Grand is in excess of the posted speed limit. This has gotten worse with the recent development in front of Fortmann Marina and the lack of controls is endangering the health and property of the community. Please confirm the need for some type of control ( Sign / Light / Bumps, etc...) on this section of city road to reduce the risk to the community and the city. Thank you...
  • Sherman Street At Wind River Del Monte Building Alameda, California - Alameda
    There were a number of homeless encampments growing at the rear of the Wind River parking lot and inside the fenced off open field area between Wind River and Del Monte building. Police worked with these folks and eventually had them leave this week and cleaned up all garbage left. Some have returned but now have cut a large hole in the fence and are camping inside the fenced area. They also cut the gate lock to the fenced area.
  • 1501 Buena Vista Ave Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    Growing homeless tent city behind Del Monte warehouse in the fenced off area.
  • 1703 Pacific Ave Alameda CA 94501, United States - Alameda
    City owns this. Please maintain! Mow lawns, sweep and weed the walkways!!
  • Stanton St & Buena Vista Ave Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda

    Hi -

    Please consider putting in a crosswalk similar to https://lanelight.com/crosswalks-rrfb/ at Buena Vista & Stanton.

    Too many drivers use this street like a highway and we have had challenges crossing the street and when we are able to cross drivers don't slow down. Having the flashing lights would draw attention that there is/are pedestrian(s) trying to cross the street.

    The safety of Alameda residents and guests appreciate this.

    Thanks.
    JK

  • 1532 Buena Vista Ave Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda

    I just witnessed a City truck going in excess of 40 miles per hour down Buena Vista eastbound, accelerating like they were meeting on the highway. The truck was driven by a male maintenance worker. They may have been public works or rec and park.

    Please remind your employees that it is their responsibility to drive safely and obey the law. Please also remind them that they are a very visible representation of our city government and their misdeeds will be looked at negatively by the community.

    Please also remind them that the first and foremost duty of any public worker is to protect the public good and safety. Driving at excessive speeds down residential streets is not appropriate or acceptable.

  • 1803 Stanton St Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    I would like to propose a flashing crosswalk sign here similar to those used on Park street. Because of street parking, it is oftentimes difficult to see pedestrians on the sidewalk trying to cross and cars speed down the road. At night it is very dangerous trying to cross Buena Vista after exiting the bus.
  • 1412 Pacific Alameda, California - Alameda
    Tenants of this property dumped several mattresses and headboards as well as an office chair and propped them up against a utility pole. These have been there for several days now. Couldn't they have ordered a garbage pick up or dumpster instead of leaving these on the sidewalk and curb?
  • Pacific Ave. At Paru St - Alameda
    Please make Paru/Pacific a 4-way stop. Cars speed through the stop signs on Pacific and we have witnessed many collision close calls at this intersection.
