  • Pothole Archived
    Ravenswood Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    This isn't a pothole, but it was the best choice for description. When, oh when, is the horrific raised asphalt on the SB side of the rail road tracks going to be fixed. Even going Very Slowly over it, my car is jostled around to the point that groceries spilled all over the back seat of the car. This is dangerous and particularly so for a drive who doesn't expect to be thrown around, nearly into the adjacent lane. What is the timeline for fixing this?

    Corner of garwood and glenwood, there's always lots of junk dumped by the "donation" box. Why is the box there and can it be removed? It seems to just attract illegal dumping
  • Menlo Ave & University Dr Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    The crosswalk spanning University Ave by Menlo Ave (by Drager's) is confusing to motorists and dangerous to pedestrians. Driving down University towards Middle, motorists must contend with a) a strange double stop, b) a sudden, car-length split into left-turn/straight lanes, and c) an angled crosswalk. Moreover, signs/instructions are placed in unexpected locations. These unique features lead to cognitive overload, especially when pedestrians are present - it often becomes unclear as to who has right of way. While crossing this crosswalk earlier today (proceeding towards the side opposite Drager's), I was nearly struck by a driver heading towards Middle in the "straight" lane (on the far side of Drager's). While the driver was at the first stop sign, I began to cross, but a stopped car in the left-turn lane obscured the driver's view of me. By the time the driver was at the second stop sign, I was in the middle of the crosswalk and hidden by the driver's A-pillar. The car came within a foot of running me over and didn't see me until I was at their window. I have witnessed other close calls at this intersection as well. I'm not sure what the specific solution is, but my general feeling is that the intersection/crosswalk needs to be simplified. I don't believe the orange flags at this intersection are adequate (and seem unsafe given COVID-19).
  • 875 University Dr Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    A gas powered leaf blower was used to loft dust and noxious fumes at both 875 University Dr and 907 Oak Ln, at 9:30 am on Sep 15, a Spare the Air day, in violation of City code section 8.07.030.
  • Downtown Menlo Park Menlo Park, CA, USA - Menlo Park
    Please address the issue of homeless squatting in downtown Menlo Park. Amanda, who is now spread out all over the old Flegels storefront and adjoining properties, and with carts all over Santa Cruz Ave, is now continuously shouting out at people. She really frightened a young family downtown today , as they passed, ( 6 ft apart- they have to walk in street to avoid her encampment). I spoke with a public health person a few weeks ago who was checking in on our group of homeless downtown, and the she said Amanda refused to be checked medically, so she just let her be. During a public health crisis, this is not safe for her or for the city. She is truly in need of some sort of assistance. I have observed her for the past few years, and this new behavior of shouting/screaming at herself and others needs some attention.
  • Sidewalk Archived
    El Camino Real & Middle Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park

    About 3 weeks ago, ticket #11577397 was filed re. the months-stalled handicap ramp upgrade construction project at the corner of Middle and El Camino (by the Safeway).

    City of MP responded that "Information has been given to the Construction Inspection team who will conduct a field investigation and contact the contractor for the project." and the ticket has now been archived so further comments/votes are not possible.

    Since then, there has still been no progress. This is a MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE for pedestrians - especially teens commuting to M-A, who have no safe way to cross this intersection (there is no 2nd crosswalk to cross El Camino on the other corner of this intersection) - and a danger for cars who need to navigate around pedestrians walking in the street because the sidewalk is barricaded off. During the last heavy rains, 2 lanes were flooded and closed, presumably due to the project impacting the storm drain. That's likely to happen again with the new storms coming.

    PLEASE DO NOT JUST REFER THIS AND CLOSE IT AGAIN - this needs to be fixed before someone gets hurt or killed. Can someone please follow this up until it is resolved? It has literally been many, many months that this intersection has been unusable for pedestrians due to this stalled construction.

  • 633 Santa Cruz Ave Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    Hello. There is a person everyday using the corner of Santa Cruz and Doyle, in front of the Bank of America Building, as his office. He is hooking up to the public electrical outlet to charge his phone and computer. At 830pm on 8/8, the attached pictures show that he left 3 large water containers, his electrical charger, plastic fold up table and other items. How can this be allowed? This is essentially an encampment. What are your thoughts?
  • Graffiti Archived

    Graffiti on fencing and utility boxes on East OKeefe side of street.
  • 690 Coleman Ave Menlo Park CA - Menlo Park
    This car has been speeding up and down Coleman ave - at least 40/50 mph several times.
  • Sidewalk Archived
    Ravenswood Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    The #1 lane (Far left lane) on Eastbound Ravenswood Ave. from El Camino before the train tracks is in terrible shape and very uneven. There's literally no speed (5-10mph -25mph) that you can be in that lane without your car being tossed from side to side because of the road surface, presumably from tree roots under the pavement. Is it possible to level this? I've been a resident for 10+ years and feels like this is always patched but never fixed.
  • Santa Cruz Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    Hillview School bicycle traffic before and after school is very dangerous. I encourage bike riding but having students ride on opposite sides of the road and on sidewalks is going to end up in an accident. The are 9 or 10 streets that come out on Santa Cruz Ave. Many drivers are looking left first when coming to a stop and when it is clear, they accelerate. A bicyclist going in the wrong direction in the bike lane or sidewalk could be struck. I encourage your department to go to the school, educate the students, and enforce for a day or two. This would easily solve, what could be a disaterous situation. Thank you for your attention on this matter. John Worthing

    It just doesn't stop... something needs to be done. I already made one report about the mattress. Then Sunday night this was all does at 10:42pm. Cameras? No littering signs?
