  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    Bay St Berkeley, CA, 94710, USA - Berkeley
    The encampment on Shellmound / Baystreet at the freeway off ramp is out of control. It has grown to look like a Mumbai slum! It is an environmentyal and health hazard. Ultimately much of that crap will end up in the bay! It is understood the people are homeless and I mean them no harm but something needs to be done. This encampment has been growing for over a year and keeps getting worse. I suspect there may be a jurisdiction dispute between Caltrans, Berkeley and Emeryville. Frankly, that is your problem to resolve, not the problem of those of us who live here. Why don't all 3 get together and work toward a solution!

    For years, AT&T technicians have been leaving their debris behind at over 20 telecommunications terminals (the green boxes) in Berkeley, littering the public easements and the street gutters leading to the Bay. The Mayor, all City Council Members, the City Manager, and AT&T Corporate officials have been aware of this problem for the last 7 months but have failed in their efforts to stop it. Please join your neighbors by sending a clear signal to city hall that we will not tolerate this continued littering in our city. This is Councilmember Linda Maio's district, lmaio@cityofberkeley.info, (510) 981-7110. Please contact her and voice your concern. Please also join us by visiting Facebook and Change.org and searching: STOP ATT LITTER

    Graffiti all over walls.
  • Claremont Ave & Ashby Ave Berkeley, CA 94705, USA - Berkeley
    The Ashby intersection at Claremont is dangerous to make left turns at and leads to unnecessary congestion on Ashby during peak hours. It'd be better and safer if there were dedicated Left Turn lanes and better still if there were a left turn signal.
  • Bay St Berkeley, CA, 94710, USA - Berkeley
    The homeless encampment tents have moved off the railroad track back onto the freeway off ramp at Shellmound Avenue, and garbage from the site is scattered everywhere on that corner now. Is it possible to get everything cleared up and prevent the tents from moving back and forth from corner to corner in the area? Also, some vehicles that get off the ramp often stop by the tents, making it unsafe for other motorists exiting the freeway. I know that homeless encampments are a big discussion point for bay area city leaders but until they figure out how to best handle the situation, as a resident in the area, it is very frustrating to see these rent encampments and related issues that come with them constantly recurring in the neighborhood.
  • Russell St And King St Berkeley, California - South Berkeley

    Ever since the recent paving work the sewer covers on Russell St just east and west of King St have been rather recessed, such that any bicycle rider who travels over them unexpectedly gets a big jolt and might possibly lose control.

    This is issue was reported previously and marked "closed" by the city but remains a problem. Please take another look at these sewer covers and soften the transition area all around them significantly, so that the surface remains smooth and safe to traverse by all modes. Thank you in advance for your attention.

    There is a group of homeless men camping on the volleyball court. They have been using a charcoal grill to cook on the court, which makes it not possible to use the space for games. They also have a significant pile of belongings and trash/urine jars. Is anything being done to move them off of this park space?
  • Bay St Berkeley, CA, 94710, USA - Berkeley
    Multiple homeless encampments on Ashby exit, the camp fills up the entire exit shoulder all the way to shellmound st. These camps are close to exiting traffic from the freeway. Multiple members with bikes, dogs are sometimes a step or two on the road and pose as a hazard to themselves and oncoming traffic.

    Expanding homeless encampment - now up to two tents holding an unknown number of persons. Material dumped at table along side of West Street Path. Again, no signs of proper human waste disposal facilities. Should they be camping here given that this is city space and is also an abandoned contaminated railroad right-of-wAy?
  • King St And Ashby Ave Berkeley, CA - South Berkeley

    When Caltrans repaved the intersection at Ashby and King St in South Berkeley (very nice, thank you) they neglected to repaint one of the yellow crosswalk lines at the south side of this intersection, and the traffic signal loop detector bicycle stencils which were half covered up by the paving work.

    Regardless of who ends up performing this work please make sure Caltrans is charged for it, since they should have taken care of it initially after completing their paving work.

    Homeless encampment. There have been multiple reports by neighbors. Concerns of safety, specially of children, and trash. Most important, this is not a solution for homelessness. Please address.
