    West Street Berkeley, CA 94702, USA - Berkeley
    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?
  • 2617 Le Conte Ave Berkeley California - Berkeley
    The owner of 2617 Le Conte Avenue keeps her yard-debris cart in the street on a permanent basis, using it as a traffic barrier. She was repeatedly advised that the BMC forbids it, yet she has been persisting in this behavior for many months, beginning last year. The photo was taken this morning, Wednesday, 14 March 2018.
  • 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.
  • West Street Berkeley, CA 94702, USA - Berkeley
    Trash filled tent spilling onto greenway. Has been a problem since December.
  • 3325–3347 Martin Luther King Jr Way Berkeley CA 94703, United States - North Oakland
    Massive amount of dumped items and loose stuffing material everywhere.
  • 1949 Milvia Street Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    For several days there has been a large stack of junk on the sidewalk near Krishna Copy Center.

  • Alcatraz Ave And King St Berkeley, CA - South Berkeley

    The intersection of Alcatraz Ave and King St in south Berkeley has a 2-way stop for traffic on King St, but no stop for traffic on Alcatraz going east or west. Alcatraz is a car arterial but King St is a highly trafficked bike boulevard and pedestrian corridor.

    Even with the existing flashing beacons on the crosswalk pedestrians still find it very difficult to cross Alcatraz here because drivers just don't yield, and with the poor sightlines due to all the curbside parking and the fast vehicle speeds on Alcatraz, cyclists on King St also find it very difficult and dangerous to cross here, even after stopping and yielding to cross traffic.

    I think the solution to this problem would be to either turn the 2-way stop into a 4-way stop at this intersection, or install a traffic signal that is timed to coordinate with the one at Alcatraz and Adeline. During the busiest hours Alcatraz traffic backs up all the way past King St, but motorists continue to block the intersection and fail to let cross traffic through. As such, a stop sign or traffic signal here would allow the bike boulevard traffic to make it past Alcatraz usually without even impacting the vehicles on that street at all.

  • 826 University Avenue Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    A large (approx. 15" x 10") homeless encampment has been erected beneath the University Avenue overpass at the intersection of University Avenue and 4th Street. This is the primary thoroughfare between local apartment complexes (The Aquatic, Fourth & U, Avalon) and the 4th Street shopping area. This large homeless encampment is a major health and safety risk to residents and passersby. It is requested that this encampment be peacefully removed as soon as possible. Thank you
  • 6711-6799 San Pablo Ave Emeryville, CA, 94608, USA - Golden Gate
    There is an ancient redwood tree with a circumference of 150 inches, which is a heritage tree that was hacked by a developer. There were no permits pulled and the owner of the property did not grant access. It was not done by an arborist and the tree was trimmed about 40 percent only on the side of the developer. The tree is now dangerous and it it's too heavy for the way it was trimmed. It's a the address 6105 San Pablo Ave close to Marshall. Please do not share my information to the developer that did this illegaly.
  • 1800 63rd Street berkeley, California - South Berkeley
    4 tents have popped back up on the east side of the Bart tells again at the intersection of 63rd and MLK.
    it is unsanitary and they are not part of the approved encampment on the west side of the tracks.
  • 1930 Hearst Ave Berkeley, CA, 94709, USA - Berkeley
    There are now three (3) separate tents with attendant piles of stuff on the block of Hearst Avenue between Milvia and MLK,Jr. Way. This is in direct violation of the local ordinance restricting encampments in residential areas. In addition, these tents/piles are obstructing the sidewalk and in one case, continually spilling into the street and bike lane. One tent is directly next to the North Berkeley Senior Center at the corner of MLK, Jr. Way. Another is a bit further east on the same side of the street (north) and the pile of stuff that has been present for over one year is further east of that one. The tent at the corner of MLK, Jr. Way has been there for at least two days without removal, and it appears that this has emboldened another urban camper to erect a second one. At this rate, that stretch of Hearst will become overrun with tents and piles of stuff. This is all within a residential area, directly across the street from homes and adjacent to Ohlone park where there are play structures and a tot land. Please immediately remove these tents and piles. This is a clear public health hazard, a violation of the ban on encampments in residential areas, a clear violation of the quantity of things permitted on public sidewalks, a clear obstruction of public sidewalks, etc., etc. What is it going to take to get this stuff removed?!!!!
