    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?
  • 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.

  • 2430 9th Street Berkeley, CA 94710, USA - Berkeley
    The Bicycle Boulevard sign was knocked down on the east side of 9th St just north of Dwight Way.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • 920 62nd Street Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Santa Fe
