I commute with my kids through this area. I want to keep up with things.

  • Sidewalk Acknowledged
    4822 Telegraph Oakland, California - Temescal
    Clients of The Avenue openly flaunt the dive bar's own sign, and the staff there refuse to enforce it. Time to take action!
  • 383 40th Street Oakland, California - Temescal
    At the east end of the building, as seen in the upper left of the photograph.
  • 55th Street And Dover Intersection Oakland, California - Bushrod
    A crosswalk has been needed for years at the intersection of 55th Street and Dover, between MLK and Shattuck Avenue. Cars drive at advanced speeds and pass other cars since the street is quite wide (even with the addition of the bike lanes neighbors suggested). Due to its location between several freeway on and off ramps, along with the street's width, drivers treat this stretch of road as a freeway extension. At the residential intersection of 55th and Dover, residents and neighborhood visitors and Children's Hospital Oakland employees (often children and seniors) routinely cross to reach the hospital, the popular Dover Street Park (@Dover/59th), the North Senior Oakland Senior Center, CHORI, and the bus stops (two well-used AC Transit lines run down 55th Street) on either side of the street. Although not a formal bike route, Dover Street is also heavily utilized by bicyclists. Crossing for pedestrians and bikers is often an impossible task due to the lack of signage and a steady stream of speeding cars (some passing other cars in the oncoming lane at even higher speeds). It is particularly difficult to cross during the winter, when residents coming home from work must disembark from buses and try to cross the street after dark (and sometimes in the rain). Pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers would benefit greatly from a large reflective thermoplast crosswalk and reflective signage at 55th/Dover to alert drivers to the presence of pedestrians (particularly children and seniors) for whom they should slow down.
  • 3917 Opal Street Oakland, CA - Mosswood
    Covering an entire side of a large mailbox. How long does it take to deal with a simple issue like this?
  • 5707 Dover St. Oakland, California - Bushrod

    Fence and Slide are broken at Dover Street Park.

    Reference number for slide is 447309
    Reference number for fence is 454807

    We have been waiting for more than 5 weeks for a fix. Gotta wonder if our long wait time is because we live below Shattuck Ave.

    At the address indicated.
  • 490 40th Street Oakland, California - Temescal
    Atop the roof at A&F Auto Parts.
  • Blcoked Sidewalk Acknowledged
    3880 Shafter Oakland, California - Mosswood
    Cars in the driveway at this address are forcing pedestrians, including those with strollers and wheelchairs, out into the street. The big SUV (License 7EVB014) is a constant offender.
  • 56th And Adeline Oakland, California - Santa Fe

    Adeline Street in Oakland from the Emeryville border north to 61st Street is being repaved and re-striped with a road diet and buffered bicycle lanes (great!), but no new marked crosswalks are being added along this entire stretch as part of the project, even though they are warranted by the city's own design policies (See http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca/groups/pwa/documents/report/oak025058.pdf).

    The city's crosswalk decision matrix recommends marked crosswalks be installed when there is a gap between existing crosswalks of 900 feet or more. The existing gap between the marked crosswalks at 54th and Market is over 1100 feet and the gap from Market to 61st is over 1600 feet.

    As such, I am requesting that three new crosswalks be striped across Adeline at 56th, Arlington, and 59th Streets. None of these streets are skewed or T intersections, so no parking spots will need to be removed or curb ramps will need to be added in order to stripe the crosswalks there. The crosswalks can either be at the north or south leg of these intersections (or both), based on sight lines or other design criteria.

  • 880 West Macarthur Boulevard Oakland, California - Longfellow
    BLIGHT! People are constantly throwing their trash into the lot, which is fenced in so there is no way for anyone but the owner to clean it. The owner is NOT taking care of his property which is covered in garbage and weeds. The weeds are now growing out of the lot, covering the sidewalk and trapping even more garbage. This empty lot is bringing down the entire intersection.
    Please make the owner responsible for maintaining his property.
  • Other Acknowledged

    Wire recycling cage ripped off the top of waste receptacle. Hopefully this can be repaired without losing the beautiful mosaic artwork on the outside of the waste receptacle.
