    645 40th Street Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Longfellow
    The homeless encampment here (fenced empty lot at 40th and MLK adjacent to the freeway) has grown a lot in the last two weeks. Camper/residents have broken and replaced the gate lock at 40th and torn open at least one other access point through chain link fencing on Caltrans property adjacent to this lot. Eight or so tents are in there now, and as of today there's also a truck moved in. They actually seem like pretty good neighbors so far ( I think there's less trash on the street now than before the first of them moved in) but the population increase is worrying, and I don't know if anybody's paying attention or assessing what services are needed.

    As the photo shows.
  • 57th Street And Telegraph Avenue Oakland, California - Fairview Park

    57th Street is a popular foot transit corridor connecting Idora Park and Bushrod neighborhoods to Claremont Ave. and Rockridge. Particularly during commuting hours, many residents from West of Telegraph cross at 57th Street in order to access AC transit and casual carpool on Claremont Ave., Rockridge BART, and the Rockridge shopping district. While there are currently crosswalks on Aileen Street and 58th Street, on a daily basis I witness adults, seniors, children, and bicyclists dodge four lanes of traffic across Telegraph at 57th. This is often extremely dangerous -- I've personally witnessed many near-accidents. A crosswalk is needed at this busy intersection.

    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 Aileen at Telegraph and 58th at Telegraph is over 1,000 feet.

    As such, I am requesting that a new crosswalk be striped across Telegraph at 57th Street.

  • 838 53rd Street Oakland, California - Santa Fe
    I've seen a lot of traffic around this house. I've been living in the neighboorhood for a year and the traffic of characters has escalated and are now more blatant than ever. Please fix this issue Oakland PD.
  • 5316 Shattuck Ave Oakland, California - Shafter
    Currently, there are no striped crosswalks on Shattuck between 51st & 55th streets. There is a large amount of pedestrian traffic crossing at 53rd & 54th streets but automobiles almost never stop for pedestrians. A pedestrian was recently hit by a car here and there have been many close calls. The city needs to add at least one additional striped crosswalk and pedestrian signage. The ideal location would be at the intersection of Shattuck & the 500 block of 54th Street as this seems to be the major crossing point for seniors going from the apartment complex on telegraph (driveways open to 53rd & 54th towards Shattuck) to the church on 54th daily.
