    2300-2398 Valley Street Oakland, California - Northgate
    Please evaluate the section of Valley Street between 23rd and 24th Streets for increased wattage on the existing street lights. Thank you.
  • 522 20th Street (Thomss L Berkley Way) Oakland, California - San Pablo Gateway
    The multi-family building under construction next to the climbing gym is occupying the sidewalk and had cordon-ed off a temporary crossing that was working well. Last week, the temporary crossing became a storage area for rebar and pedestrians are being directed to cross mid-block. This is a very un-safe situation. There is too much of a desire line to stay on the north side of the street, and I keep seeing people walking in the street instead of crossing. The street also has a lot of AC Transit buses running on it that don't mix well with pedestrians walking in the street. The buildings on the north side of the street include the County Social Services building, Uptown Place condos, SEIU, and climbing gym. Please require them to keep this crossing open. I am attaching a picture of a man in a walker crossing in the street here. Every day, I see something like this. Thanks in advance for your attention to this.

    The dog at this address is constantly tied up on the porch, which is now against the law in California, and barks constantly: http://www.animallaw.info/statutes/stuscaca_hlth_s_122335.htm
  • 570-598 34th Street Oakland, California - Pill Hill
    There is a park at the end of my street, to the right of the 24 freeway that is getting worse with graffiti and illegal dumping as well as people sleeping in tents and there is even an area people are using to cook with propane — a fire hazard on top of it all. I have called the police and DPW many times for not just drug use and prostitution on my street -- 33rd street where it curves to 34th -- but now the park where we usually take our dogs is now skid row. On top of our cars getting broken into 5 times, please help clean up the park as well as the illegal dumping on 33rd st. It would be great to be considered for street sweeping as well. Broken glass, garbage and used condoms stay on our street forever, and I am getting fed up, as are my neighbors. Please put us on your cleanup radar! I see the park is not actually named on the city map, but it is across the freeway from Grove Shafter Park
  • 552 30th Street Oakland, California - Pill Hill
    30th St has a terrible speeding problem. Drivers frequency zip down 30th St. between Telegraph and MLK at over 60 miles per hour. I have personally witnessed three crashes where a speeding driver has ran into parked cars or even the freeway underpass. It is dangerous to cross the street and for bikers. Please install speed bumps.This photograph was taken 08/05/2014 after a driver crashed into three cars.
  • 37th And Telegraph Ave Oakland, CA 94607 - Mosswood
    Excess trash that has been in front of First AME Church 2 weeks. This is unacceptable and a disrespect to the church.
  • 3830 Telegraph Oakland, California - Mosswood
    As the photograph indicates.

  • 3770 Telegraph Oakland, California - Mosswood
    On pillar on the 38th Street side of the property.
  • 534-540 31st Street Oakland, California - Pill Hill
    Homeless have set up makeshift tents on the Caltrans property at the end of 31st Street again for the third time this year. Caltrans has not fixed the fence or picked up the trash from the last two times, which is easily seen in the attached photo.
  • Telegraph Ave & 37th Street Oakland, CA - Mosswood
    2nd Request - trash has accumulate in trash can which is full and on the sidewalk in front of First AME Church for the pass two weeks. How long do we have to wait for the city to show respect to the church. If the city does not respect the church how do we expect the community to respect the church. Please have this trash removed immediately. What is the collection schedule for this trash receptacle?
  • 520 20th Street Oakland, California - Downtown
    The north sidewalk is closed adjacent to the new development going in next to the climbing gym. This is a very heavily used sidewalk due to adjacent land uses of climbing gym, SEIU, Uptown Place condos, and the county Social Services building. Please maintain access during construction by creating a walkway in the parking lane. The current set-up tells pedestrians to cross mid-block. This morning, I observed may pedestrians walk in the street to get around, rather than cross. This movement needs to be legitimized to address safety issues with the current configuration.
