Vehicles are frequently double-parked and blocking the newly installed bicycle lane, rendering it unusable. The problem is the worst during morning and evening commute hours. Increased parking enforcement would be very helpful.
Building construction for the past few months looks horrible. I almost cut myself on the exposed wood 2 weeks ago while walking by it after I had tripped on what seems to be an elevator shaft to their basement.
Lowell St Between 56th And Aileen Oakland, CA - Downtown
Caught these two jerks dumping all sorts of trash in plain view in the middle of the day on this city street. CA license 5E70300. They saw me take the pic and laughed. Can someone fine them please?! This is a neighborhood people live in, not a trash heap!
There is a hole in the sidewalk that is a walking hazard to pedestrians. The city has placed a roofing material over the sidewalk in this area and it has several "soft" spots in it. This one is clearly a hazard as you can step into it. Especially in the evening under low light conditions.
Oakland, we need more police. The Wakefield Building is a cultural asset, many of its tenants are community oriented in some form. Someone has done thousands of dollars in damage tagging the top floor on the east and west side of the building. The taggers and graffiti artists have gone too far for too long. In the last two years we lost several murals that have been a part of our community for decades. This isn't home grown, the whole country knows our police department is understaffed -we've become a vandalism and illegal dumping destination. We need more police!
