  • 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.
  • 3901 Broadway Oakland, California - Mosswood
    This alcove is a perpetual problem spot, and needs to be gated.
  • 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.
  • 1086 Alcatraz Ave Oakland, CA - Paradise Park
    The crosswalk at Alcatraz and Herzog is VERY unsafe. There are two elementary schools and a new Oakland Recreation Youth Center in the area. In addition, there is a large apartment building nearby with a large senior population. Cars are coming from four directions. There have been several recent near misses where children and adults were nearly hit. Many cars also drive at unsafe speeds. School crossing guards have expressed concern for their own safety. Something urgently needs to be done now. In my opinion, there at least needs to be flashing "Slow Children" street signs from multiple directions and a raised crosswalk with flashing lights when pedestrians are crossing. Thank you for your attention to this serious safety issue.
  • 6101-6151 Overdale Avenue Oakland, California - Millsmont
    Hi! There have been 4 fatal or near fatal accidents in the last month at or very near the Overdale / Seminary intersection in Oakland. People drive extremely fast on Seminary and exit at extremely fast speeds from the 580E / 13 exit. Please place a 4 way stop or stoplight at this intersection immediately.
  • 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.

  • Gazebo disaster! Acknowledged
    1300-1354 34th Street Oakland, California - Clawson
    The gazebo is a site of illegal prostitution and drug use with the dumping of needles, alcohol bottles and condoms. The garbage is also attracting rodents and feral cats. The state of this gazebo poses a clear health and safety risk to the community.
  • 3974 Manila Oakland, California - Temescal
    With expired Georgia plates, BYQ 9174. It is not only parked on the sidewalk, but there appears to be someone living in it and that person has been emptying his tanks in the street. Thus it is also a public health hazard.
  • 4012 Broadway Oakland, California - Piedmont Avenue
    On south-facing wall of Mama's Royal Café.
