  • 5457-5481 Claremont Avenue Oakland, California - Fairview Park
    This encampment doubles in size each week. This morning there was a belligerent homeless person "batting" garbage with a stick at people and traffic. It's dangerous. If we do not address this it will grow into a whole homeless village like so many other places throughout Oakland. This is next to a park where children play!
  • Chabot Road Oakland, CA - Rockridge
    Chabot Road is used as a thoroughfare and there are many potholes along it between College Ave and the Chabot Rec Center. It is in severe need of repair and/or complete repaving.
  • 5422 Shafter Oakland, California - Shafter
    There is a tree that is blocking the street light causing a very dark stretch of sidewalk. Last week there was a armed robbery in this stretch so the neighbors are eager t o get the tree trimmed. It's only a few branches that would need to be cut back.
    Thanks!
  • Pothole Archived
    30 Roanoke Road Berkeley, California - Berkeley

    A significant sinkhole has recently developed on Roanoke Road. This is more than a mere pothole, of which there are many already on Roanoke Road - it is a significant hazard and safety issue. As one neighbor describes it:

    "I've seen a few bikers almost fall of their bikes due to the combination of the steep hill and this very steep crater. Also, cars suddenly swerve onto the other side of the street to avoid it - but it's a somewhat curvy, hilly street and I've seen them almost swerve into oncoming traffic."

  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    475-499 Hudson Street Oakland, California - Shafter
    Someone has put up a structure and is living under the freeway across from FROG Park where children are always playing. I've seen needles, bags and open signs of drug use. He has filled almost the entire block on Claremont under the freeway adjacent to him with carts full of belongings/garbage.
  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    Claremont Avenue And Hudson Oakland, California - Shafter
    For over half a year now a garbage pile continues to grow and expand on Claremont Avenue under the Highway 24 overpass near Hudson Street. I understand that this started out as a shopping cart of homeless possessions, but now it is truly just one big garbage dump that spans over half a city block. This is directly across from Frog Park where neighborhood kids like to play. I don't understand why the city allows this to grow and refuses to do anything about it (I know of multiple neighbors that continue to call about this on a regular basis with no response). More recently, the garbage pile includes multiple full Waste Management garbage bins that were taken from Rockridge residents. As a neighborhood resident that pays a monthly fee for garbage pick up, this doesn't make sense. Maybe we should all stop paying Waste Management and just haul our garbage over to Claremont Avenue and add it to the pile....it would save us a lot of money and it appears that the city is okay with this. Why can't we do better Oakland? Please respond and clean up this health hazard.
  • 5341 B. Miles Ave Oakland, CA 94618, USA - Shafter
    The homeless encampments are starting to grow bigger along the creek in FROG Park. It's starting to become a health issue with bottles of urine and feces.

    Broken sidewalk Taft at college
  • 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.

  • 6125 Broadway Oakland, California - Upper Rockridge
    The stretch of Broadway between Keith and the the Highway 24 onramp is badly in need of repaving. This stretch gets a lot of traffic and has gone for a very long time without paving. It really needs to be done.
    Thanks!
  • Hudson And Claremont Oakland, California - Rockridge
    There is an ongoing problem regarding homelessness in Frog Park and across the street on both Hudson and Claremont. This issue is of great concern to our community as there are adults performing in lewd and inappropriate behavior, leaving trash and debris on the sidewalks and in the park as well as drug paraphernalia and a very unsafe element in and around children's play areas. I have actually witnessed people shooting up on the sidewalk and in the park on the bench near the basketball hoops. This needs to be cleaned up and made safe for children to play.
  • Locksley Ave Oakland, CA - Shafter
    There is a large pile of human feces and a large amount of toilet paper in the gutter on Locksley, near the empty lot on the corner or Locksley and Forest where homeless people have been sleeping. There is also human feces streaking the pillars in that empty lot.
