West Oakland

Notified About

  • 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.
  • 1111 Pine Street Oakland, California - Prescott Oakland Point

    Ford Sportcruiser, license number 2YHD336; occupants living in RV, and dumping their assortment of waste, on street, sidewalks and landscaped areas.

    I apologize for the graphic.

  • 600 5th Street Oakland California - Old City-Produce And Waterfront
    This is a modern day Hooverville. This should not be happening on the fringes of one of the richest cities in America. It is an outrage. If the structures of our culture have failed so many people that there's a shanty town on the sidewalk then the city needs to acknowledge the problem and create a space for them to camp that includes services like trash removal and toilets rather than just allowing these sidewalk camps to spread. It's reached the point where pedestrian access is completely blocked and piles of garbage are blocking a whole lane of traffic. These people aren't just the few that fall through the cracks they are an entire community. They are people who have been evicted and lost work and have nowhere to go. This is not normal! I understand that this situation is complicated and hard for the city to deal with but it should not just be ignored. We have been so patient with this but it keeps getting worse and as months pass it's having a very negative effect on our community. We don't want the cops to come in and break it up, it just forms again a day later on the other side of the street. We want these people to be given a place to be, some dignity and basic services.
  • 600 Broadway Oakland, California - Chinatown
    The underpass on Broadway between sixth and fifth street is is really filthy and smelly with garbage, trash, etc. Needs high pressure cleaning every couple of weeks. People use this to walk to BART. This is an ongoing problem that needs attention. The "artwork" (everyone thinks it is freeway fencing, but my understanding is that Oakland actually paid for this) also needs to be removed so that it is easier to keep clean, since garbage accumulates between there and the fence, itinerants use the semi-closed in portion for camping while passing through, and it looks really ugly.
  • 880 West Macarthur Boulevard Oakland, California - Longfellow
    BLIGHT! People are constantly throwing their trash into the lot, which is fenced in so there is no way for anyone but the owner to clean it. The owner is NOT taking care of his property which is covered in garbage and weeds. The weeds are now growing out of the lot, covering the sidewalk and trapping even more garbage. This empty lot is bringing down the entire intersection.
    Please make the owner responsible for maintaining his property.
  • 2219-2399 Wood Street Oakland, California - Clawson
    Several neighbors have fallen on their bikes on this street, as it still contains embedded tracks parallel to the direction of traffic, and questionably in the middle of the road. There are zero traffic markings, so it becomes double dangerous, as cyclists (or motorists!) must guess the intention of oncoming traffic, as to where they believe the left- and right-hand lanes should be. This road needs decades-since-active rails removed, a resurfacing, and better traffic markings. As this neighborhood grows, Wood Street has great potential to be bike boulevard, connecting Oakland residences to Emeryville (and Oakland) businesses.
  • Pothole Archived
    1025 West Macarthur Boulevard Emeryville California - Longfellow
    The potholes were filled in by CalTrans but they came right back. I just drove through there yesterday and slowed down to 20 MPH to avoid another accident. There is a serious recurring problem that is spread out all under the overpass in both directions. There are about 8 potholes of different sizes. This needs a permanent solution or at least post a sign that says ''rough road'' and a 20 MPH recommended speed.
  • Beach Street Oakland, CA - Prescott Oakland Point
    This is a large pile of trash including several cow heads and other animal parts, not only is this ugly trash it's a health hazzard. please make this a top priority for clean up. and have street cleaners scrub the road when the trash is removed.
  • 1427 34th Street Oakland, California - Clawson
    The two structures at 1427 34th St., Oakland CA 94608, have been abandoned for many years and are in such seriously deteriorated condition that they look like they could collapse at any moment. Clearly whomever owns these has no intention to put them into serviceable condition, so I am asking the city to condemn them and tear them down post haste.
  • 1111 Pine Street Oakland, CA - Prescott Oakland Point

    A UHaul was abandoned across from 1111 Pine Street two weeks ago.

    The truck displays no license plate or registration, the engine block has been removed...but the back of the truck has a new padlock on it. Neighbors confirmed that it doesn't belong to the nearby salvage yard—so it needs to be towed.

  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    Martin Luther King Junior Way & Highway 24 & Grove Shafter Freeway Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Longfellow
    Heap of trash.
  • 428 3rd St Oakland CA 94607, Oakland, CA - Old City-Produce And Waterfront
    Now that there has been a gunshot death inside Club Anton (instead of just extreme noise, unruly patrons, altercations, and a prior shooting involving Club Anton customers outside the club), PLEASE RESPOND TO THE YEARS OF COMPLAINTS (to the owner, the police, Nancy Nadal, Lynnette McElhaney, and other City agencies and officials). REVOKE CLUB ANTON'S LIQUOR LICENSE AND SHUT IT DOWN!
