South Berkeley/Emeryville

Notified About

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 56th And Adeline Oakland, California - Santa Fe

    Adeline Street in Oakland from the Emeryville border north to 61st Street is being repaved and re-striped with a road diet and buffered bicycle lanes (great!), but no new marked crosswalks are being added along this entire stretch as part of the project, even though they are warranted by the city's own design policies (See http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca/groups/pwa/documents/report/oak025058.pdf).

    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 54th and Market is over 1100 feet and the gap from Market to 61st is over 1600 feet.

    As such, I am requesting that three new crosswalks be striped across Adeline at 56th, Arlington, and 59th Streets. None of these streets are skewed or T intersections, so no parking spots will need to be removed or curb ramps will need to be added in order to stripe the crosswalks there. The crosswalks can either be at the north or south leg of these intersections (or both), based on sight lines or other design criteria.

  • 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.
  • Other: Sewers Archived
    5606 San Pablo Avenue Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Gaskill
    Plugged sewer main means no toilets for the librarians and surrounding businesses! This needs to be fixed right away!
  • 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.
  • 42nd Street Underpass Between Telegraph And Martin Luther King Oakland, CA - Temescal
    Tents, trash and dumping
  • 5201 West St NW corner of 52nd Street and West Streets, Oakland, CA - Santa Fe
    Street Light has been out at the NW corner of 52nd Street & West Street, in front of 802 52nd St. Helen McGregor Park at the NE corner of the same intersection has been the location of much crime. Also within 100 feet on both West and also on 52nd Streets are known to OPD drug houses. Please make this street light a priority, for the sake of reducing crime. This intersection is also close to Children's Hospital, and patrons and employees of the Hospital park near this intersection. Please correct this safety issue.
