  • Graffiti Acknowledged
    882-898 28th Street Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Hoover-Foster
    Corner of 28th & San Pablo ave. West Oakland. We have received complaints from neighbors to get this graffiti removed. HELP!
  • Homeless Encampment Acknowledged
    23rd Street & Martin Luther King Oakland, California - Northgate
    They are back, back, back, back, and back again. They just moved from Cal Tran side of the fence to Oakland City Sidewalk. Back are also the the filth, garbage, and drugs. This is a game they truly know how to play and Oakland is at a lost what to do about it. The question begs, "Would an Oakland Civic Leader tolerate a tent encampment on their block of residence?" Moreover, would they be as tolerant as us to have these encampments to move back and forth a few feet? Collectively are we not County of Alameda tax payers in good standings? Collectively do we have any rights? Aren't they violating any City Codes? Are they not blocking a City Street and impeding pedestrian's right of passage?
  • 23rd And Mlk Oakland California - Northgate
    There are many tents on the sidewalk at 23rd and MLK. Some of the occupants have been hostile to local residents.
  • 2601-2659 West St Oakland, CA 94612, USA - Hoover-Foster
    Trash all over the sidewalk
  • Grove Shafter Freeway Oakland, California - Pill Hill

    29th Street between MLK & Telegraph.

    This is the second time we caught this illegal dumper in the act. Reported them to Law Corps, provided photos of his license plates and of him trying to get away. Nothing happened!

    Caught him again, dumping in the exact same spot as he did before. So this time we stopped and asked if he has a business card, he gave it to us...will provide it to Law Corps again. Will anything happen?

  • 873 30th Street Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Hoover-Foster
    UPDATE 9/10/14: Last night a MATTRESS was dumped across the street from this disgusting mess of dumped garbage on BOTH SIDES of the street.
    NOTE TO OAKLAND DEPARTMENT OF ILLEGALLY DUMPED WASTE: If you only pick up the reported issues and don't look across the street and ALSO GRAB THE NEW GARBAGE dumped there because of all the other stuff (news flash: dumping attracts more dumping), then your Department will just have to come out again and again to the same sites.
    Please stop wasting gas and resources by allowing this ineffective practice to continue -- attend to both sides of the streets when you are picking up at please! We shouldn't have to put in separate Issues each time for both sides of the same City block. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    734 30th Street Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Hoover-Foster
    Massive pile of furniture and trash
  • 520 20th Street Oakland, California - Downtown
    The north sidewalk is closed adjacent to the new development going in next to the climbing gym. This is a very heavily used sidewalk due to adjacent land uses of climbing gym, SEIU, Uptown Place condos, and the county Social Services building. Please maintain access during construction by creating a walkway in the parking lane. The current set-up tells pedestrians to cross mid-block. This morning, I observed may pedestrians walk in the street to get around, rather than cross. This movement needs to be legitimized to address safety issues with the current configuration.
  • 625 23rd St Oakland, California - Northgate

    I live at 625 23rd st., which is enveloped by a homeless encampment. Aside from the tremendous rat/vector problem, and other grave public health threats that this entails, the situation for pedestrians is now incredibly dangerous. There is a high level of reckless driving on 23rd st. and i am not able to safely use the sidewalk walking in either direction on my street. This is due to tents on one side of ,y place and a trailer parked at 605 23rd st. on the other. I cannot use the sidewalk, wlaking in either direction, and I have nearly been hoit by a car on more than one occasion.

    This situation calls for immediate intervention.

  • 2001-2099 M.L.K. Jr Way Oakland, CA 94612, USA - San Pablo Gateway
    Trash left by homeless on sidewalk
  • 630 Thomas L Berkley Way Oakland California - San Pablo Gateway
    Contractors have abandoned about 10 no parking signs and barricades on 20th street between San Pablo and Telegraph. The majority of them are located in front of 630 20th st/ Thomas L Berkley Way near the intersection of San Pablo. Some say PG&E on them Saroni drive from 7/25/16 to 7/25/16 which means they reused old signs. The last time this happened PG&E left them on the street for over two months. Some signs say OB1600903 info 925-674-6477. Please call whomever is responsible for this work and have them remove their signs. Also, there is a dumped trash can filled with debris in front of PG&E substation L next door to 630 Thomas L Berkley. On the backside of Substation L there is an abandoned mattress. Please call PG&E and have them remove these items. Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.
  • 2510 West Street Oakland, California - Hoover-Foster
    I have been bicycling by Lone Star Auto Repair for 2+ years and every weekday afternoon they have vehicles blocking the bicycle lane, and more often than not, parked across the sidewalk. This takes place immediately in front of their business and is an ongoing problem.
