    2833 Tennessee Street Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    I live across the street from my daughter's school (Vallejo Charter). we cross Curtis, then Tennessee to go and come from school each day. The school's parking lot is located across the street from the school. I was hit by a VCS parent while in the crosswalk on Friday, March 20th 2015. Crossing guards are volunteer. Tennessee is a busy street and now Curtis is as well. That intersection is crazy dangerous. I've since sat and watched drivers not stopping or slowing at the stop sign. I've seen people back up and park in the crosswalk. We are always almost getting hit. Well, I DID! I missed my daughter's first performance in the Talent Show that night. She has autism and I was worried about her. The case number is15-3709. I'm waiting for the police report, but was told they towed her car. We need more cautionary supports at that intersection. The school is Kindergarten - 8th. The parking lot is ACROSS the MAJOR street! A big, busy street. a few school signs covered by trees in unacceptable. We should have some like the ones on Rollingwood in front of the library. Blinking lighted crosswalks, yellow bumps approaching school and even a scanner showing your speed and the limit are some of the safety tools we need. I got hit and rolled off the hood onto the street. God forbid someone roll over child! Please contact me with any information or where I can go to make this happen! Thank You!
  • 1246-1306 Florida Street Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    Railroad Track between Florida and Louisiana Street has litter, debris and homeless encampment. The area seems to be gaining in population the last week so the Railroad company needs to be notified of the mess especially behind the Filipino Center area.
  • 601-899 Lemon St Vallejo, CA 94590, USA - Vallejo
    Large trash dump in street
  • 146-198 Springs Rd Vallejo, CA 94590, USA - Vallejo
    Tent city at railroad tracks
  • 1309 Florida St Vallejo, CA 94590, USA - Vallejo
    Numerous tents next to railroad tracks
  • 869-899 Sereno Drive Vallejo, California - Vallejo

    Railroad crossing of Sereno Drive, as far as the eye can see in both directions is a continuous trash pile. Examination of the trash adjacent to and on the sidewalk shows a preponderance of liquor bottles of all sizes. At 11am, a man lying in a sleeping bag against the Kaiser fence was drinking, three men in the adjacent shopping center parking lot were drinking. A couple in bed of pickup next to the adjacent liquor store were drinking from a brown-bagged liquor bottle. I'm wondering what these people and the owners/landlords of this property have done to secure exemption from state laws about public drunkenness, and disorderly behavior.

    Having attracted a large, high quality, medical facility to our city, why do we insult it by failing to enforce law and decency right next to its front door? It's hard to believe that someone isn't trying to sabotage Vallejo's revival.

  • 807 Maine Street Vallejo California - Vallejo
    RV parked on Maine street. Pop-outs have been opened and generator has been running on and off. NOT ABANDONED. People are living there. (City should make the hook ups at the Solano Fair Grounds available to homeless in this cold weather.)
  • 1200 Florida St Vallejo, CA 94590, USA - Vallejo
    Homeless camp on railroad tracks. This is shameful that the city allows people to live like this.
  • 505 Santa Clara St Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    The old Post Office does not have a searchable address so I used the Library's Address to locate the position, but drug the pinpoint across the street to the location. There has been people camping out under the post office's side porch area. There is constantly trash left there even when there is no one there.

    When will the City of Vallejo figure out that there is no incentive to stop illegal dumping - without enforcement. The City must change their disposition of not pursuing or fining violators. At some point we have to be fed up with that attitude. The City will have to put forth some effort with the City Attorney. The theory that it costs less to just have it cleaned by the City Grounds Crew as apposed to the legal costs of finding and fining violators. This policy is not working for the residents of Vallejo, it shouldn't just be law of the jungle out there.

    Even when given photographic evidence with the vehicle, license plate and face of the offender in the process of dumping, nothing will happen, even though they ask you to report it. When I spoke with the city attorney he could not recall one case of illegal dumping coming through the system.

    Check this out regarding illegal dumping in the City's Municipal Code:
    7.44.160 - Rewards.
    Every person giving information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person for a violation of Sections 7.44.080, 7.44.090, 7.44.100, and 7.44.110 is entitled to a reward therefor. The amount of the reward for each such arrest and conviction shall be fifty percent of the amount of the fine paid by the person convicted under this chapter and received by the city. If the reward is payable to two or more persons, it shall be divided equally. The amount of collected fine to be paid under this section shall be paid prior to any distribution of the fine that may be prescribed by any other section with respect to the same fine. (Ord. 1595 N.C. (2d) § 2 (part), 2007.)

    Enforcement is the answer, without it there is no deterrence and therefore it will continue. Being offered free neighborhood garbage bags and saying “that we’re working with several departments to find a solution to this problem”, seems to be falling short. Take a look at any other city and how they handle the problem - which is to follow through with the fines and prosecute the people. I understand the logic of cleaning up these messes promptly, otherwise who would want to buy a home here? Just out of curiosity I’d love to know what the city spends on cleanup of illegal dumping, they tell us how many pounds they haul away daily. What else could we get done with that money?

    You will not see curtailment of dumping in this city until there is enforcement, at least for the most egregious violators. The city’s disposition to just clean up after dumping because it’s less expensive than the legal process of fining them $1000 has to change....
