  • 3860 Hanly Rd Oakland, California - Oakmore
    Both slides at Dimond Park have been boarded up and unusable for 6+. They need to be replaced or fixed so that kids can slide at the park! One slide is in the playground by the rec center, and the other is at the bottom of the park where Dimond St enters it.
  • 4028 Broadway Oakland, California - Piedmont Avenue
    Immediately below apartment bldg at this address.
  • Mandana At Erie Oakland, California - Lakeshore
    On Mandana boulevard, between Grand Avenue & Lakeshore Avenue, there is not a single cross walk....this is about a 6 (long) block stretch. It is unrealistic to think that people won't cross Mandana, and traffic continues to worsen. This is to request a quick study on what it would take to add painted pedestrian cross walks at Erie and at Walker.
  • 5435 Macarthur Boulevard Oakland, California - Maxwell Park
    The bend in the road where MacArthur meets Millsview needs a stop sign in both directions or speed bumps to slow drivers down. Drivers speed up and down MacArthur after the lights turn green at 55th and at the Mills entrance. I've only lived in this neighborhood two years and have twice seen that speeding cars coming down MacArthur have lost control coming around the bend and have crossed on-coming traffic and plowed thru the chain link fence into the Mills campus! Every time I drive up MacArthur around that bend, cars coming down the street cross the double yellow line because they are speeding and can not control their vehicles. Cars have come into my lane as much as 3 feet speeding towards me! There's also a cross walk across MacArthur at that intersection; the perfect place for a stop sign so pedestrians don't have to try to cross the street while drivers speed by at 40 MPH or faster. Something needs to be done to slow cars in both directions immediately!
  • 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.

  • 250-258 41st Street Oakland, California - Piedmont Avenue

    The T-intersection at 41st and Gilbert is very dangerous. There is only one crosswalk across 41st on the east side of the intersection (with no stop sign), cars tend to drive very fast going up and down the hill. There is a preschool at the corner, and parents and kids often cross 41st on the side without the crosswalk because of the limited parking for drop off and pick up on Gilbert, so parents often park in the angled parking spots on 41st. There is minimal signage regarding the school zone on the west side of the intersection, so cars are unaware to slow down. Additionally, the visibility going east on 41st is limited because of the hill, so cars often cannot see pedestrians in the street until they are very close. It is an accident waiting to happen.

    I would like to request improved traffic control measures to address these dangerous conditions, such as upgraded crosswalk striping, pedestrian crossing warning signage, pavement extensions, stop signs on the east and west sides of the intersection along 41st, and/or another crosswalk on the west side of the intersection.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 3950 Manila Oakland, California - Temescal
    As the photo shows, though it's not obvious exactly what it is. There's also tagging. Address approximate.
  • tree debris Archived
    3338 Bona Street Oakland, CA - Bartlett
    A huge eucalyptus fell on tree in December 2012. The branches removed from roof January 2013. Branches are still on the front lawn, 3 months later. It's a fire hazard as well as a blight issue. (Also, tree trunk is still in backyard and in the creek behind it. It's a city tree)
  • 3947 Opal Oakland, California - Temescal
    It's been on the sidewalk here for weeks, if not months.

    Wire recycling cage ripped off the top of waste receptacle. Hopefully this can be repaired without losing the beautiful mosaic artwork on the outside of the waste receptacle.
