the homeless encampment under the freeway has grown 3x it's size in the last month. the tents/pallets/bikes/trash are overflowing into the street. sidewalks are blocked for both pedistrians and are not accessible for the disabled. open air drug dealing and prostitution. mattresses. despite porta-potties, human feces and urine fill the area. horrendous smell. needles strewn. starting to block traffic.
The entire Street - Chapman St - there are massive potholes .
Nothing has been done to repair these holes since moving into this neighborhood 15 years ago. I was just charged over $500.00 to repair - will the City pass this invoice?
the alignment in my car due to damage caused by the potholes.
The neighborhood would appreciate some attention to these problems as we all feel totally neglected by the City ...like we don't exist and of no importance.Pls HELP!!! Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Please advise when this problem can be fixed - must have at least 25 pot holes - massive ones !
Several older African American homeless men living in tarps/ tents and home made cardboard homes with a gas stove, human waste and broken glass, and what appears to be SEVERAL stolen tools & various bikes from nearby homes and oakland residents!
There is a tree that is blocking the street light causing a very dark stretch of sidewalk. Last week there was a armed robbery in this stretch so the neighbors are eager t o get the tree trimmed. It's only a few branches that would need to be cut back.
Most of the wall at the South East corner at the intersection between 5th street and Oak Street is plastered with random writing. It is highly visible from the freeway and is the major way Oakland Citizens access the 880 freeway. This makes the entire city look bad.
Driver Plaza needs help from every city agency. It is frequently the site of all-day drinking fests, the trees are dying from the daily, constant urination by the drunks who party there, and the tree planters are giant garbage cans where the drunks throw their cigarette butts, liquor bottles, needles, cans, and other nasty garbage. The bus stop glass is frequently shattered by drunk, angry people. Families try to walk their dogs and children through the gross mess and cyclists try to navigate this bike corridor without getting flats from all the broken glass.
