747 Eagle Ave Alameda, CA - AlamedaEvery night between midnight and sunrise there are people having sex in the parking lot at Eagle Village, they leave dirty condoms all over the parking lot. There’s never patrol cars in the area at night. They leave empty drug baggies, liquor bottles, piles of tobacco from blunt wraps and they are not residents. There’s often a blonde Caucasian woman out there in the parking lot often during these hours and goes back and forth from one car to another. Three cars out there in a row, with people inside, no parking permits, all idling. She is not a resident and it appears she’s turning tricks. Maybe schedule your housing officer to be on the beat when he’s actually needed. The police dept knows there’s an on going problem in the area, when people were dumping stolen cars they would sit in the parking lot in the daytime. This is happening on the constitution side. I also don’t want to hear call us when it happens because this is a nightly occurrence and I’m not risking my life to assist APD to do their job. There’s been a homocide and multiple robberies within a block within this year. You know the area is a problem and often with people coming in from tube.
Fernside Boulevard Alameda, CA - Alameda

Dear City Manager and the Public Works Department for the City of Alameda:
I am writing to express my concern regarding the excessive speed I have observed drivers using on Fernside Boulevard. I have lived on Fernside Boulevard near Thompson Street for 2.5 years. During that time, I have witnessed drivers on a daily basis driving at speeds well in excess of the 25 mile per hour speed limit. I also regularly (i.e., at least once per week) see drivers, frustrated with the car in front of them obeying the speed limit, swerve into the bike lane or cross over the double yellow median line in order to pass the vehicle ahead. Most concerning about this behavior is that I observe it most often during the morning commute, when numerous children are heading to school, walking across Fernside, or using the bike lanes.
While I do not know this, I hope that the drivers I have seen participating in the above actions do not live in Alameda, but rather, are using Fernside to get to the Harbor Bay Business Park, the Oakland Airport or the San Francisco Bay Ferry. Such would also help explain the reason for such haste in driving.
I would like the City to consider taking action to address this problem, and thereby reduce the risk of injury to the public and our children caused by the dangerous speeds and poor driving habits used by drivers on Fernside. Perhaps the installation of additional stop signs would be beneficial. Such is a low cost and relatively simple way to address the issue. There are currently no stop signs between High Street and East Side/Garfield Drive, which allows drivers to reach high rates of speed on this stretch of road. Another option would be to install speed humps all along the street. Finally, perhaps some sort of curb separating the bike lane from the roadway, or a center/median island (similar to the islands on Thompson Street) would be effective. I have personally spoken with non-Alamedians who have said that the large width of Fernside gives drivers the impression that the speed limit is higher than 25. Making the roadway narrower, either by installing a curb along the bike lane or a center median, may encourage drivers to slow down.
Another benefit of installing some sort of speed reducing system is that such may deter drivers from outside of Alameda from using Fernside as a thoroughfare to the business park, airport or ferry, and encourage those drivers to use DooLittle or Ron Cowan Parkway, both of which have higher speed limits and less pedestrian traffic.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing back from you.

1412 Pacific Alameda, California - AlamedaTenants of this property dumped several mattresses and headboards as well as an office chair and propped them up against a utility pole. These have been there for several days now. Couldn't they have ordered a garbage pick up or dumpster instead of leaving these on the sidewalk and curb?
1107 Broadway Alameda, California - AlamedaThis property is a total disaster. People drive up in their cars and dump stuff on the property, which owner collects, then holds garage sales, fixes cars and dumps the oil in the drain. How much longer is the city allowing this to happen to this property? If a car is parked more than 72 hrs they get a ticket however, this property collects JUNK, FIXES CARS, TAKE A WALK BY THE PROPERTY. Maybe the property owner is friends with someone in the city and therefore he does not get fined. I have called code enforcement and the police and nothing happens. Why is person not fined or summons? I thought if you do business in your home and in city of Alameda you needed a license or a permit which he does not have. What is the next step?

Crossing guard at crosswalk at Taylor/Eighth entered the walk with sign raised and stopped traffic to allow a mounted cyclist traveling west on Taylor, on the roadway, to cross Eighth, and proceed on Taylor.
A mounted cyclist is not a pedestrian.
A mounted cyclist on the roadway is a 'vehicle' under California Vehicle Code.
It seems some remedial training for crossing guards is in order.

7-Eleven 2301 Lincoln Ave, Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - AlamedaThere needs to be MORE police patrol in or around the 7-Eleven store on Lincoln and Oak, particularly late night. Homeless people come and steal things and the employee allows it. It's not fair that other people pay for their items and some are allowed to steal. No excuse for no police patrol - the APD is RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET.
2025 Santa Clara Avenue Alameda, California - AlamedaBetween the Haight Elementary school back gate entrance and down to 2050 Lincoln (DaVinci School), there are several illegal trash littering the sidewalk. There has been a white mattress close to Haight school for almost 3 weeks! And now there is a pile of food trash, as well as another rolled up mattress & foam. This is a walking route for elementary school children. It this is unsafe & unsanitary. Please remove these items asap. I already picked up some of the fast food trash, but there's even more. :( Thank you!
