Buena Vista Ave By Del Monte Building alameda, California - Alameda
Behind the Del Monte Building on Buena Vista AVe and next to Wind River is an inlet of water. There were 4 boats parked there for about a month. I reported this to you . Three of the boats have left but one sailboat remains and is docked up to the docks that are closed because they are falling down. In addition, the boat people use their small dingy boat to come on shore and leave heaps of garbage next to the street way that goes behind the Del Monte Building and garbage in our water
Encinal Basin Near Wind River Alameda, California - Alameda
Another boat has been docked in the Encinal Basin now for about a month. It is a larger white boat with what looks they took the top of a trailer and attached it to the boat . The boat also has a small dingy boat tied to the side of the large boat that they use to access land.
The empty lot and the area around it need a complete cleaning. There is trash, liquor bottles, surgical gloves and countless piles of dog poop. Some of it is on private property and some on public property. There is also graffiti on the property. The sidewalks are filthy. Is this the best that the City of Alameda can do? This hurts the neighborhood and local business.
This intersection is terrible. Even though the street is marked, people do not stop for pedestrians, they speed right through, and obviously over 25MPH. It's especially bad at night with poor lighting. The police monitor it during the farmers market, but it needs better daily patrol, or signage. I have been almost hit so many times I have lost count, and I am a healthy adult. If an elderly person or child is there it could be very bad. I have lived here for 2.5 years and I have had enough close calls that I am now afraid to cross the intersection if there are any visible cars, and I am not typically afraid of such things!
This morning there were over 9 boats dumped in the Encinal Basin. The majority of these boats were towed into the basin by a man n a small dingy boat. In the last couple of years, this continues to be a problem causing garbage in the basin and people from the boats climb the ladder to chairs that they have chained to the fencing at the end of the basin , along with tables, and have gatherings there. So far two such boats have sunk in this basin causing the city to retrieve the boats at great cost but also as important leaving a large spill of oil and other damaging substances from when the boats sink. I don't understand why this continues to be allowed to this point. PLEASE use our harbor patrol boats and officers to take care of this matter before another boat sinks!

Someone stopped by and placed masking tape over the port, and painted it green. I am guessing that this solution will last about six months, until the summer sun completely erodes it. Why are we using extremely low budget maintenance protocols to fix thousand dollar lamp post that are rusting from the inside out and have wires that are exposed to children that might reach into the holes?
