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?

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.

1501 Buena Vista Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda
An ongoing issue at Delmonte Werehouse located at 1501 Buena Vista Ave. Tractor and trailers operated by Oakland Transportation INC, CA# 0453410, are parked daily along Entrance Road. The commercial vehicles arrive at odd ours of the night. The vehicles often arrive betwen 10 pm and 12 AM, they resume operation between 4 am and 7 am.
Alameda Police has been called on numerous occasions and have noted the vehicles are illegally parked, but on private property. No action is taken, the problem continues.
Accoridng to Tim Lewis Home( current owners of the the Delmonts Werehouse) they are aware of the issue , but say Alameda will not allow them to erect fencing along Entrance road. In addition no parking signage is held up with the permit office.
This has been going on for over two years and this is not the first posting regarding this issue. Entrance road is zoned as a “Residential Neighborhood”. The noise associated with this issue is disruptive, and their vehicles unslightly in a residential area.
Webster St & Stargell Ave Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - AlamedaI saw 2 pitbulls at the encampment under the Constitution overpass (directly across from Stargell/Webster). When will APD act on our complaints? Wait until somebody gets attacked by these pitbulls?

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.

1523 Clement Ave Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - AlamedaThe holes in the fence at Encinal Terminal still have not been repaired. There is an increased amount of graffiti on the abandoned buildings as well as broken windows. There are teenagers and young adults (both male and female) who trespass on the property daily. They walk through one of the many holes in the fence. There is definitely something happening in those abandoned buildings. Alameda police have been made aware of this constant issue. However, there still seems to be no resolve with either repairing the holes, or boarding/ locking up the buildings. Even when the police show up and confront the trespassers, they just let them go. No wonder why the trespassers keep coming back even though there are multiple signs on the fence that state “No trespassing, violators will be prosecuted”
