660 Taylor Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda
Dear City Manager,
I am writing to you regarding the conditions at Webster and Taylor. Specifically, conditions within 200 feet west of this intersection.
All of the following have been reported via SeeClickFix.
1. There are dozens of tags on the historic building and property at 1431 Webster Street. Code Enforcement is non responsive.
2. The front yard of 645 Taylor has been paved over for parking. As a result, the adjacent sidewalk is broken. Code Enforcement found the property in violation, but the parking lot is still there and the sidewalk is still broken.
3. Ongoing and never ending dumping of trash near this intersection. The No Dumping sign has graffiti on it.
4. Broken sidewalks, including sidewalks repaved with asphalt.
5. Broken storm drains.
6. Roads and sidewalks that do not drain due to faulty grades.
7. Roadway long overdue for reconstruction.
8. The City operated parking lot at Webster and Taylor was closed several years ago and no replacement parking was created. The project approved for this location seems to be in abeyance.
This area suffered decades of disinvestment due to redlining based on race and class discrimination.
I urge you to visit this location and take action to remedy these and other problems. It is long overdue that the City address these type of problems and the longstanding injustices that helped to create and perpetuate them.

Does our city council need to update its city ordinances to include homeless encampments and people living in their cars? It will become worse if we don't identify how to address this issue. We happily pay property taxes to keep up this great city. It would be a shame to let blight take over our sense of safety and property value. Maybe we need to empower our police force with training to get the job done.
There have been reports on this forum for months but the same encampments have not moved. Please educate me as I may have missed something.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my view. I've lived on the island for forty years and would hate to see Alameda turn into THE place for people living in their cars or in encampments.
2101 Mariner Square Dr Alameda, CA 94501, USA - AlamedaThe problem here is getting worse. please remove the camps.
Constitution Way Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - AlamedaThere are three structures now. A tent under the overpass, another tent behind the Alameda sign and a new big hand made structure made out of scrap wood and black plastic tarp and garbage is piling up around It. It is starting to look like Oakland and it is only going to get worse.
Marina Village Pkwy:Mariner Square Dr (North Jctn) Alameda, CA 94501, USA - AlamedaThese encampments continue to grow daily. 😱
Drug use spotted. 💉☣ just a few yards from a Pre School. Is this Alameda's Home Depot?🤔 ⏰💣

I originally reported this issue here: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5512258 however it was fraudulently closed by Lieutenant Jeff Emmitt in order to sweep the issue under the rug, and then the site automatically archived it making it impossible for me to re-open or comment on the issue. Therefore I have to re-submit the same issue all over again (and will probably have to do this several more times since APD will probably just keep fake-closing it like they do all our other requests on this site):
constantly barking dog, german shepard left abandoned in back yard almost 24 hours a day every day. dog barks loudly at random times throughout day and night, including at odd hours of the night like 3 am. This morning has been barking sporadically since around 9 am (it is now 11:38 AM). This has happened so many times this past year that I've honestly lost count of how many nights of sleep ive lost because of this barking dog. Countless complaints made to the useless Alameda Animal Services but the animal control officer refuses to take action and wont accept video recordings of barking as proof. in other words, the dog has to be b arking at the exact moment that animal control officer arrives. if they stop for even 5 minutes, if the officer was there during that time they will write it off and not do anything about it. because of alameda's worthless and corrupt animal services protocol to refuse to accept video evidence of barking (which is normally accepted in virtually every other city in the us), the degenerate and irresponsible owner of this dog has been permitted to neglect their animal and cause a nuisance to the neighborhood by having it bark every day with total impunity for over a year straight.
As of Saturday, June 30th, 2019, the problem is still not resolved. APD and animal services have done absolutely nothing to abate the problem.
2241 Ca-260 Alameda, CA 94501, USA - AlamedaEncampment and garbage has returned to this location.
2363 Mariner Square Dr Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - AlamedaSeems like the encampment is growing in numbers. What is being done currently? Is there legislation that isnt being written to help keep alameda from turning into oakland? Maybe this is the line forming to get into the yet to be built navigation center in alameda.
China House Restaurant 2328 Santa Clara Ave, Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - AlamedaBoom cars - vehicles with high powered subwoofer systems, typically with lots of other assorted aftermarket modifications like 20+" wheels and illegal exhaust kits - are overrunning our peaceful island community here in Alameda. They regularly drive through various streets on the island (sometimes well in excess of the posted 25 MPH speed limit) blasting their vulgar loud rap music at the highest volume setting possible, vibrating nearby buildings and causing a major nuisance to residents across Alameda. This is in violation of both state law as well as local county ordinance. APD regularly allows these drivers to drive recklessly and cause major unnecessary noise pollution in our neighborhoods with total impunity right in front of them and refuse to ever stop and cite these drivers. Please start stopping and citing these reckless and loud vehicles. Me and thousands of other Alamedans are tired of the sanctity of our neighborhoods being violated by these loud and vulgar reckless vehicles coming into our peaceful community from Oakland.
2301 Webster Street Alameda 94501, United States - AlamedaOver the past couple weeks, there has been a tent set up with a bunch of other junk layed out next to it. This is at the intersection of webster and constitution way right outside the tube to get to Oakland.
Webster St & Constitution Way Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - AlamedaHomeless encampment with a ton of trash strewn about, the entire area reeks of crap.
500 Lincoln Avenue alameda, California - Alamedathe recently added Recycle for Change (phone# 510-932-3839) big green box on the sidewalk on the corner of 5th and Lincoln is an absolute eyesore. It is covered with graffiti and always has donations on the ground that end up in the street or kicked down the sidewalk. There is another box same charity right down the street that has been the for years. Is there some zoning that addresses the density and location of these boxes?
