  • Doolittle Dr Alameda, CA, 94502, USA - Alameda
    There is the beginning of a homeless encampment on Doolittle Drive on the Mt Trashmore side of the street, directly across from the pond on the golf course. There is a tent with tarps strung up on the trees and various piles of odds and ends. Since when is camping allowed on Alameda’s roadways?
  • 3349-3381 Bridgeview Isle Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    Attached is just one picture representing many areas of the deteriorating sea wall along Ravens Cove Townhomes. There are many places on both sides of the wall where the steel rebar is visible and is rusting because the cement wall has not been maintained or waterproofed.
    This was reported over a year ago to a city worker who was painting over the graffiti and no action has been taken.
  • Encinal Basin Alameda, California - Alameda
    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!
  • Constitution Way And Marina Village Parkway Alameda, California - Alameda
    My husband was hit while crossing Constitution at Marina Village Parkway this morning after dropping our two year old off at preschool. The driver immediately left the scene. My husband and daughter are nearly hit almost daily at this intersection as people turn right on the red to go into the tube. I urge the city to change this light to a "No Turn on Red" intersection, post "School Zone" signage to remind drivers to be cautious and look for young children, and to increase the traffic police presence during morning commute times.
  • 1415 Pearl St Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda

    Neighborhood recycling thief has been trespassing on various properties to loot the recycling bins (and make a massive mess and a lot of noise in the process) for about a year now (possibly longer!) Have been reporting them weekly since April of 2018 but APD ignored it every time. I got so fed up with it that I decided to follow and record this person on video as they proceeded to trespass and steal from all the properties in my neighborhood, and eventually managed to flag down a couple APD officers who were driving through the area and got them to stop the thief. The thief is an elderly asian woman, possibly vietnamese, who typically wears a grey cap, blue jeans and grey sneakers. The thief usually uses a large three-wheeled cart to transport the stolen recyclables to whoever is paying them for them.

    Officers apparently asked them to knock it off and I thought the issue was finally resolved, only to see this same person come back again the next weekend and continue trespassing and stealing from everyone's properties in the neighborhood.

    There's also a handful of other thieves, possibly associates of this individual, who also like to go around trespassing on people's properties and digging through their bins. They usually hit various apartment complexes on central before proceeding northbound on Pearl street to hit more properties up that way. I am not sure what their full route is, but I know that they typically come around this area on Sundays and Mondays (although I've also occasionally seem them on a few other days), and usually either mid-morning or in the afternoon.

    it is very frustrating that even after an entire year of thoroughly documenting the problem, diligently reporting it to APD every time it happens, the problem continues to persist totally unabated. APD needs to put an end to the weekly recycling theft and trespassing that they've allowed to continue with impunity for an entire year (and possibly longer).

    Homeless Encampment Growing Needs to be addressed
  • Intersection Of Packet Landing Road And Centre Court Alameda, California - Alameda

    Safety issues caused by red zone violations on either side of Centre Court intersection with Packet Landing Road, creating zero visibility when exiting or entering Centre Court. Occurs twice weekdays, at beginning and end of school at nextdoor Earhart Elementary school, with mostly the same few parents using Centre Court red zones as parking spaces for average 20-30 minutes per vehicle.

    I personally stopped by police station to report on 11/8 (incident 1C 117), and newly assigned officer told me it was the first he'd heard of problem (although familiar with similar issues at BayFarm school), and emergency work permitting, that he'd try to come out in a week or 2, to ticket offenders; asking around and asking police, has not happened to date.

    To demonstrate more than single incident of 11/8, I also called in violations to non-emergency police number on 11/14, 11/15, 11/16; police were unable to respond in the average 20-30 minutes vehicles remained in red zone. (I was told because drivers remained in vehicles, police needed to be dispatched, instead of parking enforcement.) I submitted photos of license plates of offenders to Harbor Bay Security, for their tracking & forwarding to police; these were mostly repeat offenders.

    My request is to eliminate the safety issues of zero visibility caused by red zone violations, whether via ticketing offenders, blocking red zone with pylons that seems to be effective down the street in school red zones, or whatever it takes to fix.

  • 1301 3rd St Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda

  • 747 Eagle Ave Alameda, CA - Alameda
    Every 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.
  • 401–445 Mosley Ave Alameda 94501, United States - Alameda
  • Sherman Street At Wind River Del Monte Building Alameda, California - Alameda
    There were a number of homeless encampments growing at the rear of the Wind River parking lot and inside the fenced off open field area between Wind River and Del Monte building. Police worked with these folks and eventually had them leave this week and cleaned up all garbage left. Some have returned but now have cut a large hole in the fence and are camping inside the fenced area. They also cut the gate lock to the fenced area.
