  • 94502 Alameda, CA, USA - Alameda
    The pedestrian and bike path that extends under and past the Bay Farm Island bridge and along Mt. Trashmore on the San Leandro bay side, has become so overgrown that it is not safe for pedestrians. I have almost been hit a number of times by bikes traveling in my same direction.
    Could you PLEASE mow down the overgrowth so that the entire trail is usable?
  • 36 Rutland Ct Alameda, California - Alameda
    The path that goes through Bay Farm Island (overlooking the Coliseum) that connects to the Municipal Golf Course (Doolittle) is over run with weeds so that the path is narrow enough at some parts for only one person to pass through. I had to stop my bike and pull into the weeds to let a runner go through. If there's a weeding schedule then it should be done soon. If not, Public Works definitely needs to take a look at this area. Thank you
  • 2601 Harbor Bay Parkway Alameda, CA - Alameda
    Hello. Located on the Bay water front directly across the street from 2601 Harbor Bay Parkway is a big square homemade fort that someone made out of palm leaves and driftwood. People have been using the fort every day. It has a wood bench for sitting too. There is a concern of what / who is hiding inside the fort. They have also been moving the harbor rocks into a pile there.
  • Aughinbaugh Way Alameda 94502, United States - Alameda
    I was crossing the road at a clearly marked crosswalk, walking my bike, and a van flew by my going well over the speed limit. Please have a police car patrolling in the morning as cars are going way too fast around Bay Farm School. Also, going down Meccartney is like riding on a freeway. Please post an officer on that road too during the ferry times, am and pm.
  • Alameda 94621 United States - Alameda
    The bay trail bike-ped path from the Bay Farm bike bridge around “Mount Trashmore” to the Doolittle/Harbor Bay Parkway intersection is severely overgrown by weeds and wildflowers. As much as 2-3 feet of the path is unusable and blocked, making shared use by pedestrians and cyclists dangerous. Passing oncoming walkers or cyclists is iffy at best.
  • 883 Island Dr Alameda 94502, United States - Alameda
    Abandoned car in Safeway Harbor Bay lot has been there for weeks.
  • Channing Way & Robert Davey Jr Dr Alameda, CA, 94502, USA - Alameda
    Cars at this section of the street are driving much faster than the 25mph speed limit. Sometimes cars are going 40 to 50mph. This intersection is close to the Bay Farm elementary school and there are many kids in the neighborhood using this crosswalk, walking or biking. Crossing this intersection can be especially dangerous due to the curvature of the street and how fast the cars are. I also had a near miss here. This section can be dangerous even for cars exiting Channing Way. Perhaps a stop signs on Robert Davey will make sense.
  • 1508 Bay St Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda
    Across the street from 1508 Bay Street (on the Mastick Senior Center side) there is human feces on the curb and gutter.
  • Melrose Ave Alameda CA 94502, United States - Alameda

    I have sat on the corner for the last 30 minutes. In under 10 minutes, the last 12 out of 15 cars rolled through or just completely 100% ignored the stop signs including an AC Transit Bus and an official city of Alameda vehicle.

    We have children, elderly, and disabled in our direct neighborhood and I am tired of the city saying it takes time to handle these situations. There are a few years worth of complaints about this street and intersection. Our neighbors on Maitland and MeCartney want to see change before someone gets severely hurt.

    Our request is: We want speed bumps installed down Maitland and MeCartney to slow the traffic from Harbor Bay Pkwy to Island Drive.

  • North Loop Road And Harbor Bay Parkway Alameda, California - Alameda

    The southbound approach (North Loop Road) at Harbor Bay Parkway has poor sight distance due to the tall landscaping in the median on Harbor Bay Parkway. The landscaping needs to be trimmed to comply with Stopping Sight Distance standards explained in the Caltrans Highway Design Manual where drivers from southbound North Loop Road should be able to see an object about 3 to 4 feet tall approaching from eastbound Harbor Bay Parkway for a distance of 440 feet (assuming approach speeds of 40 mph).

    Also note that this location is within 700 feet of an elementary school and church and should warrant extra attention for potential safety risks.

  • Island Dr Alameda, CA, 94502, USA - Alameda

    1. The median strip continues to be an eyesore to all who enter or live in this area of Alameda (Island Drive). Yes, it has been somewhat weeded, but there is nothing planted that will grow and enhance the median strips. Are there sprinklers installed to keep the strip watered? Why was it allowed to dry up and die? Also, there are no lights on the strip. The trees are there, that is good. However, the bark is not a sufficient cover up in providing an attractive entrance to a large part of our city.
    2. In addition, the same is now true with the median strip on Encinal Ave. from High St to Fernside Blvd. This has been a well groomed strip for many years. Unfortunately, that is not the case now.
    3. Towata Park: This park near the Bay Farm Island bridge has had great care over many years. It was a lovely tribute to a well known and respected family in Alameda. It is now a dreadful mess. Once again dried up and not being cared for.

    Please respond ASAP to our comments and questions. Thank you.
