  • 600 5th Street Oakland California - Old City-Produce And Waterfront
    This is a modern day Hooverville. This should not be happening on the fringes of one of the richest cities in America. It is an outrage. If the structures of our culture have failed so many people that there's a shanty town on the sidewalk then the city needs to acknowledge the problem and create a space for them to camp that includes services like trash removal and toilets rather than just allowing these sidewalk camps to spread. It's reached the point where pedestrian access is completely blocked and piles of garbage are blocking a whole lane of traffic. These people aren't just the few that fall through the cracks they are an entire community. They are people who have been evicted and lost work and have nowhere to go. This is not normal! I understand that this situation is complicated and hard for the city to deal with but it should not just be ignored. We have been so patient with this but it keeps getting worse and as months pass it's having a very negative effect on our community. We don't want the cops to come in and break it up, it just forms again a day later on the other side of the street. We want these people to be given a place to be, some dignity and basic services.
  • Pothole Acknowledged
    435 51st Street Oakland, California - Temescal
    This massive pothole is in the eastbound lane of 51st Street at/near 435 51st St. It is a major hazard and is extremely dangerous, since cars often swerve to miss it at the last minute. It also is causing damage to cars that do not swerve and instead hit the pothole. Please fill this pothole immediately!
  • 3532 Peralta St Oakland, CA 94608, Oakland, California - Clawson
    Homeless encampment has reached an all time high population. Garage piles are extending into the street, and up to a block away. Urine and feces (the smell) is a public health problem.

    an hour ago a neatly dressed young white couple driving this Mercedes coupe with vanity plates was witnessed leaning a mattress against the wall, drop a bag and drive off. LIC: L8R HOZN

  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    475-499 Hudson Street Oakland, California - Shafter
    Someone has put up a structure and is living under the freeway across from FROG Park where children are always playing. I've seen needles, bags and open signs of drug use. He has filled almost the entire block on Claremont under the freeway adjacent to him with carts full of belongings/garbage.
  • RAT INFESTATION Acknowledged
    Splash Pad Park Path Oakland, California - Lakeshore
    We have a major rat infestation at Splash Pad Park and it's been that way for years. Please don't refer this complaint to Alameda County Vector Control as they've been out numerous times to dust the tunnels and don't have the resources to solve the problem. The best solution would be the bait stations that are installed and serviced at the Lakeview Branch Library, the Lake Merritt Garden Center and probably dozens of other locations throughout the city. This is an ongoing health hazard and also a thorn in the side of the Splash Pad Park Grand Cru volunteers who regularly work in the park maintaining the California Native plant garden and more.
  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    Claremont Avenue And Hudson Oakland, California - Shafter
    For over half a year now a garbage pile continues to grow and expand on Claremont Avenue under the Highway 24 overpass near Hudson Street. I understand that this started out as a shopping cart of homeless possessions, but now it is truly just one big garbage dump that spans over half a city block. This is directly across from Frog Park where neighborhood kids like to play. I don't understand why the city allows this to grow and refuses to do anything about it (I know of multiple neighbors that continue to call about this on a regular basis with no response). More recently, the garbage pile includes multiple full Waste Management garbage bins that were taken from Rockridge residents. As a neighborhood resident that pays a monthly fee for garbage pick up, this doesn't make sense. Maybe we should all stop paying Waste Management and just haul our garbage over to Claremont Avenue and add it to the pile....it would save us a lot of money and it appears that the city is okay with this. Why can't we do better Oakland? Please respond and clean up this health hazard.
  • 979 53rd Street Oakland, California - Gaskill
    Temescal Creek park is covered in Foxtails. Pulling them is the only option and they need to be removed in the next day or two. Simply cutting them will allow them to blow all over the neighborhood spreading more grown in the area and endangering our pets outside the park. These are a dog owner's nightmare. This is a health and safety issue, not a “pretty park issue”.
    Foxtails torpedo-shaped awns are like bullets and can penetrate any part of a dog’s body. The awns most commonly lodge in a dog’s nose, ears, underbelly, rear end and paws. Long-haired dogs are particularly susceptible, as the barbed foxtail stays attached to the dog’s long fur and are difficult to spot. Foxtails can become lodged in between toes, in nostrils or in ear canals. Wherever the foxtail is located, once it’s through the skin of a dog it should be examined by a vet in order to make sure the entire awn is removed. That’s because once a foxtail awn begins traveling through your dog, they do not break down, but will travel through tissue and organs. http://www.reshareworthy.com/foxtail-grass-can-kill-your-dogs/
  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    3500-3598 M.L.K. Jr Way Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Longfellow
    There is a sever dumping issue at the corner of 36th and MLK. And more across the street on the east side.
  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    551-649 42nd Street Oakland, California - Temescal

    Underpass on 42nd street has been overun with trash. There are now 6 RVs/trailers taking up residency and as each new trailer establishes itself in the location more and more trash is finding its way onto the street.

    The side walks now on both sides of the underpass are littered with trash, human waste, and needles.

    The new occupants also are aggressive towards anyone who attempts to make their way through, and it appears they are using the trash to block off the side walk to force you to walk onto the street to bypass.

    Between this, and the underpass on 45th it is impossible to access public side walks without having to avoid human waste, drug paraphernalia, or hostility.

  • 572-598 45th Street Oakland, California - Temescal
    All of this debris, human feces, blocking the public sidewalk and making it inaccessible and unsafe for pedestrians to walk on, therefore causing children walking to school to walk into the street to get to pass by. This is a huge public safety issue and is unacceptable.
