Notified About

  • 1427 34th Street Oakland, California - Clawson
    The two structures at 1427 34th St., Oakland CA 94608, have been abandoned for many years and are in such seriously deteriorated condition that they look like they could collapse at any moment. Clearly whomever owns these has no intention to put them into serviceable condition, so I am asking the city to condemn them and tear them down post haste.
  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    52nd And Genoa St Oakland Ca - Santa Fe
    mattress dumped a few days ago. now the pile is growing.
  • Pothole Acknowledged
    7018 Broadway Terrace Oakland, California - Glen Highlands
    This has been a problem here for years -- if you look across the street, you'll see a culvert pipe and culvert. Think there might be a connection? Do more than throw asphalt down -- dig, and you'll probably find a broken culvert pipe down under there. It'll take more than an asphalt patch to fix it, folks. You'll have to dig and probe, to find the break.
  • 5801 Racine Street Oakland , CA - Bushrod

    For the past 15+ years, members of the community have been requesting improvements to the "crosswalk" at the corner of 58th & Telegraph. Numerous people have been hit due to the lack of attention and respect by motorist who use this portion of Telegraph as a speedway to get to either Highway 24 or Berkeley. There is definitely not proper signage or lights to highlight that pedestrians are utilizing this popular crosswalk.

    Here are a few examples :
    Wednesday: The photo attached was taken Wednesday night when we witnessed a man going Northbound on Telegraph almost hit a woman who was crossing the street . All other cars stopped, but he did not feel the need to, shouting expletives and other unnecessary comments.
    Saturday: We were hanging our anniversary sign Saturday, and we witnessed about 6 people that were almost hit. I guess getting to the Cal Game was a matter of "life or your death" for some people.
    Sunday: Following worship, we witness cars almost hit a man and his family with small children in the crosswalk. The car was in half of the crosswalk! Craziness!

    Please address this issue. Traffic studies have been done and nothing has transpired. Previous councilpersons were notified, and nothing was done. We thank you for being swift in this matter.

  • Macarthur Fwy 580 West Park Blvd Exit Oakland, CA - Lynn-Highland Park

    I reported this situation months ago on this site, but never even received an acknowledgement.
    When you exit 580 West at PArk blvd, you must drive down two blocks of frontage road until you actually reach Park. There are holes—MANY holes, big enough to bend an axle. I blew a tire in one of them months back. It looks as if the road has been bombed repeatedly. I have live near here for almost two years. It has never been touched. They are becoming craters, to the point where I must travel on other streets to get home.

    Many streets in much better condition get attended to. This is truly something that needs attention. PLEASE!!

  • 428 3rd St Oakland CA 94607, Oakland, CA - Old City-Produce And Waterfront
    Now that there has been a gunshot death inside Club Anton (instead of just extreme noise, unruly patrons, altercations, and a prior shooting involving Club Anton customers outside the club), PLEASE RESPOND TO THE YEARS OF COMPLAINTS (to the owner, the police, Nancy Nadal, Lynnette McElhaney, and other City agencies and officials). REVOKE CLUB ANTON'S LIQUOR LICENSE AND SHUT IT DOWN!
  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    3834 Opal Street Oakland, California - Mosswood
    On the Manila Avenue frontage of the Buddhist Temple.
  • 500 Broadway Oakland, California - Old City-Produce And Waterfront
    The underpass on Broadway between 5th and 6th Streets requires (1) pressure washing at both street level and at the top of the red pillars to get rid of the ugly, smelly bird droppings, which really make the artwork look gross, and (2) repair to the City-installed lighting at the bottom of the pillars. We really appreciate the recently improved trash pickups by the City and CalTrans' now keeping the underpass lit from above during the day. These last two requests are City and NOT CalTrans matters, since they relate to the area where the "artwork" pillars are located on and above the sidewalk on the street side of the CalTrans fence.
