1701-1749 Excelsior Ave Oakland, CA, 94602, USA - Glenview
I am a Special Assistant with CM Gallo's office in District 5. I am writing on behalf of residents living at The Altenheim senior residence on Excelsior Street. They have requested a crosswalk be added on Excelsior at Linwood which is directly behind their building. (not sure if the address on the map is accurate) They have also asked that signs stating "Senior Residence or Facility" be added to this block.
Beaumont Ave & Excelsior Ave Oakland, CA, 94602, USA - Glenview
Hello, I am a homeowner on E36th Street and my kids ride the school bus from Edna Brewer to the temporary Glenview Elementary location in the Santa Fe neighborhood. I’ve noticed over the many years I’ve been in Glenview that drivers speed down Beaumont and Excelsior all day and all night. I’ve seen accidents, have heard accidents and have helped people that have been hurt in accidents. With all of the kids in the neighborhood walking to the school bus, walking to Edna Brewer and walking to Oakland High, we are LONG overdue for traffic monitoring. A traffic break at Beaumont and E 38th would be ideal and possibly speed bumps on both Beaumont and Excelsior within 3-4 blocks of the school’s would also help. But at the very least someone needs to come out and monitor the traffic speeds in the area. We’ve seen so many incidents where kids have almost been hit by cars speeding or turning when they’re not supposed to. Please help us keep our kids safe. Thanks.

I am a special assistant working with Councilmember Gallo in the Glenview neighborhood and have been contacted multiple times by residents regarding traffic/pedestrian safety issues at the intersection of E. 38th & Beaumont Avenue directly behind Edna Brewer Middle School. The community has requested a stop sign as a light has not been funded at this time. Students, seniors and others attempting to cross here are not feeling safe. In addition, there have been many collisions at this intersection and adding a stop sign may be the only way to slow down vehicles coming from Park Blvd and up from Beaumont as they exit 580. Thank you for your support.
