This light remains unfixed. Two other lights in Lakeside park (holding up the chain) also remain unfixed. Service id 259801 reported in October, and id 315316 a month ago. Generally, the street light crew does a great job. But, the park lights also play an important role in making Oakland look better, feel safer, and actually be safer. These three lights cannot be missed since they are prominent. Visitors to Oakland - hearing all the bad stuff about us - confirm their impressions when they see what looks like a blighted city. So, I will be happy to meet with the relevant electrician, and point at each of these lights to get this done. Or, tell me what kind of bulb to put in, and I will do it myself.
Yes, I confirmed the lights are now working. It appears to have something to do with the nearby part light installation. I appreciate you double-checking them, and also providing follow up contacts if needed. Also, it seems that the street lights in general (not the park lights though) are working better in the various parts of the city that I go, so thanks for trying to keep all the lights on. Keeping every single light working properly, really helps improve safety and the image of Oakland.
Still out. The pole is directly in front of the very big words reading "Lakeview Court".
This light overhangs Lakeshore Ave., on the side of Lakeshore Ave. where E15th starts. It does not overhang E15th. Please fix. Thanks.
Here's the photo. Sign is strapped upside down.
Northerly not norherly.
Looks like these are fixed, making it much safer to walk there at night. Thank you.
I reported this also on 11/15, as request number 434171. Public Works says it was addressed on 11/26. I reported back since then twice that it was not fixed and that it creates a hazard to cars and people over that dark stretch.
I confirmed again this evening (11/28) that this issue has not been fixed.
These lights are all cycling on and off still, as I observed this evening. Please fix this hazard. Thanks.
This pole is closest to the entrance to the parking lot behind the church.
it is literally right where I marked it on the map, and the map showing on this page pinpoints it exactly. I also provided a pole number, and the map picked the address general range. Is this information not showing on your computer or is there another problem preventing you from reviewing all this information? The map shows it as the corner of 2nd and Jackson., directly across from Encuentro.
This is not a street light, but a light in the park. There is a street light also across from Lakeview Cafe but it is not the one out. Instead, this light is about a dozen or so yards in from Lakeshore Ave, perpendicular to Lakeshore Ave, along the concrete path that has the names of creeks showing in the concrete itself. It is the first one along that concrete path. Also, correction. This has been out since early 2010, not 2009. Yes, this would be a lot easier if the City put pole numbers on all these measure DD lights.
PWA Call Center
there are no pole numbers, and no obvious address points to make pictures useful. As a further help to you, these lights are out between Lake Merrit Blvd, and the court house. There a lot of fast moving cars on this stretch, and its sketchy at night. So, you need to send a truck there at night, or put pole numbers on all these Measure DD poles so I can help you reduce this safety hazard even more. My camera skills are poor as you may have noticed from previous postings on seeclickfix and the other hundred or so reported directly to pwacallcenter since early spring 2009. If I had either addresses or pole numbers, I would give you more definite information.
Thanks for reporting those Mr. Katz. It makes a big difference to safety especially as the days get shorter. It's also good exercise to walk around and check for them!
This light in front of the pergoda, and another one near it have been out since they were first installed shortly before the first Oakland Marathon race. I have reported it to PWC Call Center web reporting, and to Oakland Park maintenance crews working in front of these lights several times. Though the PWC Call Center generally does a good job, this issue is an exception. Not once has the City even contacted me to find out more. I am willing to meet the crew there to identify them if that is the reason. Or, if the City wants, I can mark them somehow. It also raises a general question to be resolved: there are too many poles without numbers, including all the new ones on the 12 St renovation. Am willing to help number them, with volunteers, if the City needs that kind of help. Finally, these two have never worked since first installed. Presumably someone billed the city or reported to the city that they work and got paid. Though small scale, public funds are still involved in paying for something not properly done, and the City Auditor should audit these invoices.
