  • Park Maintenance Acknowledged
    3268 Lakeshore Avenue Oakland, CA 94610, USA - Lakeshore

    This report is for the small park that is located at the entrance to the parking lot that serves trader joes, walgreens, etc. The park should be a "No Smoking zone. It is in close proximity to a variety of businesses, and is a park (albeit a small one). Smokers have clearly taken notice that smoking is not prohibited, because there has been a smoker there every time I've stopped to enjoy a cup of coffee or a slice of pizza.

    Thank you for your help in making our City healthy and safe!

    Desperately need additional bike racks in front of arizmendi. There is only one rack for this very busy section of the street, and the rest of the folks end up locking their bikes to street signs. Thank you!

  • 460 Mandana Boulevard Oakland, CA 94610, USA - Lakeshore

    This intersection is a MESS for both pedestrians and cars, and given how much use it gets it needs immediate attention. There are a myriad of poorly filled potholes, bumps, cracks, etc. The pedestrian striping is faded, and cars and pedestrians come dangerously close to each other, which is particularly tricky given the steep downslope of Mandana. Please attack this often-used intersection as soon as possible.

    Massive, super dangerous pothole/pothole next to lake Merritt. Given the location and the severity this should be given high priority by public works.

  • Street Light Acknowledged
    3307 Grand Ave Oakland, CA 94610, USA - Grand Lake

    No light on public path leading up from Grand Ave. to Valle Vista Ave. The image in this picture was lit by the auto-flash on my camera. Without the flash you cannot see more than 5 feet in front of you. This is a public thoroughfare that needs to be lit to ensure safety.

    A large shrub and a tree are so overgrown that there is no room to walk on the sidewalk. This is an issue because this is a very narrow street and is dangerous for pedestrians.

    A large shrub and a tree are so overgrown that there is no room to walk on the sidewalk. This is an issue because this is a very narrow street and forces pedestrians onto the roadway.

    Faded crosswalk markings. This crosswalk is used hundreds of times a day by pedestrians, and needs to be painted properly to protect their safety.

  • 16 Vernon St. Oakland, CA - Adams Point

    There are a myriad of small potholes, large bumps, and cracks in the road along this entire block of Vernon St. next to Whole Foods. Given the increased volume of traffic that uses this road now, this is an issue that should be addressed sooner than later.

    Thanks!

  • Valle Vista Ave. At Mira Vista Ave. Oakland, CA - Grand Lake

    People are parking in an area of empty asphalt that occupies the upside of a retaining wall (see image for further detail). While this area was not marked with No Parking signs when it was built, it was marked with painted stripes which indicate that the area was not intended for parking.

    The cars parking in this area create a presently dangerous situation. They cover up the only One Way street sign that indicates that Valle Vista is a one way street for drivers who are coming down the hill. It also causes pedestrians who are walking down the hill to walk in the middle of the street. The cars parked there also shine their lights directly into the homes below at night, which is invasive for those homeowners.

    While it is a secondary concern, it is worth noting that the cars put a significant amount of weight on the retaining wall, which was likely not intended when it was constructed. That weight will cause the wall and the area to degrade faster than if there were not cars parked on it.

    To resolve this issue, we need No Parking signs installed in the area immediately.

    Given that this is a dangerous situation due to the covering of the One Way street sign, I would appreciate an immediate response to this request.

    Thanks!

  • 601 Valle Vista Ave. Oakland, CA - Grand Lake

    Hi There,

    There are numerous large chunks of asphalt missing near the point at which the road meets the curb. The missing chunks cause cars which are trying to park to end up on the curb, or jam their tires/rims into the curb. It also causes large piles of debris to get stuck in the holes when it rains, rather than the material flowing down the gutter as they should.

    A quick note regarding the location of the holes. The address I provided, 601 Valle Vista, is a corner lot that intersects Valle Vista and Mira Vista. The gaps in the asphalt are near the north end of the lot, on the Mira Vista end.
